The ID.3 you see here is an electric hatchback that won't be coming to the U.S. market, but it nonetheless has big implications for VW's plan to build out an entire family of EVs that it will start selling here within the next few years. The first of these to arrive in the U.S. will be a mechanically similar but larger electric crossover based on the I.D. Crozz concept, and the long-anticipated revival of the Microbus will follow after that.

We thought it was pretty weird when Volkswagen touted the expressive "eyes" of the first ID concept. Now the bizarre, humanoid winking function is found on the production car. The LED headlights flutter in an impersonation of a wink or a blink when the driver approaches the parked ID.3.

VW says the chunky C-pillar is meant to be evocative of the Golf. Otherwise, the ID.3’s proportions are noticeably taller and more upright, with short front and rear overhangs and large wheels. It is about the same size of the Golf but is said to offer considerably more interior room due to the packaging advantages of the MeB electric platform.

The Volkswagen ID 3 bowed on Monday ahead of its formal debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Consider this the Beetle or Golf for the 21st century VW said in its announcement that it will bring the ID 3 into the world with the ID 3 First Edition in three flavors: the basic ID 3 1st, 1st Plus and 1st Max.

Multiple battery options will be offered, with a 45.0-kWh option having 205 miles of range and a 77.0-kWh battery providing 342 miles. Keep in mind that these range numbers are on the European WLTP cycle, which is conducted differently than the EPA range. These battery sizes will likely translate to the first U.S.-bound ID crossover that will arrive in 2020. In the meantime, the ID.3 starts at under $33,000 in Europe and orders are open now.

VW Rolls Out I.D. Space Vizzion Concept ahead of Aggressive Electric-Vehicle Launch .
Volkswagen's seventh in a series of EV concepts is an electrified wagon promising 300 miles of range. The 22-inch wheels and touch-sensitive areas to actuate the doors will no doubt be dialed back for production, but the augmented-reality head-up display that replaces the traditional gauge cluster as the driver's primary source of information is intended for production, and the Space Vizzion's large 15.6-inch center screen seems likely to do the same.
