Welcome of the ID 3 in the fleet – November 24, 2021

As electric cars quietly but inexorably slide into the mainstream, the Volkswagen ID 3 may well become the car that defines the hatchback family class in the new era, in the same way that the ubiquitous Volkswagen Golf did during a good part of my life.

You can get an ID 3 with a smaller or larger battery, the latter promising a range of up to 340 miles. My mid-ranger can officially cover 260 miles between charges in the wagon version I chose – still a very respectable figure.
