Der VW ID.4 war im April das meistzugelassene Auto in Schweden. Wow!
Volkswagen’s new MEB-based models had a strong month, with the VW ID.4 crossover taking the #1 spot in the entire auto market with 1,444 unit sales in April. The VW ID.3 hatchback was the next most popular BEV, with 469 unit sales, enough to take the overall market’s #10 spot.
Since some brands deliver to Europe in peaks and troughs, let’s take a step back and look at the year-to-date most popular BEV models in Sweden:
In its first month of decent delivery volume, the ID.4 has just overtaken the Tesla Model 3 to grab the top BEV spot for the year so far. Whether this position will hold throughout the year will depend upon the sustained level of demand for the new ID.4, beyond these first few months, which may simply be fulfilling a backlog of pre-orders.
When we combine all of the Volkswagen Group MEB-platform siblings, the ID.4, ID.3 and the Skoda Enyaq, plus other siblings coming soon (e.g. the Audi Q4 e-tron), this platform looks certain to dominate Sweden’s BEV sales in 2021.
