VW has elected to exclude the ID.3 from the US - pity, as there are few new small BEVs in this country, the Mini-E being a fun example.misterbleepy wrote:misterbleepy wrote:My iOn is 3 3/4 years old, and now has 25,551 miles on the clock, and is still serving us very well.
It's coping with the extra weight of a 4th passenger without a problem (a dog in the boot).
We just part-exchanged the iOn for a new VW ID.3.
It served us well for just over 8 years, during which we put just under 50,000 miles on it.
I plan on popping in occasionally - there's always a few interesting posts to read.
The ID.3 is nice, and seems very quick (we have the 200+hp version, with a 58Kwh battery).
Externally it is a similar size to our Renault Zoe (which has a 52Kwh battery), but it seems so much bigger inside.
Both cars are a lot of fun to drive (as was the iOn) but they are so much wider, and that's taking a little time to adjust to, especially on the narrow country lanes in this part of the world.
