Volkswagen has recently pitched the second generation of its ID.3 electric car, and it's not just any upgrade. The Volkswagen ID.3 now comes with a sharper exterior design, a refined interior, and the latest software with all comfort and assistance systems. The car is available in new colors such as Dark Olivine Green, and uses animal-free and sustainable materials of the highest quality.
The new Volkswagen ID.3 is a true commitment to value, design, and sustainability, according to Imelda Labbé, a member of Volkswagen's management team responsible for sales, marketing, and aftermarket. This bestseller is manufactured in Zwickau, Dresden, and Wolfsburg, and it will be handed over to customers in Europe with a carbon-neutral balance. The measures taken at the factory in Zwickau and at the battery cell manufacturer reduce CO2 emissions in production, and climate protection measures with certified carbon dioxide credits compensate for the remaining emission share.
The interior of the ID.3 has also been refined to provide greater added value. The equipment in the interior is manufactured without animal elements as standard. For example, the steering wheel is now covered in vegan leather, and a large proportion of recycled material has been used. The touchscreen measures 12 inches on the diagonal, and various customer wishes have been implemented in the menu structure.
With the ID.3, Volkswagen already offers first-class technologies and innovations in the compact class. The use of cloud data in the current version of the optional Travel Assist system represents the next step on the road to highly automated driving. Park Assist Plus with memory function enables automatic retrieval and use of saved parking maneuvers. The cloud-based voice control function and Head-up Display make everyday driving easier.
So, how much does the new Volkswagen ID.3 cost? The price for the new ID.3 starts at $33,995 in the United States, which is reasonable for an electric vehicle with so many features and capabilities. With Volkswagen's commitment to electric mobility, it's clear that the ID.3 is just the beginning of what the company has in store for the future of sustainable transportation.
