Sales of the Volkswagen ID.4 are suffering from the limited supply in the first quarter of 2022
Volkswagen reports 64,993 vehicle sales in the US in the first quarter of 2022 (down 28.5% year-on-year), indicating significant supply problems and limited availability of new vehicles.
The company delivered in the first quarter 2,755 fully electric Volkswagen ID.4 (4.2% of total volume), that is 481% more than a year ago, although we must bear in mind that it was the start of sales (474 units). A more reasonable figure is the decline in ID.4 sales from quarter to quarter.
We anticipate that the temporary suspension of production of the ID.4 (and other models) at the main plant for the MEB-based model in Zwickau, Germany, will add to any previous issues in the second quarter.
Good news for all orderers would be an accelerated start of production of the Volkswagen ID.4 model in the USA (in Chattanooga, Tennessee) and a faster ramp-up.
The cumulative number of Volkswagen ID.4s sold in the US is now nearly 20,000 (19,497 to be precise), which, according to our data, is more than the cumulative sales of the retired Volkswagen e-Golf over several years.
Recall that the company has received more than 40,000 reservations for the ID.4 in the United States, so more than half are still waiting for new cars.
The 2022 model year version of the Volkswagen ID.4 has been improved compared to the 2021 model year version and offers up to 7-8% more range according to EPA testing methods.
