Volkswagen’s ID.3, a New head-to-toe


ID.3, for the first time, in a row, wants to be Volkswagen, and together with our customers, entering the new era of zero-emission mobility. It’s going to be a pure electrically driven vehicle with the exterior dimensions of a compact car (like Golf), but on the inside, a space that is otherwise only available in a sedan of a class can be found. Before there was an ID.3 is of the same importance as the Beetle at the time, and it is the Wave of the past 45 years. He, too, was the beginning of a new era.

CO2-neutral mobility

The goal is to have the user ID.3 allows a user to make CO2-neutral mobility, and to enjoy it. In that sense, he closes in on the mission, which the Volkswagen group is in a period of time, has been drawn up under the title of goTOzero. By 2050, it wants the whole group to have a CO2-neutral balance sheet, to be able to present, for the whole of the industrial activities. At 2023, it will only be the brand of Volkswagen, already a 9 billion euro has been invested in e-mobility. Over the next ten years, VW sales to more than 10 million pure electric car production and sales. It will, therefore, come as no surprise that a whopping twenty-electrified models on the schedule, only to Volkswagen’s so-so. Of course in such efforts, and the rest can follow. This is the reason why the group is now fully on renewable energy and also for a charging infrastructure establishment. ID.3, the first Volkswagen, which prides itself on a carbon-neutral balance over the whole of the supply chain. Also, in the battery production capacity, sustainability is assured. Both the production of the cells in the battery construction, as the parts of the plant of Zwickau, where are the other parts and the vehicle body can be made, and where the paint and the final assembly is to be secured, using only the energy from natural sources.

The Volkswagen plant in Saxony, it is the pilot’s ID.3, and since 2017-driven by the renewable energy produced by hydroelectric power plants. If CO2 emissions are to be one or the other reason, however, cannot be avoided, will be compensated by investments in climate protection projects. That’s the way to get the ID.3 is a CO2-neutral vehicle to be delivered to the customer. The use of solar energy and renewable energy sources, makes it possible to use the CO2-emissions related to the use of the ID.3 as far as possible to reduce or completely neutralize it.

ID. for Intelligent Driving

And that’s (eventually) be automated to drive with zero emission, is an intuitive service, and personalized in the field of networking. Thanks to the newly developed design of the DNA would be the ID.3 is immediately recognisable as a zero-emission vehicle. ID.3 has been designed for the future, “electricity”, and wants to make a more seamless aesthetic and a new design quality in the compact segment to introduce it to you. He is, for example, extensive use of led lighting in order to have the design stand out.

With the old Beetle, the iconic bus, and they (air-cooled) engines in the back stood up, Volkswagen is already well-known as a brand that is koelradiatoren in front obviated the need for. As a result, details such as the headlights, a lot more and more important. In the user ID.3 pull up the interactive matrixledkoplampen, with a light output of 750 lumens, and an automatic large-light with the Dynamic Light Assist will be the focus of attention. This latter system uses a camera on the windscreen, that, and the oncoming traffic is analysed. On the basis of these data, the main light is automatically switched on when the speed is 60 km/h and it is still running without any oncoming traffic to be blinded. That is, the illumination of the road, the road is strong in a good way, especially in the early morning and at night.

A honeycomb is a lightweight, extremely stable, and 100% sustainable, and Volkswagen wants to be, as it is a basic principle of the specially designed electric vehicles, has developed EIA-platform model. The glasses of the same boot is distinguished by its dark color. It extends across the entire width of the car.
