The ID 3 will launch with the 1st edition, powered by a mid-range 58kWh battery. The allocation, unspecified by VW, has already been filled in the UK. VW did say it had achieved its target of 35,000 pre-orders worldwide. The standard ID 3 order books will open next year, with deliveries in autumn.
They won’t start delivering until summer 2020, and won’t be available in the US initially. Looks more like an i3 than any other EV to me, even though it’s positioned against the Leaf. Looking forward to move good EV options, even if they aren’t available in the US yet.
