Here’s the electric Volkswagen ID.3 stripped of camouflage

Thanks to photoshop wizardy, we can have a look at VW’s finished EV early

VW says over 15,000 people have already pre-ordered its new electric car, the ID.3, which will launch VW’s all-electric ID brand. Every single one of them has done so having only seen the finished car in disguised, camouflaged-up fancy dress.

So, perhaps they, and you, would like to see what the final car is pretty much going to look like. Well, here you go.

VW released a pair of images of the ID.3 in blue’n’red stripes to ramp up anticipation for the car’s imminent reveal, but details like the lights and wheels were left uncovered. So, thanks to some careful digital de-striping thanks to the skills of Andrei Avarvarii, here’s what the de-stickered version should look like.

As TG’s Paul Horrell has already driven the ID.3 and grilled its engineers, we know quite a lot more besides how this aero-honed five-door box will look. Expect the base model to have a 200-mile range, and a top-spec car to shoot for over 300 miles. It’ll cost equivalent money to a diesel VW Golf (there’s a new version of that coming later in 2019 too, don’t forget) and it’ll be roomier inside. The top speed is limited to 100mph. An 80 per cent recharge will take 30 mins. 

There’s lots more nuggets like that in Paul’s full report on the ID.3 here. Tuck in.

Now you’ve seen it, could you see yourself joining the pre-order queue?
