Volkswagen added three new ID.3 trims, including a more sporty, a more powerful, and a lower-priced model. The small all-electric car has been updated with more tech, software, and spunk.

The ID.3 was introduced to the world in 2019 as Volkswagen’s first fully electric vehicle based on the MEB platform.

Last year, 140,800 ID.3 models were sold, making it the VW Group’s second best-selling EV with combined ID.4/ ID.5 sales reaching 223,100. Through the first three months of 2024, over 26,000 ID.3’s have been delivered.

With newer, more advanced EVs hitting the market, Volkswagen launched the new ID.3 earlier this month.

The “major” upgrades include new software and infotainment (with ChatGPT). VW’s new system features a larger touchscreen with an improved design.

With a stronger and more efficient motor, the new ID.3 (Pro S) delivers 228 hp (170 kW) as standard with up to 347 miles (550 km) WLTP range. The upgraded model also features faster charging speeds with up to 175 kW DC charging capacity and added battery pre-conditioning.
