Why Lease A Volkswagen ID.3?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The ID.3 has more than enough space for 4 adults in comfort, and 5 for shorter distances. A longer wheelbase than the Golf equates to slightly more room overall, but if you’re used to the size of a modern family hatchback, the ID.3 will present no issues. However, top-spec Tour models only have the option of 4 seats.
There is 385 litres of boot space with the rear seats upright, which is slightly less than the Nissan Leaf, but the Volkswagen holds more with the seats folded. Higher-spec ID.3s come with a movable boot floor to create a fully flat base for luggage when the rear seats are folded, as well as somewhere to put the charging cables. Seat nets, door pockets and covered compartments in the centre console cater for odds and ends.
With a wide choice of motors and battery capacities, according to official economy tests, the ID.3 is good for between 217 and 336 miles of range on a single charge. Pre-configured combinations of batteries and motors make up the ID.3 range, but not all pairings are available on all trims. Don’t forget that electric driving ranges will vary with driving style, traffic and weather conditions.
As the ID.3 is an electric car, there are no annual road tax charges to pay and lower spec models qualify for the UK government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG). A zero-emission vehicle, the ID.3 is also exempt from charges when entering certain low emission and congestion zones. Low company car tax is another benefit.
ID.3The ID.3 is only available as a 5-door hatchback.
The Volkswagen ID.3 Vs Competitors
The ID3 is an electric 5-door family hatchback, similar in size to a Volkswagen Golf. The ID.4 is a 5-seat electric SUV, with a larger boot than the ID.3 with similar dimensions to a Volkswagen Tiguan.
Connected to a 7kW home wallbox, smaller battery ID.3s can be charged from 0-100% in 7 hours and 30 minutes. The longest time any ID.3 takes to refill on an 11kW public charge point is the same, but if you connect the car to a 100kW rapid charger, a 5-80% battery top-up takes between just 31 and 38 minutes.
The Volkswagen ID.3 has 385 litres of luggage space with the rear seats in place. This increases to 1267 litres of room with them folded. That’s more than the Nissan Leaf and smaller cars such as the Renault Zoe, but less than an MG5 EV or Tesla Model 3. The ID.3 is also comparable with the Volkswagen Golf for the amount of cargo it can carry.
Departing from the usual VW trim structure, the ID.3 range is built around 4 pre-configured battery and motor choices distributed throughout the trim levels. The entry level ID.3 City has a range of around 215 miles, similar to the ID.3 Style which adds design-led niceties. The Life, Business, Family, Tech and Max do around 260 miles on a charge with varying levels of power and option packs, while the Tour’s 336 miles make it the longest-range ID.3, with all the goodies appropriate for a range-topping model.
Inside, the ID.3’s flat floor means accommodating passengers and their paraphernalia is easy. There’s lots of room up front, and even though the ID.3 is similar in size to the latest Golf, its longer wheelbase means rear-seat passengers have VW Passat levels of space to stretch out. Interior oddments storage is good, with various door pockets and covered compartments.
Striking looks, a good use of space and decently long all-electric ranges make the ID.3 a popular leasing choice. If you like technology, you’ll find lots to like here and that’s before you factor in the electric powertrain. The choice of batteries, motors and option packs means there’s also lots of scope to find the perfect ID.3 combination to suit you.
