The release of the new Volkswagen ID.3 is postponed due to software problemsMarch 27, 2020
In the German brand, another scandal is brewing.
Volkswagen had high expectations for its ID.3 electric car, but problems arose with the model. Due to software problems, information about which first appeared last year, the car cannot be released according to the plans of the brand.
Note that a low-quality digital platform of the electric car will cause huge losses for the concern, as well as entail an environmental penalty, which the brand planned to reduce due to the release of new items.
for the first time, ID.3 was officially unveiled last fall. The novelty was positioned as an epoch-making model, which was supposed to become a massive electric car and lay the foundation for the ID family. However, everything went wrong.
In November last year, the company launched the production of the model in Zwickau, but so far only bodies without electronic filling have left the assembly line, which are then sent for storage to warehouses. At the same time, the model is still very far from the finished product, as reported by Süddeutsche Zeitung.
A completely original digital platform with the possibility of updating “over the air” was too “raw”, including due to a lack of allocated resources. The brand’s IT director has already been fired, and the company itself is in urgent negotiations with Daimler on cooperation.
