Opinions can be divided about the spontaneous elimination of state subsidies for the purchase of electric cars in December 2023. However, the end of the German environmental bonus means that Volkswagen, among others, is forced to significantly reduce the price of its electric cars – for all private customers, without any government support. VW grants a discount of up to 7,735 euros on individual model variants of the ID.4 and ID.5. The ID.4 basic model starts at just 34,900 euros.
Big discount on the ID.4 – modest reduction on the ID.7
The basic version of the newly revised VW ID.3 has also been significantly reduced, which currently costs less than 33,000 euros after deducting all discounts in the configurator – a loss of 7,020 euros! On the other hand, the price reduction for the latest model in the ID family is somewhat more restrained. The Wolfsburg-based company is currently only offering a discount of up to 4,760 euros for the new VW ID.7. According to official VW information, the offer is limited until the end of March 2024. However, it is questionable whether Volkswagen can easily return to the old price level. Because some of the competitors are also increasing their prices a lot.
