Volkswagen’s new car called Volkswagen ID. is the first electric car that the company has mass produced. This car will have a lot of good competition like Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia e-Niro, and Nissan Leaf. The reservation plan was revealed at a press conference by Jurgen Stackmann who is a brand board member for sales. He said that the first stage of the electric car (ID) will get underway on May 8, 2019, and that’s what the prebooking for ID. will start. And customers who would like to be the very first ID. owner can make a downpayment to secure the early production of VW’s first electric car’s early unit.
He also said that it would be improbable if the launch edition is already sold out before ID. is unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the numbers reported by their dealers are indicating that.

The first version will use a 48kWh battery for a range of 205 miles, and the mid-range will be a 55kWh model that will be capable of 250 miles. Last but not least will be a 62kWh range-topper managing a WLTP-certified 342 miles of range.
