Next spring, VW will officially present the new, second generation of ID.3, which has the mission to become the latest chapter of the success story of the ID family. The end is not really an end, as it only means that starting from next year onwards Volkswagen will add its main plant in Wolfsburg to the production network of the ID family. That, of course, is an indication for a growing customer demand.
“The new ID.3 demonstrates our commitment to quality, design and sustainability. The design has matured, and we’ve upgraded the materials used in the interior,” says Imelda Labbé, Volkswagen Board Member for Sales, Marketing and After Sales. Different suggestions from customers have been incorporated by VW’s development team to enhance the standard equipment package: “The needs of our customers are always front and center for us. That’s why we listen carefully and focus on gearing our product portfolio to their requirements,” Labbé adds.
The standard equipment now includes some new features such as:
Increased system efficiency (latest software generation) and OTA (over-the-air) updates
Interior screen that’s 12 inches (30.5 centimeters) long diagonally
Removable luggage compartment floor
Central console with 2 cup holders
Plug & Charge
EVRP (Electric Vehicle Route Planner)
Latest generation of fully integrated assistance systems
Auto Trendy’s take:
“Volkswagen” means “the people’s car” in the German language, and the company keeps adding value to that meaning by its actions. Active listening to customers is something that should be a standard in the automotive industry, but it is not so often that a company releases an entirely new model based on customer input. Therefore, we believe that the German conglomerate is on the right path to continue being one of the biggest car producers, despite the challenges of the dynamic environment.
