Volkswagen ID.3 will be replaced by physical buttons rather than touch.
As per Volkswagen CEO Thomas Schäfer,
“We’ve listened very carefully to the ID.3 community, and we’re bringing forward the facelift of our first MEB model to 2023. The new ID.3 is taking a significant and noticeable leap forward in terms of quality, materials, and system stability. A car that delivers what the Volkswagen brand promises.”
“Schäfer didn’t directly confirm the ID.3 would get buttons, though. They are expected to make a reappearance in two ICE models next year, but given the context, we believe the ID.3 facelift will ditch the touch panels.”
A new Customer Focus Board Committee has been established by Volkswagen, whose work is listening to owners and quickly implementing the desired changes. One of the first such changes is the reappearance of buttons on the VW Beetle’s steering wheels.
Well, in my opinion, it is something good to see that automakers are taking a keen interest in transforming their products in different ways. In the end, customer loyalty can be gained if the customers are getting their voices heard as well as respected.
