Here are the top 5 best selling all-electric vehicles of the VW Group in 2020:
Volkswagen ID.3: 56,500 units
Audi e-tron: 47,300 units
Volkswagen e-Golf: 41,300 units
Volkswagen e-up!: 22,200 units
Porsche Taycan: 20,000 units
Dr. Christian Dahlheim, head of Volkswagen Group deals, remarked:
“The COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 an extremely challenging year. The Volkswagen Group performed well in this environment and strengthened its market position. We are particularly pleased that we hit the ground running in our e-offensive in spite of the pandemic and thus took a big step forward in the implementation of our Together 2025+ strategy. We will keep up the momentum this year, adding many more attractive electric models.“
As Dahlheim stated, this sets Volkswagen’s momentum in electric vehicles for 2021.
The Porsche Taycan and Audi e-tron will move it along, yet vehicles like the ID.3 should push it a lot higher. VW is required to increase production and deliveries in 2021, and the ID.4 will be added to the blend universally.
A few other Volkswagen-claimed brands are likewise adding MEB-based electric vehicles in 2021, which could bring about a comparative three-digit development rate in electric vehicle sales for the brand this year.
