Subsequent to last year's facelift, the Volkswagen ID.3 has now been further improved, with the German car manufacturer launching the refreshed ID.3 Pro S. This model can charge faster, features more power, and gains the same infotainment system as the ID.7.
In the power department, the 2024 Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S has 228 hp (231 ps/170 kW), which is a healthy boost compared to the usual 201 hp (204 ps/150 kW). Due to the extra oomph, it is 0.8 seconds faster to 62 mph (100 kph), with the acceleration taking 7.1 seconds. This is a "power-on-demand" option available to customers in European countries outside Germany that is standard in the model's homeland.

The 77 kWh battery pack has been further refined with a pre-conditioning function that heats it up to the optimum temperature before allowing it to sip electrons. This upgrade allows the battery to be charged at up to 175 kW. According to the automaker, the charging time has been reduced by "several minutes." As for the electric compact hatchback's combined driving range, it is rated at 347 miles (559 km) on the WLTP cycle.

Volkswagen's 2024 ID.3 Pro S has a new infotainment system shared with the ID.7. The 12.9-inch touchscreen has a new and intuitive menu structure, the company says. The multi-function steering wheel has also been improved for more intuitive operation, and the driving mode selector was repositioned on the steering column switch. The IDA voice assistant is also new, and the model features artificial intelligence via ChatGPT.

Other novelties include the Wellness app, which is said to "increase well-being while driving or during breaks." It uses sound (including a Spotify playlist), air conditioning, and background lighting to create a calmer atmosphere inside the car, and the modes are called Power Break, Calm Down, and Fresh Up.

A new sound system is also on deck. The Harman Kardon audio comes with four pre-configured sound settings called Speech, Relax, Vibrant, and Pure, and it can also be individually adjusted via the equalizer.

The Travel Assist has been enhanced, the Park Assist Plus and memory function are available as an option, and the exit warning system is new. Additional safety systems include autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, Car2X, dynamic road sign display, and a few other features.

Volkswagen hasn't disclosed the model's pricing in the press release, but a quick look on its local website reveals that it starts at €47,595 ($50,985). This places it between the Pro and the range-topping GTX. The latter is an electric alternative to the Golf GTI that enjoys up to 322 hp (326 ps/240 kW) in the Performance specification, taking 5.6s to reach 62 mph (100 kph) and maxing out at 124 mph (200 kph).
