ID.3 wins TWO awards!

The Volkswagen ID.3 has won two major awards in less than a week, including Carbuyer’s ‘Best Family Electric Car’ and ‘Game Changer of the Year’ by TopGear.com, in recognition of its importance in the switchover to electric vehicles. 

TopGear.com judges praised the ID.3’s ease of use and classy styling, as well as its overall appeal as a package. The ID.3 fulfills the brief set out by the 2016 I.D. concept, offering long ranges, technological innovations, intelligent connectivity, and an engaging drive, with an affordable entry-level price of £29,990 for the ID.3 Life – the current entry-level variant.

At Carbuyer, the judges commended the ID.3’s interior space, comfort, and different available specifications and ranges, with its diverse line-up of eight equipment and quality-packed variants bolstering the model’s appeal to customers. Ease of use was high on the list of accolades praised by Carbuyer too, as were the ID.3’s mass-market intentions and breadth of appeal – attributes that have been praised time and again by the media.

Richard Ingram, Editor of Carbuyer.co.uk, said: "The Volkswagen ID.3 is the closest we've come to zero-emission motoring for the masses. It's spacious, good to drive and so easy to live with – whether you're new to EVs or a hardened electric car convert. Furthermore, with a wide range of batteries and specs to choose from, there's an ID.3 for everyone. Congratulations to Volkswagen on a well-deserved win."

The model is available in a variety of well-equipped variants, with all ID.3s featuring Car2X technology, ID. Light car-to-driver light communication system, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), a 10-inch Discover Navigation Pro capacitive touch-screen navigation infotainment system, and a vast array of comfort and convenience features.

Jack Rix, Editor of TopGear.com, said: “The ID.3 doesn’t dazzle you with experimental technology or shout about the fact that it runs on batteries instead of fuel, it’s just a practical, well-engineered family hatchback that happens to be an electric car.

“When you combine the scale of Volkswagen’s ambitions with how competent the ID.3 is, it’s an ominous sign for other manufacturers. The world’s biggest carmaker has gone all-in on electricity, and it’s done it well. And that’s got to be good news for all drivers out there looking to cushion their transition to an electric future.”

The ID.3 is no stranger to accolades, having been given Carwow’s ‘Most Wanted’ Award for creating the biggest buzz on the publication’s website some months before its official launch, and being named GQ’s Best Family Car at the 2020 GQ Car Awards, with the judging panel of the latter describing the model as the ‘Electric People’s Car’.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
