Volkswagen meets target one year ahead of schedule
It has been just over two years since Volkswagen launched its first electric car in the ID range, the Volkswagen ID.3, and during these two years we have seen the family grow with the arrival of the ID.4, ID.5 and even the ID.6 for the Chinese market.
In the coming months and years, new models such as the Volkswagen ID.AERO, a long-awaited 100% electric saloon, will also be added to the range of electric vehicles offered by the German brand, which will cover practically all vehicle segments.
Now, Volkswagen is celebrating, as it has announced that it has achieved its 2023 target of selling more than 500,000 units of the ID range, a milestone reached a year ahead of schedule.
This is undoubtedly a significant figure, especially given the problems the automotive sector is facing with the components crisis, a factor that has caused many factories to temporarily close or reduce their daily production.
On the other hand, this confirms the good acceptance of electric cars in the market, with more and more users opting for this type of vehicle instead of a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or combustion engine.
Imelda Labbé, Member of the Board for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales at Volkswagen had this to say about the milestone:
“The delivery of half a million .IDs confirms that Volkswagen models are being well received by our customers, worldwide. We are on the right track with our electric mobility campaign and our success story continues. Our focus has not changed: we want to make Volkswagen the most desirable brand for sustainable mobility. The order bank at Volkswagen remains high: We are doing everything we can to deliver orders for approximately 135,000 IDs to our customers as quickly as possible. However, due to the persistently tense situation with regard to parts supply, we have to adjust production repeatedly.”
To all this, Volkswagen plans to launch ten new electric cars by 2026, as Labbé corroborated:
“Volkswagen will have the broadest portfolio of electric vehicles in the automotive industry: from the entry-level electric car with a target price of less than €25,000 to the new flagship Aero B. have the right offer in every segment.”
