January 6th, 2020 | by Steve Hanley

People who attended an event for ID.3 reservation holders in Denmark last week were greeted with some bad news. Deliveries will be delayed at least until August.


The Volkswagen ID.3’s Battery

January 2nd, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Below is a Volkswagen press release from early December. We don't typically publish straight press releases, but I figured this one could be a useful point of reference in years to come. There isn't an enormous amount of information here, but there is a basic explanation of how the VW ID.3's battery system is set up, including certain key specs and figures. Read on if you are curious


Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition Prices In Ireland — €40,000–50,000

November 29th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

The Volkswagen Golf is one of the most popular mass-market cars in the world, and the question now is whether the Volkswagen ID.3 will democratize all-electric cars at a similar scale. However, in at least some places, prices are higher than expected

VW ID.3 Communicates With LED Light Bar On Dashboard

October 10th, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

When it goes on sale, the Volkswagen ID. 3 will feature an interactive LED light bar that will facilitate communication between the driver and the car. Presumably it will be included in other ID. branded cars as well.


Volkswagen ID.3 vs. Volkswagen Golf — 5 Year Cost of Ownership Comparison

September 19th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

For this analysis, I'm comparing the Volkswagen ID.3 to the lowest trim Volkswagen Golf and the highest trim Golf, but not adding any options/extras. The ID.3 likely has top-of-the-line technology, so even the base ID.3 should probably be compared to higher-trim versions of the Volkswagen Golf. Consider this an unfair handicap for the incumbents


Volkswagen ID.3 vs. Nissan LEAF & Hyundai Kona EV — Range & Price Comparisons

September 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We still don't have much info on the Volkswagen ID.3, but we have a little bit to go on regarding price and range. The base version of the ID.3 is supposed to be under €30,000. I'm assuming that means just under, so will round up to €30,000. The "up to" (idealistic) WLTP range on that trim is 330 km (205 miles). How do these figures compare to the Nissan LEAF and Hyundai Kona


Volkswagen ID.3 Arrives — Superb Mix Of Quality & Affordability

September 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Some years ago, Volkswagen Group discovered that the only legitimate way forward in the auto world was electrification. (Who knows what triggered that realization?) From that point on, from everything I've seen in the past few years, part of the company has been working hard to develop high-quality, competitive electric vehicles. The new ID.3 is proof of that

July 11th, 2019 | by Steve Hanley

Volkswagen has begun making pre-production versions of its ID.3 electric car ahead of full production, which is scheduled for the middle of 2020.


What Have We Just Learned About The 2020 Volkswagen ID.3 All-Electric Hatchback?

May 8th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Earlier today, Volkswagen held a press conference and livestream in preparation for the launch of the new all-electric ID.3 hatchback. Although we didn't learn very much new information, VW came across as very serious, and one or two interesting points stood out to me. Reservations are open now (at least, in some European markets). These are for the initial 30,000 customers of the "ID.3 1st" launch editions


Elon’s Secret Sauce

February 19th, 2020 | by Guest Contributor

Elon Musk may be a showman and a visionary, but he is unfit to be a CEO. His run-ins with the SEC, intemperate tweets, and a catalogue of missed deadlines show that he does not have the character or the competence to run a major public company


7% Plug-In Vehicle Share In Germany!

February 18th, 2020 | by Jose Pontes

The German plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market started the year on fire, jumping 128% year over year (YoY), to a record 16,131 registrations. That smashed the previous record (12,026 units) set last October, so it seems the German locomotive has (finally) been set in motion


Auto Industry: Incentivized To Not Change

February 16th, 2020 | by Alex Voigt

Every nation of this world will do its best to protect its industry for the good of the country's economy and its people. Politicians are elected to make sure industries and jobs are doing well, to stabilize income, and to reduce risk. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this protection. Unfortunately, politics can, by trying its very best to support its industry, destroy it without even realizing what's happening. This has happened before, and there is a large risk that it's happening today in the largest automotive producing countries, like Germany, Japan, and the
