Electric Volkswagen ID.3 Prototype Spotted Without Camo In Stuttgart

VW is investing heavily in its ID. EV family and by the looks of this un-camo’d example, it’ll seamlessly fit into buyer’s lives.

Volkswagen is betting hard on the ID.3 for the European market. It’s no coincidence that the ID.3 is a 5-door hatchback as the Golf has been a perennial best-seller in its home market for decades. As the MK8 Golf continues to be delayed and VW market shares drop slightly in the segment, VW will come in with a one-two punch.

The ID.3 will undoubtedly quickly rise to the top of EV sales on the old continent as it’ll fit everywhere, provide the required space and range and now, we know it’ll look fairly normal.

We know this because @GregKable posted a few pictures of the car that happen to be in front of his house in Stuttgart on Instagram: “A lightly disguised @Volkswagen ID. 3 prototype just pulled up in front of my house in Stuttgart”

The sad bit and it’s no secret, the ID.3 is not slatted to come to North America. Odds are that demand will be fairly high and at first, at least, VW will have a hard time supplying the demand. Building the car is not the issue exactly, it’s sourcing the batteries. VW’s investing heavily here as well. There’s a lot riding on the success of what may turn out to be the most significant new Volkswagen of the early 21st Century.
