During his trip to Germany, the head of Tesla drove the already available Volkswagen ID.3 electric car and examined the ID.4 cross, which has not yet gone on sale.
Musk got the opportunity to test the VW ID.3 during a meeting with Herbert Diess, head of Volkswagen, at Brownswick Airport. The head of Tesla praised the ID.3’s ability to overclock, stressed that the potential of the electric “5-door” is quite sufficient for a civilian car.
Musk, in particular, praised the VW ID.3’s handling and the presence of a number of electronic assistants already in the standard version. Automotive News sources on Monday, September 7, report that Musk was also allowed to take a close look at the ID.4 cross. The rest of the details of the meeting of the heads of the two large auto concerns were not disclosed.
