We have separated our Volkswagen ID.3 GTX article into sections. If you want to wait to read the full article, click the links below to the different areas. We also have an overview of the full specifications, an image gallery, detailed information about charging performance, and some online reviews. Our sections:

Performance

The Volkswagen ID.3 GTX has a maximum power of 210 KW (286 hp/282 bhp) and a total torque of 545 nm (402 ft-lb). It can sprint from 0 to 100km/h (0 to 62mph) in 6 seconds and has a top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph).

Battery, range, and charging

The battery has a gross capacity of 82kWh and a net capacity of 79kWh, meaning you have a 3kWh buffer for protection. (3.7%).

The WLTP range is 600 km (373 mi). The consumption is 13.2kWh/100km for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The maximum DC charging speed is 175kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 64 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 35 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 2% to 43%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 102kW. Each charge session would take 19 minutes and 4 seconds.

For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 21kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 38 minutes. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 2% to 44%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 78 minutes.

Onboard charger

For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 7 hours and 10 minutes.
