Pricing reflects the inaugural First Edition ID.3.
Reservations for the ID.3 opened in May 2019.
There will be 30 000 First Edition units.
The Volkswagen ID.3’s voyage from concept, to prototype to reality, has taken quite a while, not unlike the Tesla Model 3 experience. Depending on your favorite auto news source, Volkswagen was either in way over its head with numerous software issues or they were on track with the development and assembly. Now, however, one can officially order a new VW ID.3 First Edition and expect delivery as early as this September.
There is one caveat. If you opt for an early VW ID.3, your car will not be completely done, at least that’s how caradisiac.com puts it in their story. The issue is that both the App Connect (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and augmented reality head-up display functionalities will be inoperative.
These First Edition Volkswagen ID.3 will be powered by a rear-mounted 150 kW (201 horsepower) electric motor with a 58 kWh battery pack which offers a 420 km (261 miles) range WLTP.
The base First Edition starts at 39 990 € ($44,900 US) and is well-equipped with a 10-inch touchscreen, 18-inch wheels, heated front seats and steering wheel, active cruise control, and more. The First Edition Plus is 44,990 € while the loaded First Edition Max goes for 49 990 €.
As we know, the Volkswagen ID.3 is not expected to come to North America, at least not in the near future. The first electric VW ID. vehicle for our market will be the ID.4.
