Several things are of interest to me on the ID.3 - it looks like the inside door sills are quite low (maybe 30-40mm / 1 1/4-1 1/2"?), but I was hoping for flat ones, like in the Chevy Bolt EV.

I like the fact that the seat height appears to be 100-130mm / 4-5" higher than the e-Golf - this will help entry and exit ease.

I assume that the ID.3 coasts by default (like the e-Golf), and it has regen integrated on the brake pedal - does it have levels of regen selectable on the accelerator? Are they on the shifter, or on dash / software buttons, or on paddles on the steering wheel?

Does the ID.3 have a direct heating defroster? I hope it has the super-thin layer of silver version.

Does the ID.3 have a heated steering wheel, and/or a heated back seat?

Does the ID.3 have a totally flat underside? What is the Cd of the car?

What is the turning circle of the ID.3?

Can the ID.3 tow a trailer?

Does the ID.3 have a heat pump? If so, is it integrated with the motor / electronics / pack cooling and heating?
Sincerely, Neil
