The fact that the German brand's new electric auto will be called the ID.3 then is hugely significant. Indeed, the goal is more than 100,000 vehicles being delivered per year. The compact hatch is not destined for the USA, and VW will instead launch its ID electric-car banner with the ID Crozz production model.

The 261-mile battery utilised in the ID 3 First will be the middle of three battery sizes offered in the ID 3 range, which Volkswagen believes will be the most popular. A total of three battery options will eventually be on the menu, ranging from 205 to 342 miles in the WLTP cycle - those will be the short- and long-range models.

Stackmann said that the ID 3 represented a "major milestone" for Volkswagen, adding: "The world is now in a process of transformation". That'll be priced at under 30,000 euro ($33,650) before any subsidies or incentives. The medium size battery pack option has a capacity of 58kWh which provides 420 km of range. Probably the biggest difference between the I.D. and ID.3 would have to be the new lower air intake, traditional door handles, and side mirrors.

This includes satellite navigation with voice control as standard, LED matrix headlights and two-tone paint with a contrast roof colour.

While Europe prepares for the ID 3 hatchback, North America will miss out.

Those willing to show some patience will be rewarded with more affordable versions of VW's pioneering ID.3. As a bonus on top, buyers of the pre-order model can charge up to 2,000 kWh free of charge for one year at all public charging points connected to the Volkswagen charging app WeCharge as well as in the Europe-wide fast charging network Ionity. Deliveries, meanwhile, will begin from mid-2020, VW says.

And sometimes more. "A couple of years ago, there was a little outbreak among the Somali community in the Twin Cities", she said. New York has been contending with two large outbreaks, one in Rockland County and one in the New York City borough of Brooklyn.

Pre-orders require a €1,000 ($1,118) deposit. Only 30,000 of the 1ST edition cars will be made.

Pre-booking an ID3 is available in 29 European markets, the most important of which are Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom and Austria.

Volkswagen is busy fleshing out its plans to launch a whole new range of electric cars, and things are officially kicking off with the compact hatchback you see here.

"With the start of pan-European prebooking for the ID.3, e-mobility at Volkswagen will become concrete for our customers", said Jürgen Stackmann, member of the board of management of the Volkswagen brand responsible for sales, marketing and after-sales.

The ID.3 will not be sold in the USA, but it kicks off a new family of electric models, all of which will wear the ID name paired with a number.
