Alan Day, a British car dealer, said the first batch of 35 all-electric vehicles will begin delivering around March 28 or 29, at least three months ahead of expectations. Earlier, Volkswagen said it would not begin delivering ID until the summer of 2020. 3, the first ID.3 models will be on the road in Germany in mid-2020. The first batch of VW ID3 will be delivered by the end of March, ahead of expectations.
In December, Volkswagen said it was a whole-europe, ID. 3 has a reservation of 30,000 vehicles. But now, in the UK alone, the number of cars is more than 20,000.
Last September, VOLKSWAGEN unveiled the ID model ID.3, the first model of the ID series electric car, built on a new MEB platform, equipped with VW’s latest driver assistance features, starting at less than $33,000 ($234,800).
The production version ID.3 will have 3 different life-extended versions: ID.3 Base, ID.3 In Version (ID.3 1ST) and ID.3 Long Life Edition. Under the WLTP (Global Uniform Light Vehicle Testing Program) standard, the base ID.3 has a range of 205 miles (330 kilometers), a medium-form ID.3 has a range of 261 miles (420 kilometers) and a long-range ID.3 has a range of 342 miles (about 550 kilometers).
Early Nov, VW officially launched PRODUCTION of ID.3 at its Zwickau plant in the hope of overtaking Tesla. Currently, ID. 3 Bookings are only available in European countries and will not be available in the United States for the time being.
It follows reports that Volkswagen will delay delivery of its first vehicles due to a shortage of batteries and software problems. But in May last year,media reported that VW had changed its battery procurement plans because of concerns about a shortage of batteries from Samsung.
Currently, Volkswagen has chosen LG Chem, Samsung and SK Innovation to supply the European market, and to the Market in the Ninder era. Starting in 2022, the company chose SK Innovation to supply batteries for its North American plants.
VW plans to launch up to 75 all-electric models and about 60 hybrids by 2029. Last September, Volkswagen unveiled its next-generation ID electric vehicle ID.4, the second mass-produced model in the company’s electric car range, and the first ID electric car to enter the U.S. market.
