The first production electric car from Volkswagen in General is already completely declassified and is waiting for the start of mass production. However, the concern continues to publish some details, and this time it became known about the ability of the electric car to "semaphore" its passengers.
Volkswagen ID.3 will provide a new communication function called ID.Light. By and large, it's just a system of led interior lighting, but it was very advanced. For example, ID works.Light in full compliance with the voice control function of the electric car components.
Ribbon illumination is able to visually "confirm" the reception of voice commands, as well as attract the attention of the driver and passengers to the messages of active safety and navigation systems. In addition, this or that ripple lighting can appropriately emphasize the change of modes of operation of the power plant, as well as the opening or closing of doors.
Moreover, by using the ID.This car can give advice to the driver-for example, relying on the messages of the navigation system to emphasize the need to change lanes.
Finally, the backlight will inform the pilot ID.3 about the battery status – green tint when fully charged and so on.
It is claimed to learn the" language " of the ID system.Light the driver will not need: all messages will be intuitive, as they use familiar colors.
At the start of sales the Volkswagen ID.3 will be equipped with a 204-horsepower motor on the rear axle and three battery options – for 330, 420 or 550 km of mileage. Production is due to begin next year, but prices are not yet called: Volkswagen uses the phrase " less than 30 thousand euros."
