Europe: E-SUV - Crossover sales learns thrust through VW ID.4-europe

2021 seems to develop the year of electric SUV and E-Crossover. At the end of January, this segment was able to record a new high. Then had to accept a first, small damper in February, before the upswing started again in March. At the end of April 2021, the segment of the E-SUV and electro-crossover was responsible for 42.5% of all approvals. The end of the first quarter was still around 30%. Rasant growth comes from the VW Group.

Because by the debut of the VW ID.4 In Europe, the sales of SUV and Crossover Stroms increased enormously. Based by the Skoda Enyaq IV, which also comes from the VW Group. Also for the future one may assume that new electric vehicles such as the Tesla Model Y as well as the Audi Q4 E-Tron, the sales support. Also “well-known faces” like the XC40 from Volvo, which has received a further electrician in the Crossover segment with the C40 Recharge, will contribute to growth. But also the others, over 25 e models in this segment underline that electric SUV and E-Crossover are the most popular.

From the segment of the lower middle class, however, the desire for sales growth is still to be found. If not quite so strong. Was this strongly driven by the VW ID in the previous months.3, which at the end of the year 2020 on 55.003 units brought, shows a different picture at the end of the first quarter. But then the ID set.3 on the spurt and recorded its highest sales figures for the previous year in April 2021. Timely suitable for this is our VW ID.3 1st Max Test and Driving Report appeared.

The Near Executive Sector fell to a share of only 3.7 percent due to the quarterly delivery fluctuations of Tesla Model 3. Here again shows how dependent Tesla is from his quarterly shortings. In absolute numbers, it shows that Model 3 in April 1.Was dropped 281 times, the ID.3 whole 5.816 times. And yet the ID remains.3 with 17.233 units bottled behind the Tesla Model 3 (31.732 units) in the full year. However, just as a long time wonders. Because the VW Group picks up.

The so-called “Basic” sector was quite stable in paragraph, but above all in Germany undergoes a high demand, as the buying promotion from environmental bonus and innovation premium makes the strongest noticeable here. The segment of the small cars was not so far away from the basic segment with 14.1%, driven by popular models such as the Renault Zoe, the Peugeot E-208 and the Opel Corsa-E. Below we have considered the purely electric vehicles in their respective segments to allow a comparison.

  1. I also believe that the ID.4 and the EnyaQ in the segment. Because with funding you are in a price range where 77 kWh versions are affordable for such some households. The Tesla comes much later than both and, among us:

    Who is so crazy and orders one from the first quarter? For, first, mature Tesla always at the customer and that is a new factory and their first car, and secondly, 60t € is likely to be the basic price as so high that -How to expect a significant price reduction in the home country – very quickly.

    Because 48T € costs a Nicer Enyaq with a large battery. CarPlay has the by the way in series. What the customer likes. They have a mountain to climb ..
