Volkswagen will offer three battery options for the ID.3

After a string of Volkswagen ID concepts rolling out over the better part of three years, it seems like ages ago that the original ID hatchback concept made its world debut.

Bordrin estimates a 435-mile (700-km) all-electric range on the iV7. We're not buying it, but that's ...
