European deliveries of the flagship electric car had to be postponed until the fall due to software problems.

Volkswagen has decided on the date of delivery of the ID.3 electric car to Europe – it was decided to organize them in September. The postponement is associated with “problem” software. But Europeans will be able to pre-order a “green” novelty from the German automaker already this month – from June 17. It will be possible to book the first 30 thousand cars.

In the fall, deliveries of an early version of the electric car, devoid of a number of characteristics, should take place. ID.3 with a full range of options will have to wait until the end of 2020. Recall that the German brand is postponing sales of its environmentally friendly flagship for the second time. Prior to this, the COVID-19 pandemic influenced the electric car’s market debut.

The launch of ID.3 will begin with the limited edition First Edition. Such an electric car will receive a 201-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle and a battery of 58 kW • h. The maximum power reserve, according to developers, reaches a mark of 420 kilometers.

Also, the Germans are going to release two more versions of the electric car – First Edition Plus and First Edition Max. In general, the brand conceived Volkswagen ID.3 as an inexpensive alternative to Tesla models.
