The is good surrounding the new ID.3 for Volkswagen. Of the 37,000 pre-order, 85% of all future owners are new to the brand. This is in striking contrast to the Golf where 85% of current owners have owned a Golf or another Volkswagen in the past.

Most of the order holders, 85% actually, are also tech-savvy males however Volkswagen is slightly disappointed by this fact – they had hoped for more female share. Jürgen Stackmann, sales boss for the VW brand, told the Financial Times (subscription required) that: “The ID.3 is igniting with a population that is about 10 years younger than the average profile [of our customers], which is around 58 in Europe,”
