  • Not too keen about the white plastics and haptic/touch buttons. I wish they had stayed with some physical buttons for those. But, i like the exterior and the rest of the interior, and glad they’re aiming for the lower price.

  • I'd definitely go electric if it close to the price of a golf - I'm not too bothered about looks but the one thing I've always disliked is screens that are stuck on the front of the dash like you get in Mercs etc. It just looks like a last-minute botch up.

  • Volkswagen's attempt at innovation failed miserably at the design level. That interior is a down right eyesore and their exterior has already been laughably accomplished by GM, great work VW.

  • looks nice, apart from that hideous black hatch, and seems quite space efficient if they make a related model with the interior/luggage space of the Touran 2, the length of the Touran 1, as well as 1000km range i"ll get it and i"m not someone who planned getting an electric car at all

  • In the UK our government get billions each year from fuel duty on petrol and diesel. My petrol costs for my car are £1,100 a year, and a lot of that is tax. If I had a comparable EV like the ID.3 my recharge costs (at home) would be about £400 on the same mileage of 6,000 miles a year. There is only 5% tax on electricity. How will the UK government make up that tax loss over time? They can't put a much larger tax on electricity as there is no way to differentiate between household use and car use if you charge at home. I think they will massively increase the road fund licence from the £140 (typical), to about £500 a year.

  • Still way too expensive. A simple electric engine should never cost more than the ICE with so many complicated parts.

    • @Magnus Eriksson Yes, lighter, cheaper, durable and more efficient batteries are the way forward.

      Taoma HTaoma H3 gün önce
    • The batteries are a big part of the cost. When the prices of those come down enough it's gonna be cheaper than an ICE car and the real revolution will start.

      Magnus ErikssonMagnus Eriksson4 gün önce
    • Agree. But it is probably economies of scale. If they make more cars they can spread production overhead costs across a much larger sales base.

  • We don´t need another fancy toy for rich people, but a cheap car with good range. And this isn´t it. However, it was clear, because the batteries are simply too expensive. This is just a product resulting from the left-green fascism. Nothing that the normal people will drive.
