Any clue why ID for a new family of vehicles? Identity? id as in psyche? id as in UK mobile phone company? Does ID have a subtle meaning for the young?
Seems as daft as iPace from Jaguar!!

Look at all the major manufacturers. They are all doing it:
- VW = ID
- MB = EQ
- BMW = i...
- Toyota = Prius
- Nissan = Leaf

It is sort of brand protection (for the existing models of the respective brand) and on the other it is a brand separation, better identity for the new product.

iD stands for intelligent design.
iD3 is for the Golf class of car (hatchback). iD1 and 2 will be smaller segment cars and obviously iD4 upwards for high range models.
It will be interesting to see what will happen in the future as the iD3 in my eyes is a Golf replacement in years to come.
