Volkswagen adds bike rack option for electric ID.3

The Volkswagen ID.3’s options list expands with a a new range of practical and cosmetic add-ons.

Volkswagen has launched a new line-up of optional accessories for the all-electric ID.3 hatchback to make it a more practical, small EV.

Among the new additions for the ID.3 is a custom-made bike rack. It slots into a mount on the hatchback’s rear bumper, but unlike existing bike rack for the ID.3, it also allows access to the car’s boot when attached.

The ID.3’s new bike rack is priced at around $2500 in Europe 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, both can be specified with scrolling indicators.

Finally, buyers can also now choose from two types of interior floor mats, made from either carpet or rubber for those who might be going mountain biking in winter.

Volkswagen Australia is yet to announce timing and pricing for the new electric model locally.
