Volkswagen ID.4 declared marque's most popular electric car worldwide in 2022
Volkswagen now puts its grand total of vehicles shipped worldwide in 2022 at 4.56 million, or a somewhat understandable drop of 6.8%, in 2022 compared to 2021. Nevertheless, the marque also notes that demand for its cars roared on unabated, growing by 18% in Europe with a backlog that "remains very high".
The marque also asserts that global deliveries of its e-vehicles went up by 23.6% year-on-year (YoY) regardless, with North American shipments growing by 27.7%. Then again, those numbers went up by 102.9% in Volkswagen's biggest market, China.
The ID.4, one of the models available in that region, is now accounted as Volkwagen's "top electric world car" for 2022, accounting for ~52% of its ~330,000 deliveries for the year. The marque claims it as the top-selling car of any type in Sweden, as it was in 2021.
Volkswagen has been in the e-vehicle market for just over 2 years now, yet now estimates deliveries from this line of business at over 580,000.
It has just unveiled plans for an upcoming ID.7 flagship that might keep those numbers going, and has now also announced that it might be joined by a new car at the other end of the scale, in that it might start at €25,000 (~US$27,000) or less, by 2026.
