VW id.3 facelift render 2023-2.jpg

The first model in Volkswagen’s range of all-electric ID cars, the ID.3 was launched in 2019. The Golf-sized EV will receive a facelift in 2023 and VW has given us a glimpse as to how it’ll look when it arrives next spring.

The exterior already shows a new design of front bumper with more aggressive side air intakes plus a tweaked headlight signature and reshaped bonnet. The overall design of the ID.3 won’t change much, but we could see new alloy wheel designs and there’s a new rear bumper below a set of slightly altered rear lights.

Volkswagen says the new ID.3 is “equipped with the latest software generation, which improves system performance and is able to receive over-the-air updates”. It’s not clear if the new car will offer improved range and performance figures, although the revised exterior design should affect efficiency in some way.

The interior of the ID.3 will be reworked for 2023. “The new ID.3 demonstrates our commitment to quality, design and sustainability. The design has matured, and we’ve upgraded the materials used in the interior”, said Imelda Labbé, Volkswagen Marketing Board Member.

The current car’s 10-inch central infotainment touchscreen will be swapped out for a 12-inch screen with a new control system. VW says the latest infotainment technology is more convenient and straightforward for users. Features such as Travel Assist and Park Assist Plus will be made available as optional extras and judging by the teaser images, we can expect a new HUD display. The centre console will also be restyled and feature two cup holders.

Volkswagen produces the ID.3 at its Zwickau and Dresden plants in Germany, but with the updated model this will be expanded to its factory in Wolfsburg to cope with demand.

The updated ID.3 is available to order now in Germany in Life, Business, Style, Max and Tour guise. UK trim levels should build on the Life model - currently the only ID.3 on sale here.
