“I’m hugely excited by VW’s attack on the more affordable pure EV segment and can’t wait to drive it. Ok, so the base one is likely to be £24k+, but that’s cheap for what it offers, and the iD3 promises to be a bit of a leap for affordable BEV. More than just an electric Golf. Promise.”

“The first electric car I drove was a VW Citystromer back in ‘98. I was very young. It's a shame VW then dropped the electric ball post 'diesel-gate', but they’re up and running with it again. Could this become the new ‘people's car’? VW need to nail the quality for that to happen. ”

Don’t expect any ID.3s to hit the used market for some time. The only cars which are likely to be available will be dealer demonstrators.

Used Models

With the deliveries of new ID.3s yet to start and a waiting list which stretches for months, there won’t be a market for used ID.3s for some time yet. The only cars that are likely to be on sale will either be dealer demonstrators or ID.3s which have been bought by speculators who think there is a profit to be made by selling above the list price to people who want to skip the queue.

Wait a couple of years though and the ID.3 should be as popular as a Golf on the second-hand market.
