    Thread: New 2020 Volkswagen ID.3

    1. 09-09-2019 03:36 PM #1
      https://www.carscoops.com/2019/09/he...duction-guise/

      VW’s core electric model will be offered in three battery configurations; a base 45kWh version that offers 205 miles (330km) of range, a mid-level 58kWh version that can cover 261 miles (420km) and a range-topping 77kWh model that will offer 342 miles (550km) out of a full charge.

      Power is provided by a rear-mounted 201 HP electric motor driving the rear axle with the latter two battery packs. Base models get a 147 HP electric motor but in both cases, torque is rated the same, at 229 lb-ft (310 Nm).

      The base 45 kWh model will be capable of charging at a rate of 50kW as standard, with VW offering 100kW as an option. The mid-level 58kWh ID.3 will be compatible with 100kW of charging capacity as standard, promising that 30 minutes on the plug will be enough for 155 miles (250km) of driving range. Range-topping variants will be able to charge at 125 kW.

      Customers wishing for more will be able to choose between the 1st Plus and the 1st Max models; the 1st Plus adds a rear view camera system, ACC Adaptive Cruise Control and the Kessy Advanced keyless access locking and starting system, as well as design seats, a centre console with two USB-C connections and ambient lighting, matrix LED headlights, matrix side lights, brake lights, turn indicators and tail light clusters as well as 19-inch light-alloy wheels.

      Finally, the range-topping VW ID.3 1st Max will include the new, augmented reality (AR) head-up display, a Beats sound system, a large panorama sliding/tilting glass roof as well as 20-inch light-alloy wheels.

      Ewh.

      I don't see this supplanting the Golf anytime soon...

      Oh, and the new logo is a fail, IMO.

      This looks very well done. Familiar enough for most ICE drivers to make the switch, but still moves things forward in terms of the interior and packaging.

      But for my purposes, I really want to know about the ID.4x or whatever they're calling the EV that will be sold in the US...

      I think it's a good first model since it should appeal to most people who want a car like this. I love the tech and the range. My issue is that it looks too much like every other CUV type vehicle. I hope that they make a Golf sized vehicle. If this does well maybe they'll even make a GTI version.

      Where have I seen that screen before...

      Ah. Got it.





      The pedals are really dumb and I'd cover that up immediately so I wouldn't be irritated every time I got in the car. I'm pretty blasé about the interior, but I'm okay with that on a car literally designed to go from a to b.

      Otherwise I mostly like it. Especially the RWD part. If a software crack would let me kick the rear end out it'd be akin to the old days.

      I thought the pause/play is a cute surprise design element. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      It was in some other prototype, which was okay, but in a production car? That'd be a "no" from me. I love plenty of fun design, but that one is annoying to me. Probably because it's a car and not a CD player. Let it be a car instead of an electronic device.

      Not bad. Wonder how the cargo space is. The high liftover indicates a high floor as well, which would make sense given the rear motor. Just curious what its volume is and if the frunk is anything useful as well.

      yes i would think the market has spoken and that the CUV is the desired body style

      A RWD compact hatch? Yes please. When was the last time something like that was on the market??????

      I don't hate it. Looking forward to more details as it gets closer to production.

      The 77kwh version might be interesting at the right price.

      This looks really well executed. Good job VW

      I'm glad they kept the thick Golf C-pillar and the parallel bumper and rear door cut line... a subtle heritage design cue without the heavy-handedness of other "signature" design cues you see with other brands.

      Bummer, but not a deal breaker. Rear cargo looks ok-ish. Overall I really like this, and hope it'll do very well for the brand.

      The rear cargo is the same as a Golf - 380 litres.

      However, rear seat room is the same as a Passat

      It reminds me of a GTI mixed with a Bolt. Still has the same tall hatch proportions, but with the classic VW quarter panel. Its not a bad looking car.

      Interesting. Why aren’t we getting this one?

      Why are there so few buttons in electric cars. I like the outside but the lack of a simple usable interior really ruins it for me.

      That interior couldn't get any simpler, TBH.

      The lack of buttons is because ID.3 has a talk-based interface, like BMW and Mercedes have now.
      Yeah, I suppose talk-based will suck for deaf/speech-challenged people.

      Seeing it in scale with a person, really helps to understand/visualize the design.
      The "golden vanilla" color of this one is really nice too.
      This is really a MK.9 Golf, but it will just uncomfortably coexist with the also new Mk.8.

      That white and orange interior is really nice, and so much more interesting than the bleak Model 3 interior.
