    VW says its Tesla Model 3-fighter will be $7,000 to $8,000 cheaper

    [​IMG]

    VW has been quick to compare its upcoming first all-electric vehicle built from the ground up, codenamed I.D. Concept, to Tesla’s Model 3.

    Specs-wise, it appears to be competitive with the Model 3 on paper, but they never gave a precise price range until now. more…

    The level of disingenuousness from VW remains a a watch out. :rolleyes:

    Also, I doubt this car is truly a 'Model 3-fighter' yet unfortunately no one on the internet seems to be able to control the urge... :D

        "2019 release"

        By that time who knows what the Model 3 will look like, be equipped with, cost, etc.

        Getting really tired of all the BS the major car manufacturers are spewing out. How 'bout you actually put something on the road before you start knocking Tesla.

        Over it.

          Smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors and fuzzy logic. The only thing accurate from VW is "we take Tesla seriously". Tesla really has the other automakers completely intimidated. Tesla is a serious challenge to them and they are putting out pictures of "concept cars" with inflated specs to try to stem the tide. They are playing right into EM's hands - the more the merrier. Why should EM spend money on advertising when the other automakers are spending money to advertise his car for him? BRILLIANT! I have to laugh at the VW design. Recognize those door openers, how about those Unique WCs, seen those before, is that an all glass roof? C'mon VW stop the 'Fahrvergnügen', pull up your pants, and put up or shut up!

                I also get tired of reading about them building this and building that. And then they all magically have better numbers than tesla.

                  And then, the whole automobile industry (excluding Tesla) writes the Chinese leader to lower their new EV requirements. :D Hypocrisy in it's highest form.
