VW Unveils New Electric Flagship

February 2020

Volkswagen has said it aims to become the world’s leading producer of electric vehicles, and the German carmaker is off to a promising start.

Ahead of VW’s media spectacle launch of its new electric ID.3 in Zwickau in November, at a plant converted specifically to produce EVs, the German carmaking giant received over 30,000 reservations.

“More than 100,000 further ID. fans have registered for the ID.3 newsletter,” VW said in a statement. “This success shows that the ID.3 is coming at precisely the right time. More and more people want to switch over to e-mobility.”

The reservations are non-binding, but pre-bookers had to deposit 1,000 euros.

Meanwhile, according to a report in Manager Magazine, online dealers are currently offering older e-Golfs at prices that, once government subsidies for the purchase of EVs is taken into account, are cheaper than those for conventional combustion-engine vehicles.
