Inside Volkswagen ' s all - electric ID . 3 . A taste of what's to come with the ID .4. It's important to note (once again) that the ID . 3 is not coming to the United States (boo). But, the layout we're seeing in this car will more than likely end up in the ID .4. Or at least a very close variant of it will show up stateside.

VW ' s first "real" electric car ID . 3 is gaining popularity and now we get to see what it looks like inside . Let' s talk about it as I take your questions and

While the exterior of a car is important (no one wants to drive an ugly car), the interior is where you spend most of your time. While the powertrain (electric) and design (a smoother Golf) of the ID.3 are what people initially think of when they see the car, that brand new infotainment system and layout are worth a look. So I went and looked at it.

It's important to note (once again) that the ID.3 is not coming to the United States (boo). But, the layout we're seeing in this car will more than likely end up in the ID.4. Or at least a very close variant of it will show up stateside. Either way, Volkswagen has produced a clean, easy to use and more importantly, easy to understand system that should offer up what people care about the most while driving.

Shell's first electric vehicle fast charger lands in Singapore

Shell's first electric vehicle fast charger lands in Singapore Royal Dutch Shell, the energy giant known for its fossil fuel production and hundreds of Shell gas stations, is creeping into the electric vehicle-power business. The company's first DC fast charger launched Monday at a Shell gas station in Singapore. Greenlots, an EV charging startup acquired by Shell in January, installed the charger. This is the first of 10 DC fast chargers that Greenlots plans to bring to Shell service stations in Singapore over the next several months. The decision to target Singapore is part of Greenlots' broader strategy to provide EV charging solutions across all applications throughout Asia and North America, the company said.

When you sit down in the ID.3, its infotainment system exudes clean design. Most of that has to do with the white background and floating displays. The center display is a 10-inch touchscreen that floats above the dashboard.

Two home screens contain the features users will use most while a third has a tablet-like layout of all the options available. Navigation was mostly quick with very little latency. There were a few moments when the system didn't respond to taps or swipes. Chances are that's more of an issue with it being pre-production than anything.

Under the display are simple climate controls with touch-sensitive buttons. Users can tap to raise or lower the temperature or tap and hold and move their finger left or right to adjust the heat or cooling. There are tiny ridges at the end of the "buttons" so that should help when you want to cool the car down without having to take your eyes off the road.

More robust controls are in the touch display. But in addition to the usual hot, cold, fan speed etcetera, Volkswagen added more conversational-type controls like "cool feet" or "warm hands." It's a nice touch and shows that automakers are closer to understanding how actual humans think.

To that effect, the automaker is also adding a voice assistant. The "Hey ID" wake word offers up access to navigation, climate control, media and other features. Two mics in the ceiling of the car help the system determine who is talking so if the passenger says they're too hot, it'll only adjust their temperature.

One interesting aspect that's not on other cars is the ID Light which is essentially an LED strip that's positioned right below the windshield. It can help with navigation by telling you when to turn, give you charging status and flash red when you need to apply the brakes. As drivers get used to it, I can see it being a useful way to share simple (but sometimes vital) information without the driver taking their eyes off the road.

VOLKSWAGEN ELECTRIC CONCEPT VEHICLES We’re very plugged in. Concept vehicle shown. Huge buzz is already surrounding the four highly anticipated Volkswagen electric concept vehicles: ID CROZZ Concept, expected to hit dealerships by the end of 2020, will excite all your electrons .

With the muscle of the world' s largest car-maker behind it, the Volkswagen ID 3 could be the biggest thing to happen to the electric car yet. Based on an all

Meanwhile, behind the actual wheel, Volkswagen is using touch-sensitive buttons on the steering wheel for ADAS and media controls. With the controls on the right, you can adjust the view of the dash cluster. Swiping left and right toggles between either navigation, speed or ADAS being enlarged. While the speedometer is always visible, ADAS and navigation can be swiped away.

On the left side of the steering wheel, driving modes can be selected with a quick swipe. As someone that changes driving modes quite a lot while cruising around, this is a far better solution than a button in the center console or on the dash.

While the touch-sensitive controls are cool in theory, it'll be interesting to try them out on the road. Without any real physical feedback from your actions on the steering wheel, it might not be as innovative as VW hopes it will be.

Overall though, the interior of the ID.3 is quite spacious for a car its size and I had no trouble fitting into the back seat while others were in the front. Like the display, it feels light and airy in the car and presents itself interior-wise as a larger vehicle.

Again, it's important to point out that we will not be getting this car in the US. But it's the first MEB platform vehicle from Volkswagen and what happens here will permeate the rest of the coming line up. But for now, we'll wait for the ID.4 which should be available in the US in 2020.

Opel's Corsa-e is an alternative to VW's ID.3 EV.
Not one to let fellow German automaker Volkswagen steal the spotlight, Opel took to the IAA Frankfurt International Motor Show to announce its first EV, the Corsa-e. We've known about the existence of this vehicle since May, but on Tuesday the automaker finally detailed what consumers can expect from the Corsa-e. Instead of designing an entirely new chassis, Opel adopted its popular supermini model, which the automaker first introduced way back in 1982, to create its first EV. The new car features a 50kWh battery with 100kW output, which translates to about 136 horsepower in traditional gasoline terms.
