The much-anticipated ID.3 is Volkswagen’s first ground-up full electric vehicle and, following the iconic Beetle and Golf, takes the company into its third generation of car-making.
ID.3 is the first car in the ID family, with other models expected in the coming years.
The car emerges with merit from Euro NCAP’s latest tests, with good results in all areas of assessment.
ID stands for “intelligent design, identity, and visionary technologies”.
When it comes to safety, this means that robust structural integrity and the latest in restraint technology are combined with high-tech sensors to offer excellent all-round protection for the car’s occupants and for other road-users.
Crash avoidance systems like AEB are standard, and post-crash safety is covered by a braking Multi-Collision Brake, a system that applies the brakes after a collision to prevent further impacts, and by an advanced e-Call system.
