New Volkswagen ID.3 R Coming

Volkswagen could expand on the new ID.3 electric car with a high performance R version, according to boss.
Volkswagen is “actively considering” a high-performance variant of the ID.3, according to a senior figure who has brought the original concept to production.

The ID.3 is being launched with up to 201bhp from a single rear-mounted electric motor. But Christine Leuderalbert, VW’s e-mobility product marketing specialist, says the firm is working on how to turn a car engineered for efficiency into one designed for driver thrills.

“We’re actively considering it, but we need to do some work on how an electric car can also be a performance car,” Leuderalbert told Auto Express. “We know electric vehicles have excellent acceleration, but we need to look at how the rest of the package would affect the car’s efficiency.” Reports Auto Express: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/volkswage ... considered

What would the main differences between the standard ID 3 and the ID 3 R be? Would this be something worth waiting on? I am in no rush myself and still shopping my options but if this is something that could be better for me, I wouldn't mind waiting.
