Wolfsburg - Volkswagen has released more details about its upcoming Golf-sized electric hatchback that’s due in 2020, and these new pictures, with less camo than previous teaser shots, give us a better idea of how it will look.
The company has also finally given it a name, which is ID.3.
ID doesn’t stand for identity, but rather ‘intelligent design’ and the number 3 signifies its class positioning (leaving space for smaller and larger ID models above and below) as well as its significance in ushering in VW’s third major chapter after Beetle and Golf.
Volkswagen has just started the pre-booking process for customers in select European markets, and we are currently awaiting confirmation on whether the ID.3 will be offered in South Africa.
Although it won’t be cheap, owing to high battery prices, VW is pitching the ID.3 as one of the more accessible electric vehicles with pricing in the upper end of the Golf’s price range.
