FRANKFURT -- Volkswagen brand has solved the software glitches that affected the launch of its key ID3 battery-powered hatchback.
VW is now ready to start delivering the ID3 to European customers with fully functioning software, spokespersons for the automaker told Automotive News Europe.
The vehicle is not being sold in the U.S. because it is considered too small for American tastes. VW’s first MEB car in the U.S. will be the ID4 crossover, which will be built in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Engineers have fixed the glitches and ID3 cars built in Zwickau from now onward will be fully functional, VW executives said. ID3 cars that have already been delivered to customers will be recalled and fixed.
