Volkswagen unveils its first ID electric car, and it’s reasonably priced


Volkswagen isn’t new to electric vehicles, but at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany on Monday, the German carmaker unveiled the first in its series of battery-powered cars based on VW’s new MEB — which means “modular electric drive matrix” — platform.

The ID.3, part of a new look for the company, was finally revealed to be a hatchback plug-in car similar in size to the VW Golf and the first of several different types of electric vehicles (think a minivan, sedan, bus, and even a dune buggy) with the same electric base that can be built on the electric framework.  

The ID.3 is set to be more than a concept car and will start production for a mid-2020 delivery in Germany with battery range of up to 340 miles and eventually a smaller battery version with up to 205 miles. Fast charging means it can charge 180 miles in 30 minutes.  Read more…
