Electric cars are experiencing a strong boom. After having started their journey as cars only destined for a few wealthy pockets, the cheap electric cars they gradually get closer to the rest of society.
One of these electric cars for the people (in a nod to the brand’s past) is the Volkswagen ID.3. We have climbed on it and we were able to see first-hand that the quality of the cabin is not as good as we would like. Volkswagen has responded and already promises an interior of the ID.3 with better finishes.
A Volkswagen ID.3 with an upgraded interior is on the way
The Volkswagen ID.3 must be given credit. The compact electric is a relatively cheap car with a price that already is approaching the barrier of 30,000 euros, but also that the quality of its interior has been conditioned to keep the price as low as possible. Lots of hard plastic to look at and touch.
The use of hard and smooth plastics, in addition to a rather spartan general configuration where the physical buttons are almost completely absent in favor of a screen they have earned a good handful of criticisms in those who expect something more elaborate from a car that we cannot yet classify as cheap.
This impact has permeated Volkswagen and, as they point out desde Handelsblatt, Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess was the one who urged the brand to trim where possible, including the interior of the car. To solve this, the Volkswagen management has reacted.
The house of Wolfsburg is going to introduce a series of changes in the cabin to make it more enjoyable. The most exposed areas such as the dashboard and doors will receive less bland materials, in addition to introducing more elaborate finishes.
At the moment it is not known when these changes will arrive, nor if it will be applicable to its SUV cousin, the Volkswagen ID.4. What is likely is that if this information is confirmed it will also affect the finishes of the brand’s future electric cars. We have contacted the brand but for now we have no confirmation from Volkswagen.
Electric cars are a new technology, and they are a technology that still has a long way to go to pay for itself. Batteries are expensive and that forces car manufacturers to tighten their belts in other areas. These cuts can be viewed with rejection by customers and in this case can be have forced a premature restyling of the ID.3 which, in addition, could be accompanied by a new 170 kW charger.
