  • First customers receive ID.3 1st Edition cars in Volkswagen UK's grand handover event




    • Four years after I.D. concept, ID.3 arrives with UK customers
    • Hotly anticipated, limited-run ID.3 1ST Editions are now with owners
    • ID.3 is delivered completely carbon neutral, as certified by TÜV Nord


    Volkswagen has celebrated a significant milestone, as handovers of the ID.3 1ST Edition have commenced. The first limited-edition cars were handed over to British customers on Friday evening. The ID.3 introduces the brand’s third era, and democratises electric mobility after the original Beetle – the People’s Car, which took mobility to the masses – and the Golf, which brought innovation and luxury to the motoring public.


    At Volkswagen retailers up and down the country, deliveries of the revolutionary ID.3 1ST Edition commenced on Friday evening, with the first customers collecting their cars. The Grand Handover event saw these initial cars handed over to early adopters of the ID.3, who had been on the waiting list to receive a 1ST Edition car.

    The model was previewed in 2016 as a visionary electric concept intended to go sale this year. The production car stays true to the roots of the concept, delivering the promises of long ranges, technological innovations, intelligent connectivity and an engaging drive.

    The ID.3 is produced in Volkswagen’s Zwickau plant in the east of Germany. The Zwickau factory is entirely powered by renewable energy, with many third-parties in the supply chain also using green energy. Where carbon emissions are unavoidable, for example during shipping, CO2 emissions are compensated by supporting internationally recognised climate protection projects. As a result the ID.3 is delivered as a carbon neutral product according to the TÜV Nord Standard TN-CC 020. The ID.3’s low environmental impact can be continued into the car’s working life, should owners choose to charge it using renewable energy.

    A comprehensive equipment package includes heated front seats, Natural Voice Control with ID. Light, navigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Keyless entry and start, IQ. Light LED matrix headlights with Welcome Light function, a bi-colour exterior and striking 19-inch wheels.

    The model also brings with it new safety features including the brand’s first central airbag, which prevents occupants colliding with one another in the event of a side-impact, as well as the acclaimed Car2X system, with which the ID.3 can communicate information, including advance warning of hazards, to other Car2X-equipped vehicles in the vicinity.

    Thanks to the packaging benefits of the MEB (modular electric drive matrix) platform, the ID.3 boasts a wide range of talents, including the turning circle and agility of the up! city car, the compact footprint of a Golf, with similar interior space to the Passat and off-the-line acceleration comparable to a Golf GTI. With a modular battery pack design, the ID.3 series model will be available in the near future with multiple battery capacities, to suit a variety of range requirements. The 58 kWh, 204 PS ID.3 1ST boasts a 260-mile range, with rapid charging capability of up to 100 kW – this means that 180 miles of range can be added in as little as half an hour.

    Andrew Savvas, Volkswagen UK Managing Director, was at Volkswagen Cambridge for its Grand Handover event on Friday and said: “I am incredibly proud to witness this moment. Volkswagen has made a commitment to our future, and our children’s future. In 2018 we were the first car maker to sign up to the Paris Agreement on CO2, while last year we announced our new environmental mission statement ‘goTozero’ the aim of which is to achieve a neutral CO2 balance by 2050. We intend to be the world market leader in e-mobility, and to achieve this we are investing €33 billion by 2024, including €11 billion for the Volkswagen brand alone.

    “Today we are seeing the first UK customers drive away in the ID.3 1ST Edition, the first Volkswagen Group product on the new MEB platform. This is a significant moment, and the start of a massive shift. Some of my colleagues were there for this moment in 1974 when the first Golfs were delivered in the UK, and over 35 million have been sold since. Today I feel a sense of genuine excitement. The MEB platform will underpin numerous products across the Group in the coming months and years. In fact, only next week we unveil the ID.4,
    Volkswagen’s first electric SUV, which will be sold globally. By 2029 the Group aims to sell 20 million vehicles based on the MEB platform. Today is just the beginning and I can’t wait to see these ID.3s out on UK roads.”

    Ok, an update.

    The factory reset did not solve the problem.

    So I made an appointment with the dealer and took the car in today.

    Retom, I don't have any brake warning lights yet, brakes work fine and no squeeky noises yet. The only error on the dash is the 'Parking brake fault'.

    Re: Brake Pad Warning - Costs?

    If you have the warning brake light do not delay the replacement too long. Usually it should be done within max. 300-500 miles.
