Earlier today Volkswagen launched, for the first time, pre-bookings for its all-new EV model, the ID.3.
The first member of the ID. family is now available for pre-order in Europe. The name of this new fully-electric vehicle is confirmed to be the Volkswagen ID.3.
Available for pre-order is a special launch edition called ID.3 1st. This edition is limited to 30,000 vehicles and has a range of 420 km (WLTP).

From today, everyone can take part,” said Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen brand responsible for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales. “With the ID.3, we will be ushering in the third major chapter of strategic importance in the history of our brand, following the Beetle and the Golf. With the ID.3, we are making the electric car fit for mass mobility. Initially, we will electrify Europe with the ID.3 and then other regions with further electric models in the ID. family which are to follow in the near future.”
