ID. software 3.1 update

With the 3.1 software, Volkswagen is providing new functions and improvements to promote comfort and save time during use. 

ID. software 3.1 update

With this update, your ID. model will receive a number of new features and improvements, especially in the area of charging, which can bring you more convenience. This update is free of charge for you. Many of these improvements are based on customer feedback and requests.

What is included in the ID. software 3.1?

Plug & Charge 

The "Plug & Charge" function now makes charging even easier: If activated, your ID. can authenticate itself at public charging stations and start the charging process automatically once the charging cable is plugged into the car without the need to scan a charging card.
To use the function at a compatible charging station, you need a charging plan, such as We Charge Go or We Charge Plus from Volkswagen Group Charging GmbH (Elli), which supports "Plug & Charge". After charging is completed, billing is automatically carried out based on the stored charging rate plan. Active "Plug & Charge" via the Volkswagen App and in the charging settings of your vehicle.

Important information :

^If you are selecting a Volkswagen ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 or ID.7 then prices shown are the MDP (Manufacturer's Direct Price).  This is the price set by Volkswagen which you pay for the vehicle.  Volkswagen ID vehicles are sold by Volkswagen UK, a trading division of Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Limited (please note that you will need to visit an authorised Volkswagen Retailer (acting as agent for Volkswagen UK) to order, purchase and take delivery of your Volkswagen ID vehicle).  The MDP includes delivery to an authorised Volkswagen Retailer (acting as agent for Volkswagen UK), number plates, new vehicle registration fee, the first year's Vehicle Excise Duty and VAT (calculated at 20%).  You can find out more about the Volkswagen model for selling ID vehicles by clicking https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/en/legal/mdp-explained.html.

If you are selecting any other Volkswagen vehicle (excluding the Volkswagen ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 and ID.7) then prices listed are Manufacturer’s ‘On the road’ Recommended Retail Price. Actual prices are set by Volkswagen authorised retailers in their sole discretion – always obtain these prices from your chosen Volkswagen Retailer.  Recommended On-The-Road (OTR) retail prices include: delivery charge, number plates, new vehicle registration fee, the first year's Vehicle Excise Duty and VAT (calculated at 20%). 

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information above. Prices are taken from the Volkswagen website - this website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products listed may be incorrectly priced. Volkswagen may change prices at any time (this includes where there are government changes in regulation and/or legislation). There may be a delay to any price displaying correctly on our materials and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some vehicles may be incorrectly priced.

Please be advised we may not be able to provide valuations for vehicles which are outside certain age or mileage ranges, specialist or customised, or not registered in the UK. The actual sale price is dependent on a number of additional factors, which you can discuss further with your retailer. T&Cs will apply.
