58kWh v 62kWh

Post by alexbodinger » Fri Jun 04, 2021 12:17 pm

Hi,

I've looking at getting an ID.3 through an NHS lease scheme. They have 2 versions of the ID.3 -Life - Pro Performance. Both are 150kw but one has a 58kWh battery and the other has a 62kWh.

The 62kwh I'm told is the older model and it's on a special offer which means it's £15 a month cheaper. Seems like a no brainer - bigger battery and cheaper monthly payments. I just wondered why they brought out a model with a different battery so soon after it's launch.

If anyone is able to clarify this it'd be hugely appreciated.

Thanks,

Alex

As i understand it they are one and the same , the 58 value is just the usable amount of the 62 kw battery

Thanks. I've seen that somewhere else. Curious as to why they are listed as 2 different models with one being cheaper than the other.

There are 3 useable battery sizes: 45, 58, 77

The 58 useable is actually a 62 pack.
