It has been four weeks since Volkswagen started accepting pre-orders for the limited ID.3 1ST, and the company has now decided to open the ordering system to the public next Monday, July 20, 2020.
Seven pre-configured ID.3 models will be made available at various dealerships all across Europe, along with the appropriate charging equipment. All seven models will be eligible for the maximum state subsidy of €9,480 (Php 535,999) granted as an environmental bonus in Germany. Subsidies will also be available for the ID.3 in many other European countries.
“We are overwhelmed by the loyalty shown by so many pre-bookers. A large majority of these customers have already ordered their 1ST from dealers. Other customers, who have had to wait for the start of production sales, will now be able to order. From July 20, they can choose between seven preconfigured ID.3 models with the most popular features at their dealerships,” shares Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales.
"I am convinced that e-mobility will now make its breakthrough,” added Stackmann. "Our model names like Family, Style, Tech and Tour already reveal that we will have the right ID.3 for everyone – at an attractive price. This way, we are realizing our vision of enabling emission free mobility for all.”
Six out of seven models are based on the basic model ID.3 ProPerformance. With a 58-kWh battery, it has a range of up to 420 km on a single charge with the 150 kW Performance rear-wheel-drive system.
