VW ID.4 electric crossover will cost less than $ 40,000December 3, 2019
Scott Keog, director of the American division of Volkswagen, said that in the USA, ID CROZZ will be sold for $ 30,000 with a small one, taking into account the federal tax credit. He also told how much sales the company hopes.
According to Scott Keog in an interview with Automotive News, the VW Group, including Audi and Porsche, will use a federal tax credit for about two years until it issues a total of 200,000 units of vehicles. The electric car ID CROZZ, aka ID.4, will be available at the end of 2020. By this time, by rough estimates, the total sales of E-Golf, Audi e-tron and Porsche Taycan should reach 50,000 units. It turns out that the company plans to sell annually from 50 to 70 thousand ID CROZZ for the first two years.
For comparison: Tesla sold over 67,000 Model 3 units in the United States in the first half of 2019. And by 2021, the electric car market should become significantly larger, Electrek writes.
Keog expressed confidence that the price of VW electric cars will remain the same, even after sales reach 200,000 units. This means that the price set by the seller for electric cars after the abolition of tax benefits at the end of 2023 may decline.
All-wheel drive crossover ID CROZZ will be equipped with a 83 kWh battery, which will provide the car with a power reserve of 500 km with a full battery charge. The total capacity of two electric motors will be 306 liters. from. It will be assembled on the MEB modular platform, which was completed a year ago.
Herbert Diss, Volkswagen’s chief executive, recently promised investors that the new ID.3 electric car would be 40% cheaper to manufacture than e-Golf. The price reduction will occur, for the most part, thanks to MEB.
