VW ID.3 Harlequin: Electrified Edition

In the mid-1990s, the Polo Harlequin made waves with its bold, multi-colored exterior, drawing inspiration from the comedic harlequin characters of traditional theatre. The original model’s charm lay in its unpredictability—owners discovered the unique panel color combination only upon collection. Today, Volkswagen reimagines this playful spirit for the electric ID.3, enhancing its allure with electroluminescent paint. This feature, first seen on the ID.7 concept, allows the car’s panels to illuminate, creating an interactive experience linked to the vehicle’s soundscape and the new ChatGPT functionality within the Volkswagen range.

The Electroluminescent ID.3 Harlequin Edition is not merely a nod to Volkswagen’s creative past; it signifies a step towards a more engaging and personalized driving experience in the electric vehicle domain. With its launch on April 1, Volkswagen invites enthusiasts to explore this limited edition through its online configurator, promising a blend of nostalgia and innovation that’s rare in today’s automotive landscape.
