Volkswagen ID.3 Life

The fully-electric Volkswagen ID.3 seems like it was designed with PCO drivers in mind, and we’re extremely excited about what it can offer. It packs a punch with its range and has a stylish design. It may look small but it feels spacious and practical in terms of rear seats and boot storage, not to mention it’s easy to drive and park on London’s small and narrow roads – which is perfect for new Uber drivers!
