The first ID.3 models have rolled onto the quays at Dublin Port and will be making their way to pre-bookers in the coming weeks, writes Trish Whelan.

The ID.3 1st Edition is a specially equipped version of the 58kW version of the ID.3 (WLTP range of 410-424km).

Volkswagen Ireland Brand Director Rodolfo Calixto said the arrival of the car marks a new era for the Volkswagen brand globally, but now the ID.3 is here in Ireland and it was ‘very special’ to witness these cars arriving into Dublin.”
