Closer look at Volkswagen's ID.3 Golf-sized electric hatch

VW Crozz

Initially, a special First Edition will be offered with a WLTP range of 261 miles, cost less than €40,000 ($44,800) and will be limited to 30,000 cars.

Every member of this new model family will bear the ID name, which VW says "represents a new, independent series of products in the brand portfolio".

Of course, VW did not reveal completely uncamouflaged images of the ID.3 but instead showed it with a stomach-upsetting vinyl wrap in a moire pattern resembling a malfunctioning cathode-ray tube television.

Finally, there'll be the ID.3 1ST Max.

At least 70 migrants drown off coast of Tunisia after boat capsizes
At least 50 people died in the incident, with 16 survivors, the UN's International Organization for Migration says. She said the migrants included people from Bangladesh and Morocco, among other nationalities.

Volkswagen opened up pre-booking for the upcoming ID.3 electric hatchback on Wednesday. For example, there'll be voice control and navigation, as standard. The basic model of the vehicle will include voice control and a navigation system, too, while the "ID.3 1st Plus" model will feature interior lighting and a two-tone exterior.

The ID 3 will come with built-in fast-charging technology, allowing for a maximum speed of 100-125kW DC charging. That gets a panoramic glass roof and an augmented reality head-up display. They have loyal customers in Europe (I'm originally from the UK), they can afford to position bost mass-market cars under the VW brand, as well as up-market models via Porsche and Audi using the same underlying technology, so plenty of synergies, and they're the only auto company who has taken building a charging network seriously, although in the USA that's all part of the diesel scandal payback.

Those who pre-order the ID 3 1st edition must provide a $1,123 deposit and will also gain access to no-cost charging at all public charging points connected to the Volkswagen charging app for one year.

The ID.3 will not be sold in the US, but it kicks off a new family of electric models, all of which will wear the ID name paired with a number. Volkswagen said production is expected to begin at the end of 2019, with deliveries starting in Europe around mid-2020. Volkswagen is working hard to eliminate the hitches. Talk of AR is pertinent - digital innovation is rife inside, and the interior is a step change from current Volkswagen cabins, according to those who've seen inside the electric vehicle.
