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

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

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

Bank of America Merrill Lynch: UK Tesla Model 3 & Other EV 3-Year Total Cost of Ownership Analysis Shows EVs Much Cheaper than Fossil Competitors

December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We've published numerous analyses of our own on the total cost of ownership of the Tesla Model 3 and Volkswagen ID.3 compared to top gasoline competitors.
