Volkswagen has launched a new line-up of optional accessories for the all-electric ID.3 hatchback, which are available to order online or at a VW dealership now.

The ID.3’s new bike rack is priced at £1,470 including fitting and is compatible with every version of the EV, except those fitted with the 77kWh Pro S battery.

Buyers also now have their choice of some new door mirror caps in either gloss black or faux-carbon fibre. Prices start from £181 and £191.50 respectively and both can be specified with scrolling indicators for an extra £247 (including fitting).

Finally, buyers can also now choose from two types of interior floor mats, made from either carpet or rubber. The former is priced at £204, while the latter costs £188.

Volkswagen recently dropped the starting price of the ID.3 to £28,670 in the UK, thanks to the introduction of a less powerful 143bhp electric motor and an entry-level Life specification. 

The new base-model is powered by a 58kWh battery pack, which offers a maximum range of 263 miles, based on WLTP testing data. When connected to a 100kW DC rapid charger, the cells can also take on an 80 percent charge in 35 minutes.
