Range record: ID.3 makes the journey from Zwickau to Switzerland on a single charge
“This car has everything, it is compact but spacious, has a cool, almost futuristic design and a low drag coefficient”, Egolf said after arriving in Schaffhausen. Although the record-breaking journey is not entirely comparable with day-to-day trips, it nevertheless underpins the everyday practicality of the ID.3. “With its high-volt battery, efficient drivetrain and fast charging capability, even long journeys are not a problem”, said Reinhard de Vries, Managing Director Technology and Logistics at Volkswagen Sachsen. “This is also a strong message for the team in Zwickau and for the entire ID. team.”
The standardized consumption rating of the ID.3 is 15.4-14.5 kWh/100 km. 44 percent of the record journey was on highways and 56 percent on country roads. Felix Egolf completed the journey from Zwickau to Schaffhausen in roughly nine hours. The vehicle that clocked up the record was a manganese grey ID.3 1st Pro Performance with a 58 kWh battery and 204 PS.
The ID.3 is built at the Zwickau electric car factory and is the first member of Volkswagen’s all-electric ID. In 2021, the first full production year as an EV factory, some 300,000 electric vehicles based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) will leave the Zwickau plant.
