Volkswagen chose to develop a separate electrical platform for the ID model family, which translates into exceptional interior space for fairly compact exterior dimensions as well as a very small turning circle. The design also clearly shows that the ID.3 is more than just an 'electric Golf'.
In some ways, though, VW has gone far - perhaps too far. The cockpit is minimalistic and completely digital, which means that even for common functions you have to tap the screen a few times. The interior design is futuristic, but VW apparently doesn't rate the visual and tactile quality requirements of its clientele as highly as it used to.
