    Volkswagen reveal sketches of a potential convertible ID.3 electric car

    Volkswagen have released illustrations of what their ID.3 electric car might look like if they made it as a convertible. It has a near-identical design to the zero-emission hatchback that has been on sale since the summer of 2020. Volkswagen recently announced the more affordable ID.3 Pro, so maybe the convertible will be officially launched soon.

    The ID.3 has already become a massive success story for the German carmaker with it topping electric car sales charts in many countries. It was so popular in Norway in September 2020 that it was the country’s best selling of all cars, including internal combustion engine vehicles, and accounted for 60 percent of sales.

    The illustrations of the convertible show what a potential Volkswagen ID.3 cabriolet could look like. It retains many of the features of the ID.3 that has won so many fans including its clean body lines, long low angle windscreen and the short-snouted boxy front-end. It also retains the ID.3’s neat looking grille-width LED light set-up, similar rear lights and rolls on large-sized wheels like the hardtop.

    We are sure that some will make the obvious connection to Volkwagen’s older convertible cars. It has elements of both the Beetle and the Golf, which were two of the brand’s biggest sellers of their time. We think the ID.3 convertible could be a winner, especially in warmer climates. We don’t expect this neat looking convertible to hit the roads this summer but it could be ready to roll in 2022 or 2023.
