Bjørn Nyland Checks Entry-Level Volkswagen ID.3 Pure's Range

–>

This version has a WLTP range of about 330 km (205 miles) and the test at 90 km/h (56 mph) reveals that it's possible, even in windy conditions. The result was 316 km (196 miles), while the energy consumption was 137 Wh/km (220 Wh/mile).

At a higher speed of 120 km/h (75 mph), the range decreases to 219 km (136 miles).

Bjørn Nyland's range test runs until 0%, 0 km, ---, or equivalent appear on the display as he does not expect that regular drivers would go beyond "zero". The cars still have some reserve at that point.

In both cases, the ID.3 has more range and better efficiency than several PSA models, based on the multi-energy e-CMP platform, which has up to about 50 kWh battery. The range difference at 90 km/h (56 mph) appears to be within 5-10%.
