The company is also ramping-up ID.4 sales.

Volkswagen recently started sales of its latest ID. electric car in China, the ID.6, which exists in two separate model versions: ID.6 X (produced jointly with SAIC) and ID.6 CROZZ (produced jointly with FAW).

The ID.6 X entered the market in mid-June and, according to the manufacturer, more than 500 units were delivered in the first two weeks of sale. The ID.6 CROZZ joined the lineup in mid-July.

Depending on version, the ID.6 CROZZ price is between 239,800 yuan ($36,980) and 334,800 yuan ($51,630) after subsidies.

 

Meanwhile, the company is ramping up sales of the Volkswagen ID.4. In June, over 2,900 units were delivered (both X and CROZZ models). The cumulative number is probably now at around 7,500 cumulatively.

Volkswagen explains that the order intake in June exceeded this figure pointing to a growth trend for our ID.4 sales. That's probably an indirect answer to the articles about a slow start in China.

By the end of this year, Volkswagen intends to offer a total of five ID. models in China.
