The price increase for the different models of the German brand will now be directly linked to their CO2 emissions. Electric models will naturally be spared.
Usually, the German group replicates inflation to justify the increase in its prices. This year, this increase will be directly impacted by the CO2 emission levels of the different models.
Thus, the increases practiced by the company will be different depending on the model. The most polluting will see their price increase more than the most virtuous. Moreover, Volkswagen does not wish to integrate the new electric models in this annual price increase.
The ID.3 and ID.4 should therefore not suffer any price increase. The prices of the most polluting versions could increase by 4% according to a dealer of the brand. For the moment, Volkswagen did not wish to comment or give more details on this new price list which will be presented next month.
In 2020, the prices of the Volkswagen range had increased by an average of 2%. The increase will average 1.5% this year, probably offset by the arrival of new electric models in the catalog.
