Six weeks after opening orders for the ID.3 1ST, a limited edition reserved for people who have made a pre-order, Volkswagen is opening its new electric compact to everyone. Available in two battery configurations and five levels of finishes, the Volkswagen ID.3 starts from € 37,990 excluding bonus on the French market. Explanations …
Unveiled last September in Frankfurt in its final version, the Volkswagen ID.3 takes it to the next level. After having limited orders to the 1st special edition only a few weeks ago, the manufacturer is now opening its order book to all and revealing its new electric range in detail.
Pro Performance and Pro S
While waiting for the 45 kWh pack, which should arrive in the course of next year, the ID.3 range revolves around two main models: the ID.3 Pro Performance which incorporates a 58 kWh battery for a range of 436 km in the WLTP cycle and the ID.3 Pro S. Considered a “long range” version, the latter receives a 77 kWh battery and can travel up to 549 kilometers on a single charge.
On the engine side and while waiting for the announced arrival of other engines, the two versions share the same block. This develops up to 150 kW of power (204 hp) and 310 Nm of torque. If the top speed is identical to the two models (160 km / h), the ID.3 Pro S is a little less sporty due to the overweight associated with its large battery. It cuts the 0 to 100 in 7.9 seconds against 7.3 for the Performance version.
On the recharging part, both models have an 11 kW charger. Given the size of its battery, the ID.3 Pro S goes a step further with fast charging and accepts a power of 125 kW compared to 100 for the ID.3 Performance.
