According to foreign media reports, Volkswagen will launch the ID.AERO sedan in the global market. Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said that the car will be the company’s next global model for the European, Chinese and American markets after ID.4.
ID. AERO marks an important milestone in Volkswagen’s electric car strategy and is likely to be Volkswagen’s own “Tesla Model 3.”
As Volkswagen’s electric car delivery continues to grow, some analysts predict that Volkswagen will surpass market leader Tesla in sales as early as 2024.
Currently, Volkswagen is selling four different ID-branded electric vehicles, namely ID.3, ID.4, ID.5 and ID.6. The company’s electric vehicle orders are still high, with 135,000 units as of mid-November, an increase of 65% from 2021.
In the first half of 2022, the Volkswagen Group delivered 217,000 pure electric vehicles, up 27% from the same period last year, when it delivered 170,900 vehicles. Of these, the ID series delivered 92,800 vehicles.
Volkswagen said its goal is for 70% of vehicles sold in Europe to be pure electric by 2030, with the target number for the US and Chinese markets being 50%.
The ID.AERO sedan is based on MEB (Modular Electric Drive Kit) platform and will be equipped with a 77kWh lithium-ion battery. The WLTP range of the vehicle is expected to reach 620 km (385 miles). The dimensions of the ID.AERO concept car are 4975/1897/1528 mm, with a wheelbase of 2966 mm. Production is expected to start next year in Emden, one of the main ports in Germany.
