Volkswagen delivered 474 ID.4s to American customers over just 2 weeks since deliveries started on March 16. It is a rather good result for an all-new fully electric model in the USA.
The manufacturer hopes the ID.4 crossover will be one of the brand’s best-sellers on the North American continent in course of time. Will the Volkswagen ID.4 ever become the top-selling non-Tesla electric vehicle in the United States?
It is too early to make predictions. Volkswagen has not stopped selling the e-Golfs in stock yet: there were 22 sales of that model in the 1st quarter of this year.
U.S. sales of Volkswagen EVs totaled 496 units from January through March 2021. Compared with the total volume of 90,853 Volkswagen vehicles during the 1st quarter, the ID.4 share amounted to over half percent – little, but this is only a beginning. The ID.4 is a flagship model for the company’s electrification.
By the way, the most-sold non-electric models of the brand on the US market in Q1 2021 are the Atlas (30,520 units), Tiguan (27,265 units), Jetta (22,714 units).
An all-wheel-drive version of the VW ID.4 will join the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 later. In 2022, Volkswagen plans to start the local production of the crossover.
Let’s recall that the Volkswagen ID.4 covers 250 miles on a single charge, according to the EPA test. Its starting price is $39,995, which turns into $33,415 taking into account DST and federal tax credit.
