I drove the Volkswagen ID.3 until it DIED!

On the lookout for your next car? Head to www.carwow.co.uk to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
Volkswagen’s new all-electric hatchback is here… And Mat’s taking it for a range test!
On the face of it, the ID.3 looks and sounds pretty impressive. Not only does it have a cool futuristic look, but you can get it with a 201hp electric motor, and up to 77kWh of battery capacity. That will do an impressive range of 342 miles, but it's the 260-mile-range model with a 58kWh battery that Mat's putting to the test here.
But could the stats be deceiving? Well, Mat’s putting this all-new EV to the test to see just how far he can go on a single charge! Not only that, but he’ll be sharing an all-new exclusive with you - finding out what happens when the battery’s fully depleted!
Do you think the ID.3 could be a suitable replacement for the petrol-powered Golf? It’s time to find out!

  • Hello

  • Since there is volume control on the streeing wheel the volume slider in the middle should of been for fan speed

  • Well I guess that's the problem with electric cars: they do solve problems, but not for everyone. Yet, we all should comply to this "new normal" and declare ICE dead. And pay big bucks for a car which does not necessarily suit our needs. I can't take a SEAT Mii or VW ID.3 into some roads I frequently visit with my 4x4, nor carry the amount of load I often do. I'm trying hard not to sound like a luddite, but fortunately 2030 is still a decent amount of time away. Plenty of time for the tech to evolve, and more different type of cars to enter the market.

  • When are legacy auto manufacturers realise that they can't spend 10 minutes on the infotainment system. We just got the car. It is an absolute pain to use. Something so simple as turning up the volume is frustrating or changing the temperature. The screen is slow and buggy. Sometimes you just have to turn it off and wait. Sometimes you need to factory reset it all together to make the bluetooth work. The lane keeping assist is super annoying, you can turn it off but the car doesn't remember your settings when you start it. So you have to do it again ever time. Im really hoping a decent update.

  • Typically all these ADAS systems (LKAS, LDW) etc. Are controlled by the fusion controller located behind the center mirror. Perhaps when you put your go pro camera on the cover you missed up the connector to the controller. Dropping the CAN connection and hence all the assisting systems dropped.

  • His OCD is actually very good for finding most flaws and issues with the car and build quality, haha. This car is nice and a hi-tech fest, but it's a shame it has so many bugs with the software and with the safety systems. Unacceptable for a brand like VW and for this price range. Hope they will get software updates over the air and fix all of them soon. This is the drawback if you hurry to buy first editions, maybe it's worth waiting more to have more mature and stable systems. Good and straight to the point review as usual!

  • Electric cars are the future? I don’t think so! Glitchy electronics, unresponsive cabin controls, unsafe eyes off the road basic cabin functions, range anxiety, lengthy charge time waits, and a golf buggy driving experience . Also cheap build quality to try and keep prices down because electric cars are expensive to make and will be for years to come. Surely there has got to be a better way? In the mean time until things rapidly improve?? Count me out! Hey! ID should I buy you? No! Son, save yourself a lot of stress and just buy a petrol powered VW Golf instead.
