U.S. Volkswagen ID.4 Sales Decreased By 37% In Q1 2024

By automotive-mag.com 2 Min Read

Volkswagen of America reports that during the first quarter of 2024, its vehicle sales in the United States amounted to 82,101, 21% more than a year ago.

Unfortunately, Volkswagen’s all-electric car sales significantly decreased during the period, reaching the lowest level since Q2 2022, when imports of the ID.4 from Europe were constrained. In Q1, Volkswagen ID.4 sales amounted to 6,167, which is 37% less than a year ago.

The decline in Q1 might be related to the initial uncertainty of the eligibility for the $7,500 federal tax credit for models produced at the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant (confirmed in late January). Another reason is that some customers are waiting for the new 2024 model year version.

Nonetheless, the ID.4’s share in Volkswagen’s total sales remains relatively solid at 7.5%.

For reference, in 2023, Volkswagen sold in the U.S. more than 37,700 electric cars, which was a very strong 84% improvement over 2022. The all-electric car share amounted to 11.5%.
