The Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition has a 62 kWh battery pack, allowing it to travel up to 227 mi on a single charge. The car has an average efficiency of 25.6 kWh per 100 miles (or 256 Wh/mile) — ranked №394 out of 667 electric vehicles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How powerful is it? How fast does it accelerate?

The Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition is equipped with a powertrain that delivers up to 150 kW (201 hp) of power and 229 lb-ft of torque.

This enables a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 7 seconds (ranked №397 out of 667 electric vehicles) and a top speed of 99 mph.

How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range?

Real-world range of the Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition is 204–250 miles (ranked №394 out of 667 electric vehicles) — depending on several factors, including:

  • Speed: Higher speeds deplete the battery faster.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold and hot weather impacts range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous terrain reduces range.
  • Driving style: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Use of features: Features like climate control and media system also affect range.

It's important to remember that these are just estimates, and your actual range may vary. It's always best to factor in these various factors when planning your trip and be prepared for potential charging stops.

Plan your trips using the EV Navigation interactive map.

What charging options are available? How long does it take to charge it?

The Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition in the USA comes with a CCS Type 2 charging port. It can be charged at home using a standard domestic socket or at any public AC charging station with the compatible cable. It's important to note that the car's on-board charger (inverter) limits the maximum AC charging rate to 11 kW, resulting in approximately 39 miles of range added per hour of charging.

For significantly faster charging, public DC fast-charging stations are available. Although the car can achieve a maximum DC charging rate of 100 kW, factors such as battery temperature and charge level may affect the actual charging speed.
