The heat pump is still highlighted specifically as a recommended option on the configurator.

So does this mean VW will also be offering refunds for misleading people over the range of the ID.3 -


Here VW say you should expect a range of 300 - 420km, 189 - 265miles - roughly 75-110% of WLTP which is in line with other EVs on the market and experience of my friends with EVs.

To date my ID.3 has only managed 60% - 90% - driving either rural journeys or constant speed A road journeys - so the type of journeys VW highlight in the video.

Others have reported considerably better ranges.

So have I not only been sold an underperforming heat pump but also an underperforming ID.3?

Or are other ID.3s also experiencing ranges that are below the minimum of 189miles stated in this video?
