What exactly are the costs of owning an electric car, find out in this post.
Volkswagen have introduced the new ID.3 which is now available to order and test drive from Pulman Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen ID.3 runs on zero emissions meaning you’ll be leaving a sustainable carbon footprint wherever you travel!
Electric Range & Charging
The question everyone likes to know, how many miles will I be able to travel in the ID.3 before I need to charge? Well there’s three battery sizes available on the ID.3 which offer the following:
· Up to 205 miles* - 45 kWh small battery
· Up to 260 miles* - 58 kWh medium battery
· Up to 336 miles* - 77 kWh large battery
When you compare the miles with an average weekly commute, they all offer more than enough with a few extra trips each week too (maybe your food shopping).
If you’re travelling a longer distance for a family holiday or business trip, you’ll not need to worry about running out of electric miles. There are a number of rapid chargers based in service stations across the UK which means when you stop off for a coffee and food break, you can charge the ID.3 to 80% electric range in just 30 minutes.
If you’re concerned about where your nearest charging points are (trust us there’ll be many close by), visit Zap-Map.
If you have a home wall box installed it will cost you around £3 to fully charge your ID.3. Compare that with how much you spend on filling your petrol/diesel tanks and there’ll be huge savings made across the year!
The ID.3 1st Edition
The ID.3 1st Edition is now available to order and test drive from Pulman. The 1st Edition offers an electric range of up to 260 miles in accordance with WLTP* as this trim is built with the medium-sized battery (58 kWh).
As standard with this trim you can expect Voice Control, Standard Navigation, LED Matrix Headlights and a contrast colour roof as well as countless colour designs on your dash and infotainment system (you’re in control of this in your display settings).
