      They took the gear selector design from BMW i3!

      Here's a wacky video of ID3 interior.

      It looks like that's the "gear" selector on the side of the instrument pod:

      Although my dislike of new-fangled gear selectors is well documented, I actually prefer when their design (like the i3 and ID.3) has NOTHING to do with the familiar shift lever. Makes it less likely to revert to muscle memory and make a mistake.

      I still absolute hate capacitive steering wheel buttons tho...way to easy to accidentally activate.

      The original Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable kicked of the trend, amongst domestic American cars, and quickly spread to other members of the Ford and Mercury line-ups.
      The Crown Victoria, Mustang, Tempo/Topaz, Escort/Mercury Twin(?), and Probe were all grille-less, at some point in time.

      Pontiac's Grand Prix sedan, of the same period, ditched above the bumper grilles, on some trim levels, in favor of Sable-like light bars, or just smooth plastic between the headlights.
      The Sunfire and TranSport also went grille-less, above the bumper.

      The last few generation of Oldsmobiles (Aurora, Intrigue, and Alero) were grille-less.

      Saturn's first generation of sedans, wagons, and coupes were grille-less.

      Honda's Accord, Civic, Del Sol, and Prelude were grille-less at various times.

      Toyota's Celica, Supra, Corolla, and MR2 were grille-less at times.

      Dodge had two generations of grille-less Intrepids, and Chrysler had the grille-less (above the bumper) Concorde.

      And so on....

      That's some fresh George Bush I-Era goodness, right there.

      I'm saying it right here and now...the lightbar will make a comeback, in the BEV era.

      Seat el-Born is said to be almost identical exterior and interior as ID.3

      Some of you might know the ID.3 went into production back in November. What you might not know (at least I didn't know) is that deliveries won't start until the summer. My guess is this buys them time to get through "production hell" without actually impacting customers/stock price so by the time this inventory is depleted later in the summer the Zwickau factory will be at full capacity. In the meantime, VW is storing thousands of cars in various parking lots/fields and this guy found them. He starts at the Leipzig-Altenburg Airport where the cars used to be stored in a field (you can see on google maps) but finds they were later moved likely due to mud. He then goes to somewhere closer to the factory where he finds a ton of them in various parking lots. See below.

      cars start to show up near 13:11

      Just noticed your post.

      Interesting. I was wondering what VW AG was doing with the ID3s.
