Not sure if this has been shared before. A dual motor ID3 would be a lot of fun to drive. :twisted:

Their dates seem off - The ID3 was launched around Jul/Aug 2020, wasnt it? Unless Germany got it a year before other markets. I'm a bit pessimistic it'll get a mid life update as early as 2023 unless there are some significant cost savings for VW to make.

Not sure how much fun a GTX could be. It'll be a 2 ton tank, pretty quick in a straight line (although still pretty slow by mud/high spec Tesla M3 standards). It certainly won't be as nimble or chuckable as plenty of ICE hot hatches.

It's a moot point really, I've generally had hot hatches in the past, and they're so fast now, you've got 4 seconds of hard acceleration if you're already rolling before you're in license losing territory and the ride is so refined, there's not many thrills to be had. I got a Golf R in 2015, and it's was fast, but ultimately a bit sterile.

I think the ID3 launch was late 2019? But, a sportier looking version of the ID3 might be of interest to some. Dual motor would surely push it towards or beyond £40k (once you add on all of the tech it will have)? Anyway - I thought it was an interesting piece.

The article states "backlighting for the volume slider" was introduced in late 2021. Is that right?

Looks like discs on the rear too.

Might need stig or more0 to answer that. I thought I heard it mentioned in an article, but not on the dealer information sheet.

No change. Still unlit, but in practice it’s not a big deal.

I think most if not all new model VWs now have the same infotainment system setup with those unbacklit slider controls as part of the screen module - all ID models both existing and yet to be produced (incl 5 and Buzz) and the newer ICE models. It was only ever hopeful speculation that they would be removed for my22.5. I think basically people listed stuff they would like in 22.5 on forums and other people read that and misinterpreted it. Nothing from VW ever said they were going to change. They are annoying at night because it's impossible to see the sliders. I think you could do it by feel after a lot of night driving but I haven't managed that myself yet.
I saw a video a while ago that said they couldn't backlight them because that's where the proximity sensors were for the screen and if people's fingers were lit up then the proximity sensors would no longer work. I don't know how reliable that information is but it seems plausible. Could do with a wider redesign of the screen module.
