Comments

The ID.3 is a pure electric vehicle and no pollutants are emitted at the tailpipe. Accordingly, the car scores the maximum index of 10 in this part of the assessment.

Comments

The ID.3's energy efficiency is comfortably above Green NCAP's limit for maximum points in three of the four tests. Only in the cold ambient temperature test are some fractions of a point lost but, overall, the index is a near-perfect 9.6.

Comments

Because no greenhouse gases are emitted at the tailpipe of an all-electric vehicle, the ID.3 scores maximum points in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

VW's long-anticipated ID.3 went on to the market in late 2019. It is part of VW's drive towards electrification, with the ID.4 set to make an appearance later this year. At the moment, Green NCAP assesses vehicles only on what is emitted at the tailpipe so the ID.3 gets maximum points in two of the three areas of assessment - Clean Air and Greenhouse Gases - as emissions of these are zero. Energy efficiency is also extremely high and, overall, the car emerges comfortably with a maximum 5 star rating.
