The Interior Of The Upcoming VW ID.3 Looks Very Interesting

A handful of images showing the interior of the upcoming VW ID.3 have surfaced online.

These images were taken from a YouTube recently shared online by the German car manufacturer. While the video was swiftly taken down, various media outlets were able to screenshot the key details revealed during the short video.

Starting with the dashboard of the ID.3, we can see that it includes a large touchscreen infotainment system. It looks all rather normal until you glance over to the steering wheel where Volkswagen has developed a small digital gauge cluster directly behind the wheel, or potentially even attached to the steering column.

We can see a small screen which displays things including speed, range, navigation, and a radar cruise control system. To the side of this central display is a unique gear selector which allows drivers to cycle through Park, Neutral, Reverse, Drive, and what appears to be a brake regeneration mode. It is somewhat similar in design to the steering-column-mounted gear selector of the BMW i3.

This is the second time a video previewing the ID.3 has seemingly been published prematurely and swiftly deleted in recent months. The world had its first glimpse of the vehicle’s exterior design bathed in pink and purple camouflage when a revealing video found its way online back in May.

Volkswagen will unveil the ID.3 in production guise at September’s Frankfurt Auto Show, free of any exterior or interior camouflage. The electric hatchback will be sold in a number of different guises, including a range-topping model with a 77 kWh battery pack and a range of 342 miles (550 km).

    Nice, it would be cool if that screen that displays the instruments can fold down like the 720s. Sometimes, I don’t want to stare at MORE screens….the road is just fine.

      On point, This should be standard imo.

    ill admit, i think it looks very good. it looks simplistic, in a very good way. and nice to see the nav screen is not annoyingly high up on the dash like many current car manufactures have. i dislike the tack on nav screen look like Mazda has, some Fords, Hyundai and others.

      Anything inside the car = interior.

        Right. Good point. Still, if I offer you to show you the interior of my house and give you a seven pictures of a bulb (which is inside = interior), what would that say about my offer?

        • Matt

          Not the same thing. These images are showing literally half of the dashboard (top half) which is a lot to see on a car still technically under wraps.

    • McFly

      Isn’t the reason it doesn’t look annoyingly high up on the dash that the instrument cluster next to it is placed annoyingly high?

      And judging by how the instrument cluster/screen is jammed between the steering wheel and a recession in the dash in the El-Born interior (ha!) pics, I feel we have TWO tacked-on screens in these cars. 🙂

    If I’m seeing this right, it appears the shifter requires a twist motion to engage Drive or Reverse with pushbutton park? Do we really need yet another gimmicky way to do something so basic?

    • GlobalPostitpad

      From experience I say it works fine in the BMW i3. It just looks like a more aesthetically pleasing i3 dashboard(Eucalyptus wood excluded)

      • Rocket

        You know what else works fine? A plain old mechanical shifter.

        • GlobalPostitpad

          A conventional gear shifter is heavier and this is delivered as part of the dashboard so simplifies construction. I see only benefits to this.

          • Enter Ranting

            I see no benefits to driving a Volkswagen.

  • Dude

    Ugh it has an i3 style shifter
