Thousands of Volkswagen ID.3s are stored at the Zwickau airport
There are ID.3s as far as the eye can see
Volkswagen is currently experiencing a real adventure with the launch of its mass-market electric car, the ID.3. Indeed, the German brand is determined to keep to its schedule and promises the first deliveries to customers this summer. After software problems to be solved, Volkswagen is now facing the Coronavirus outbreak.
More than 20,000 units have already been produced and left the assembly lines without the right software. They were then stored in car parks to be updated. Unfortunately, vehicles are accumulating and some areas are now receiving thousands of ID.3s, such as the Zwickau airport.
These cars are currently blocked and cannot be taken care of due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Nextmove takes us on a guided tour (in German) of this unusual location where about 6,000 ID.3s are stored, all with the ID.3 1st launch series.
Rumour has it that Volkswagen is already building another temporary car park near the Emden plant where the Passat is produced. The German brand does not want to be overwhelmed as this plant will host a large part of the production of the ID.3 in the coming years.
