Volkswagen Doubles Electric Vehicle Deliveries in Q3 2020, ID.4 Leads the Way
German automaker Volkswagen said it delivered 122,100 all-electric vehicles worldwide in the third quarter of 2021, doubling its total from the same period a year earlier.
Volkswagen says total electric vehicle deliveries in the third quarter of 2021 are an increase of 109% from the third quarter of 2020, as the automaker was just starting to find its rhythm with all-electric vehicles. In the first nine months of the year, Volkswagen says it delivered 293,100 electric vehicles, a significant number, especially since electric vehicles are not the company’s main base for car manufacturing. Volkswagen, alongside Ford, is one of the only companies in the world to have made known its electrification intentions. While many other historic automakers talk about astronomical investments in electric vehicles, many have not even started to develop future models that will be said to be their primary focus over the next several decades.

Volkswagen, however, is taking its efforts to transition to a fully electric business seriously. “Our global electric offensive continues to run at full speed: we are clearly number 1 for all-electric vehicles in Europe and number 2 in the United States,” said Christian Dahlheim, Volkswagen Group Sales Manager. “In China, we really took off in the third quarter, with BEV deliveries almost 60% higher than the entire first half of the year. The strong demand for our overall target for the year of one million electrified vehicles (BEV + PHEV) is there. “
Europe was by far Volkswagen’s most important delivery market and has been for some time. The company delivered 81,700 of its 122,100 Q3 electric vehicles to the European market. The performance of the third quarter of 2021 exceeded that of the third quarter of 2020, with Volkswagen recording an 80.5% increase in sales compared to the same period last year. China became the second cheapest for VW with 28,900 deliveries and the largest increase quarter over quarter. Last year, China had just 7,000 deliveries of Volkswagen electric vehicles in the third quarter, an increase of 315.2 percent from the third quarter of last year.
The Volkswagen AG brand has five electric vehicles: the Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4, the Audi e-tron, the Porsche Taycan and the ŠKODA Enyaq iV. The ID.4 dominated with 72,700 units sold, continuing the crossover’s popularity story. ID.3 was second with 52,700 units, followed by e-tron (36,100), Taycan (28,600) and Enyaq iV (28,200).
