The cool new ID.X highlights some of the changes to come.
Some interior updates are only a month away.
First German deliveries began in September 2020.
Volkswagen’s massive investment in EVs clearly isn’t limited to launching dozens of new products over a few years. Unlike other leading EV brands, Volkswagen’s also intent on keeping its vehicles fresh. Only 13 months after production of the affordable ID.3 began, Volkswagen’s already talking about upcoming changes.
The current global EV leader, Tesla, has done little physically to its flagship Model S in a decade. There have been countless iterations and a mild refresh some four years ago, but the car’s all but completely identical to the original. Volkswagen’s vision, it seems, is to upgrade the product as quickly as possible.
Though compact ID.3 launched just over two years ago, as of next month, Volkswagen will introduce upgrades in the car’s cabin. The standard 10-inch screen will be replaced by a 12-inch unit, some interior materials and fabrics will be replaced with higher-quality ones, along with other upgrades in the form of contrast stitching.
For 2023, the exterior, according to Autobild, will get a new hood, updated front fascia, while the rear will receive a new taillight treatment.
Sadly, we in North America, are still not destined to see the ID.3 on our roads.
