But is this the case? The mid-size all-electric hatchback from Volkswagen, It differs aesthetically and functionally from its thermal sibling. Having had the VW ID.3 Pro Performance at our disposal for a week, we identify the elements that differentiate it, as well as the similarities. 

The philosophy of sustainability

Volkswagen unveiled a range of ID.Series electric prototypes at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The first fruit of the massive project is the futuristic ID.3 which was unveiled in 2019 in Frankfurt and is based on the advanced MEB platform. In March 2023 the German company stepped in with a subtle refresh. Both the ID.3 and the entire ID.Series electric range encompass the modern philosophy of sustainability.

The front is oval, featuring a "cute, smiling face". In place of the grille, a thin horizontal LED strip joins the beautiful and modern matrix LED lights, showing that it has travelled from the future, while the chunky bumper leaves a note of dynamism.

The profile is in stark contrast to the front set. Straight lines, sharp edges, and muscular surfaces make up a modern and easily recognisable silhouette. The high body height contributes to increased practicality. But the most distinctive feature is the large and vertical glass surfaces!

The rear is the most distinctive part of the car, the laminated exterior fifth door in black integrates the slim horizontal lights with Led graphics, forming a beautiful visual effect. The bumper has a low loading threshold, emphasizing practicality, and the large roof spoiler completes the look of a car that wishes to become the symbol of transition for the VW Group!

In particular, foam and sustainable and recyclable materials with good tactile feel have been used as the base, such as the steering wheel made of "vegan" leather and the door panels with the seats have been made of "Artvelour" microfibre material made of 71% recycled plastic waste. Their assembly is in keeping with VW's name and reputation, leaving a beautiful feel.

Genuine Volkswagen

Its eccentric appearance and the bodywork reminiscent of an all-rounder may do it a disservice, because they don't reveal its driving qualities, nor do they raise expectations about its road behaviour. However, it is imperative to move from theory to practice to experience it in every possible condition and see if it confirms or surprises us.

General in road handling is reminiscent of the Volkswagen thermals. It doesn't excite, but it does create a feeling of safety. It's essentially an electric ride-on car. With three driving profiles, ECO, Normal and Sport. The driver is subtly aware of rear-wheel drive, in all conditions, creating a pleasant feeling. Since the ECO and Normal modes are a bit "cold", the driving option in Sport is a one-way street! The average combined consumption is 14 kWh.

Conclusion
The VW ID.3 is here to stay in the automotive pantheon. It is Volkswagen's first serious offering in the mass-produced all-electric car segment. The road manners are commensurate with the Volkswagen name, it has plenty of space worthy of an MPV. It is deliberately differentiated from the Golf, not to be the electric alternative, but to establish itself as a stand-alone pure electric proposition. Of course we left for last the innovative futuristic design, which becomes the springboard to establish itself as a symbol of the energy transition, trying to wrest the passport to the "Future Classic electric cars".
