The Volkswagen ID.4 electric crossover entered the European TOP 10 best-selling mid-size crossovers. The model proved to be more popular than the Mazda CX-5 or Honda CR-V.

In its category, the Volkswagen ID.4 ranked ninth by sales. In the first half of 2021, almost 24,000 Europeans bought the vehicle, Carsalesbase reports.

Moreover, the Volkswagen ID.4 is ahead of the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V in Europe. The confident start of the Volkswagen ID.4 in the European market cannot be called accidental.

The demand for electric cars has been growing on the continent. A successful debut of the Skoda Enyaq confirms this trend. The Czech electric SUV boasts 13,500 sales, and it is ahead of the Mitsubishi Outlander, for instance.

Another electric SUV – the Mercedes-Benz EQC – showed a very decent result in H1. While the situation is predictable with high sales of relatively affordable Volkswagen ID.4 and Skoda Enyaq, almost 9,000 sales of the Mercedes-Benz EQC within six months are a surprise, given its price tag of 66,000 euros. Apparently, Mercedes hits the bulls-eye with its new electric SUV.

Interestingly, in Europe, even a Chinese electric SUV – the Aiways U5 is in demand, though not high. In the first half of this year, only 169 Europeans purchased it.
