ID.3: just as inexpensive as a car with an internal combustion engine
In the ID.3, Volkswagen has developed a completely innovative electric car. This will be the first updatable electric car from Volkswagen based on the modular electric drive toolkit (MEB). The objective is to deliver the 30,000 pre-booked ID.3 vehicles in the 1st Edition to customers throughout Europe at almost the same time.
Less expensive than comparable internal combustion models
The cost of ownership analysis shows that, in terms of acquisition and operation expenses,: an ID.3 is less expensive, depending on the model variant, than a comparable internal combustion engine model. The basic version with a range of 330 kilometers costs less than €23,430 in Germany, following deduction of the environmental bonus. In addition, ID.3 drivers in Germany save about €840 per year on operating expenses. Among other items, there is no road vehicle tax, no oil changes are required and the ID.3 is assigned to a less expensive insurance class (class 17).
New electric ID.4 with neutral carbon balance
Volkswagen will be bringing the first electric SUV produced with a neutral carbon balance onto the roads with the ID.4, Ulbrich announced in Berlin: With the ID. family, we are showing that clean mobility as possible. The best thing is that driving an electric car not only protects the environment and your bank balance but is also enjoyable. I am very much looking forward to bringing the ID.3 to our customers in the summer.
Volkswagen is reducing CO2 emissions in the production of the ID. For example, the electric car plant at Zwickau uses power from renewable sources.
Outlook for 2020: market launch of the ID.3
Over the next few years, Volkswagen intends to become the world market leader in e-mobility and is investing €33 billion for this purpose throughout the Group up to 2024. Of this figure, €11 billion will be invested by the Volkswagen brand. In addition, the production of Volkswagen’s new electric car generation in China will start at the end of the year.
