It is a “back to the future” project, the one the Volkswagen designers embarked on to create the ID.3. The stylistic rules – that we will find on all the brand’s electric vehicles – are inspired by the historic models that have determined Volkswagen’s success throughout the world, in some cases becoming genuine symbols of their era. “With the ID.3, we are initiating a new phase, but there is no future without reference to the good things of the past. The soft lines of the Beetle and of the Transporter kindle joy from the very first look, creating a kind of empathy with these cars. We chose, therefore, to replicate them, reinterpreting them in the ID.3”, says Klaus Bischoff, head of design for the Volkswagen brand.
