In a new video posted the the Battery Life Youtube channel we see the Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S put to a highway range test. A pre-production version Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S with 77 kWh/82 kWh battery pack was used during the test.
The Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S has a WLTP rated range of 550 km (342 miles). It was was equipped with 18-inch wheels and winter tires during the highway range test which conducted at 130 km/h (81 mph) nominal. However, the real average speed was lower.
One of the most interesting results is that of the energy consumption which showed practically identical results to its smaller battery version. Its range was about two-thirds of the WLTP rating.
Although some hoped for higher results, the range was fine overall. Adjusting the wheels or using tires that aren’t season specific could improve the results.
Check out the results and the full video below:
-average speed of 119 km/h (74 mph)
-distance 351 km (218 miles) + 3% SOC estimated at 9 km (5.6 miles)
-total range of roughly 360 km (224 miles)
-average energy consumption: 20.5 kWh/100 km or 205 Wh/km (330 Wh/mile)
