Deliveries of Volkswagen ID.3 electric car to start in September: Official

  • Volkswagen said the ID.3 can be ordered from June 17 onwards.

Volkswagen on Wednesday said its "first edition" ID.3 electric car will go on sale for under 40,000 euros ($45,484.00) next week, with deliveries due from September, as the German carmaker embarks on a mass production push for zero-emission cars.

The launch price makes the ID.3 eligible for up to 9,000 euros in electric car incentives after Germany earlier this month doubled electric car subsidies for vehicles costing less than 40,000 euros.

The launch of the ID.3 comes as German sales of battery electric cars rose by 20% in May, to 5,578 vehicles according to Germany's auto industry association VDA.
