VW ID.3 - All New Electric MEB Platform




VW is going to reveal their all new ID.3 in September, and deliver them in 2020 to buyers in Europe. There are 3 battery pack capacities:

45kWh 330 km (205 miles) WLTP range
58kWh 420 km (261 miles) WLTP range
77kWh 550 km (342 miles) WLTP range





I hope that VW brings the ID.3 to the US, sooner rather than later!

VW says we will get the ID Crozz in 2020 and the Buzz in 2022. No word on if we will get the hatchback but I would guess no since VW is pulling the Golf from the US market.

I was looking for a thread where this would fit. This will do.

https://www.carscoops.com/2019/03/vw...rst-to-use-it/

VW has announced it is allowing other manufacturers to use its Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) architecture so that EVs can gain traction.
[snip]
The carmaker has already identified a company that wants to use the MEB architecture: Aachen-based e.Go Mobile AG, maker of the Life electric city car. The startup will be the world’s first external partner to use the electric platform. VW says a dedicated vehicle project is already being planned.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.GO_Mobile

They already make a postal delivery van. The Fridolin of the future.

The more I see the ID.3 the more I like it.

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?

Okay - this is big! The ID.3 has a Cd of 0.26! This is mentioned at about 36 minutes into this video:



It is in German, but has English subtitles.

He says 0.26 "but a precise figure has not been provided"--so I would take that with a grain of salt as yet.

Still chasing the 1947 Volkhart-Saggita then. It's been measured at 0.19—0.21.

I know, I know.... it's got more room inside.

Bit of a weird Kammback

I hope their prices are more tolerable than the per kWh price of the e-up ...


On the platform: the high rear "transaxle" isn't very forthcoming to a van spin-off
