VW ID3 Electric Coming to Canada
Earlier this month at the Volkswagen ID3’s Frankfurt auto show introduction, VW was consistent in its messaging that the compact electric car would not be coming to the U.S.—or to North America.
Volkswagen Group of America CEO Scott Keogh gave us a very good reason why bringing a crossover based on the ID Crozz—and not the ID 3—to the U.S. was a no-brainer: because including gasoline models the compact crossover segment is nearly two orders of magnitude greater than the Golf-size hatchback segment the ID 3 represents.
It seems, however, that Canada might have more interest in the ID 3 than its neighbors to the south. Thomas Tetzlaff, a spokesman for Volkswagen Canada told the Globe and Mail that “in the Canadian marketplace we are taking a very, very, very close look at this car” and “giving it due consideration to bring it into Canada only.”
