Less than 3,000 Volkswagen ID.3 1ST are left for reservation (out of 30,000 available).

According to the most recent Automobil Woche article, Volkswagen has received more than 27,000 reservations for the 1ST launch edition of the Volkswagen ID.3. As the plan is to offer a limited number of 30,000 1ST, less than 3,000 (or 10% of all) remain available.

The pre-booking of ID.3 1ST was opened on May 8 and the first 10,000 was achieved in 24-hours, on May 9. The pace of registrations then slowed down so the 20,000 mark was reached in early June.

Volkswagen has needed more than 100 days to get 27,000 and it's now close to the target of 30,000, which was expected to be achieved by the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. We guess it will be achieved on time, but it's nothing extraordinary taking into consideration the massive sales volume planed.

Here's everything we know in regards to the ID.3:
