VW EV’s soon but long wait in Oz

ev graph - cleantechnicaVW new model ID is mass market EV, similar in size to Golf, scheduled for first release in Germany 2018. Expectations are better performance and price than Tesla Model 3 and cheaper, equivalent price of Golf diesel. As with July 2017 Golf, new models  always get new electronic whizz bangs, touch screens etc but even new petrol engines will be saved for other markets. Because our standards are so low, Australia is a dumping ground for other car brands low spec engines and low car prices, so market share for VW and others is undermined by cheapness. It will take many of us to hustle our leaders to get with 21st century.
