The revolutionary hatchback picked up the 'Best Family Car' award at the 2020 GQ Car Awards, being recognised as the ''future of sustainable motoring''.

The ID.3 was commended for its ease of use, modern aesthetics and wide range of battery options. A special mention was given to Volkswagen's partnership with Pod Point and Tesco, with them being set to install over 2,400 free chargers at 600 stores across the UK.

The award will be announced in the March 2020 issue of the magazine with GQ saying: “Volkswagen wants to normalise electrification to gain mass acceptance for a format whose range and charge anxiety is still bothersome to many.

“A new kind of people’s car, then… Its design is crisply inoffensive, the driving process easy, the experience precision-tooled to sweep away all objections. Volkswagen is even working with Tesco to improve charging infrastructure.”

The first trophy that the ID.3 received was from Carwow, with it being named 'Most Wanted'. Tim O’Donovan, EV Product Marketing Manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “This is a considerable accolade for a key model in Volkswagen’s electric future. We know how talented the ID.3 is, and we’re hugely grateful that this has been recognised.

“What’s new and refreshing is that its success is recognised and measured against all of its peers, rather than just other electric models. Recognition of the ID.3 as the electric people’s car is massively rewarding, too.”
