These VW ID.3 specifications for the U.K. were made available after order books opened:


The electric hatchback will eventually be offered with three battery capacities and two power outputs, but it will be launched with just a special First Edition model. This will use the mid-size 'Pro' 58kWh battery for a claimed range of 260 miles. It will offer 201bhp driven through the rear wheels, 229lb ft of torque and a top speed of 99mph. The car can be charged through a 100kW DC connection or a 11kW AC system.

The mid-size Pro battery will eventually be offered with two power outputs, with a lower 143bhp version that will be aorund two seconds slower to reach 0-62mph.

The 45kWh Pure battery will be offered with outputs of 125bhp and 148bhp, while the largest 77kWh Pro S battery will use the 201bhp motor. Because of the extra weight of the battery, the Pro S model will only be offered with a four-seat layout.

In Germany, the ID 3 First will be offered in three trim levels: basic, Plus and Max - although only the mid-level version will intially be offered in the UK.

The ID 3 First cars offered in the UK will feature 19-inch alloy wheels, 30-colour ambient lighting, heated seat and steering wheel, and matrix LED front and LED rear headlights. The First models will featre an Exterior Style Silver pack featuring a silver roofline and grey sills and bumpers.

The UK-bound models will also come with a rear-view camera as standard, along with automatic cruise control, rear privacy glass and an anti-theft alarm. Notably, the mid-level ID 3 First models that will be offered in the UK at launch don't come with the top-level cockpit infotainment system that includes the head-up display. That means the only software upgrade UK buyers will require will be to add the full App Connect features.

In continental Europe, buyers of the first cars to be delivered will be given membership of a 'First Movers' club, which will include the eventual software update, with those leasing cars not paying any rates for the first three months. It is not yet known whether any of these initiatives will be offered to UK buyers.
