VW launches ID3 Pure Performance with smaller battery and lower price


Volkswagen has expanded the ID3 line-up with a new Pure Performance variant, which uses a smaller 45kW battery.

It is priced from £30,815 (P11d) and offered in two trim levels: City and Style. Both models are eligible for the plug-in car grant.

The new battery provides a range of up to 217 miles (215 Style trim) and can add 137 miles of range from a 100kW rapid charger in 30 minutes.

The Pure Performance has a 150PS power output, enabling a 0-62mph acceleration time of 8.9 seconds. It joins the ID3's existing Pro, Pro Performance and Pro S powertrain options.

The ID3 City includes a 10-inch Discover Pro Navigation infotainment system and a Comfort Package including heated front seats and a heated steering wheel; rain-sensing wipers and an auto-dimming rear mirror; two rear USB-C ports; and door mirrors with electric adjustment and folding, with integrated projection lights.

The model is also fitted with LED headlights and tail lights, plus a 10-colour ambient lighting system, natural voice control and Wireless App Connect.

It also has Adaptive Cruise Control with Front Assist, Lane Assist and front and rear parking sensors.

The ID3 Style, priced from £34,915 (P11d), features 18-inch alloy wheels, IQ.Light LED matrix headlights, tinted windows and an illuminated light band between the headlights and Volkswagen logo.

It also has two-zone climate control, rear-view camera, keyless entry system and illumination for the door handles.

Joe Laurence, ID family product manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “The City and Style are an important milestone in the ID3’s life cycle, as they usher in the Pure Performance powertrain. Offering the best of both worlds with value and performance built-in, these two important new trim levels further significantly broaden the ID3’s appeal – an attribute regarded as one of the model’s key strengths by experts.”
