2024 VW ID.3 R Confirmed

2024 VW ID.3 R  – Volkswagen will not stop its push for electric cars with a version that caters specifically to people who drive fast. In September 2013, reports of an ID.3R surfaced. This suggests there could be a hybrid ID.3 R that is high-performance and range-topping. VW proved that an electric car can be made fast through the record-breaking ID.R racecar. As you might expect, the ID.3R bridges the gap between an electric race car and its passenger-hauling counterparts.

2024 VW ID.3 R Rumors

Another thing you can expect from the ID.3R is the GTX badge. These letters are reserved only for high-performance ID ranges. VW however keeps them away from ID cars with two motors and an all-wheel-drivetrain layout. This is the U.S.-bound ID. Frank Welsch (VW’s chief development officer) stated that an all-wheel-drive ID.3 option was possible. In an interview with Autocar, this was confirmed. In the initial-generation hatchback model, this option will not be available.
