Here it is:

I am very excited, the tour is officially a test drive. So: The boss is testing himself. I was told that this makes some colleagues from Volkswagen passenger cars nervous when I personally test the vehicle intensively for two weeks. Personally, I am very relaxed: the team around Thomas Ulbrich did a good job, ID.3 left a very good impression in all the test runs and received exceptional marks. This is going to be great!

The new Volkswagen ID.3 set its first autonomy record: the electric car traveled 531 km from the city of Zwickau, Germany, where it is produced, to Schaffhausen (Switzerland) on a single charge.

Officially, the model has autonomy of up to 420 kilometers (WLTP), but the brand has been surpassed by more than 100 kilometers - an increase of 26%.

Volkswagen Starts Deliveries Of ID.3 1ST.

The first unit of the limited edition 1ST (one of 30,000 rich-equipped 58 kWh version cars), was handed over by Volkswagen's Sales Director Jürgen Stackmann to a customer - Oliver Nicolai - at the Transparent Factory in Dresden, Germany.

Customer deliveries probably are starting already at other dealerships in Germany and possibly in other countries anytime soon now.

Meanwhile VW gets a lot of flak on the quality side:

Quote:
The criticisms AMUS has for the ID.3 are grouped into two categories — build quality and electronics.

-Hard plastics that are sensitive to dirt are built into the cockpit. The inside of the bonnet looks as if it was painted with the spray can

-the underside of the hood in the test vehicle is in primer gray, never having been painted to match the color of the car.

-the car does not meet VW’s usual high VW requirements for accuracy of fit of the body parts, minimal gaps, high quality materials and details

Summary:

Based on this testing report from AMUS, it seems safe to conclude the ID.3 is still a work in progress. Conventional wisdom says to never purchase a car during the first year of production and that applies equally to electric cars as well.

Euro NCAP’s Secretary General, Michiel van Ratingen:

Quote:
The ID.3 represents the direction of travel for the car industry in recent years.
The climate crisis means that we all must adapt to a cleaner future and electric cars will become the norm in the years to come. Euro NCAP will continue to ensure that saving the planet does not come at the cost of safety and I am glad to see that the ID.3 – the latest generation of the people’s car – does not compromise in this regard.
