In a statement Volkswagen said, deliveries of battery-powered electric vehicles to China have more than tripled in the first nine months of 2021.
For the January to September period, deliveries of battery electric vehicles (BEV) stood at 47,200 up from 15,700 in the same period last year.
“As planned, we significantly accelerated the BEV market ramp-up in China in the third quarter, and we are on track to meet our target for the year of delivering 80,000 to 100,000 vehicles of the ID. model family,” said Christian Dahlheim, VW’s head of group sales.
Earlier this year in July, VW’s CEO Herbert Diess had said the carmaker had to change its approach to how it markets its BEVs in China.
In the first half of this year, deliveries stood at just 18,285.
