I can hardly breathe - will get my GTX next Thursday at 10.00! 🥳😄

Vehicle Car Speedometer Automotive lighting Motor vehicle


The car arrived at the harbour here yesterday and only need a 7 km transport and some local polishing etc. and then…😀

Will post some pics here of course and some initial impressions.

According to the now awaken rep they’re getting more deliveries now so it may be a good sign for everyone waiting 🙂

Congratulations Tjabo!!
Im still waiting for my id4GTX with Sportseats (no 360 or electric tailgate), but i did get the productionplanning email last week from volkswagen Sweden stating that production has begun, so hopefully they are putting it together right now :)

Interesting news Tjabo & Lars - im swedish too and my dealer earlier in september said no more cars would be planned for production this year, since there was a halt in production of the GTX-line due to supply issues. I ordered in february 2022 and originally included Assi+ package which i later found out was a bottleneck (thanks to this forum and MeinID-forum, no info from dealer about this....). I have asked them to remove Assi+ recently to speeden up

I just view it via the portal. Back in September when I was told that GTX production is halted for the rest of the year (except for cars already confirmed for production), the projected week of manufacture jumped from March 2023 back to week 2.

It has since updated to week 4, which didn't change this week (earlier it seemed to update Sunday/Monday night).

No idea of whether that can be trusted at all. And yes, 360' camera, racecar seats, the works, except no towing hook.

Well, trying to interpret VW’s information (or lack thereof) is really nothing for the inpatient. What I find bizarre is that, even considering shortages of various parts, a company like VW can’t give better, frequent and more reliable updates - and this is 2022, not 1952.

In my case - after a long wait - confirmation that the car was ready for transport from the factory 15 Oct and then… crickets. Then all of a sudden ”the car is unloaded in the Swedish port” and a date for delivery is set 🙄

You know, one thing that would maby kept me off this forum, is a newsletter/feedback from VW themself. Not my local dealer that knows as little as me, but big brother himself. The complete silence and lack off feedback is really annoying

Hey @Tjabo no need for the sad-face.

At worst, it was to be produced mid-March or something, so W02 isn't that bad. I am merely not celebrating the change from W04 to W02 because it's still something like seven weeks before it's to be confirmed - if that W02 is indeed accurate - so I am taking it with all the salt for now.

Sad face due to all the uncertainty and the frequent status changes, that’s how I felt during my long wait.
Good it’s changing in the right direction and hopefully it will continue to do so 😀

Thanks man. I actually don't mind. I kinda resigned to "it will arrive when it does" a month ago with the news of halted production.

Sold one of the two cars in the household, so far zero issues with just one.

Obviously they need to start pushing the projection further or actually lock it in about six weeks or so, but we'll see.. I honestly don't expect to see it before April.

I ordered a GTX in July this year and my car dealer says that the preliminary production date is set to W03 2023 with a production time of about 5 weeks. I got this information at 26th of October. Sounds about the same as some of you also have received.

Yeah, it's booked 4 weeks prior, which is marked as "planning" in the system, then actual manufacturing is only four days if all parts are available.

Which rounds to five weeks.

Seems optimistic taking into account the backlog. Seems many getting the same production/delivery in Jan/feb. Ordered Dec 2021 and Jan/feb 2023. Lets hope its for real and not only the indication when production to resume agan

What did I say, now it's W06.

I'm not going to update every bumb of the projected week here, but this proves my point; it has now been W02-W04-W02-W06 in less than two months. So it really tells very little before it's confirmed.

I'm kinda hoping it gets delayed until the next facelift... 🙄

There must be more to it (delays etc.) than just supply issues. Market priorities, poor logistics, …? Hope everyone waiting for their EV will get more reliable and positive info.

Our new right-wing government suddenly scrapped the climate tax credit for EVs (~ €6500) yesterday and today is the last day to order an EV and get the credit 🙄

Finally, made the payment for my GTX today, hope everything goes fine on delivery day i.e. Thursday 😬😀

There's a big bolded red disclaimer on the page that the info is unreliable. I think it's some kind of "if nothing, postpone guess by two weeks" -thing.

Sucks about the rebate, but I don't need to worry here; ours is only ~2.000 and only for cars that are priced below ~50.000.

So a GTX was never eligible and won't be in the future either.

I'm actually slightly happy that the rebates is gone as we don't have it. And it's not jealousy. The thing is, that the rebate is partially driving up the price, and that affects countries with lesser or non-existent rebates. Can't have too different prices in Sweden and Norway, or everyone gets their car from the cheaper one.

Edit: to elaborate, let's say there's a pricepoint that most buyers consider reasonable for a product. For arguments sake, we'll say that it's 550 of your preferred currency. If countries a, b and c have a tax-break of 150 for said product, the seller can hike the price to around 650-700. Because with the tax-break, it's still 500-550, which falls in-line with the "reasonable pricepoint".

But, if country d doesn't have that tax break, the price there is actually 650-700 - way above the reasonable. Obviously that product won't sell there at all, too expensive.

If a, b, c and d happen to be neighboring EU countries, you can't push the price to that level. You'd loose your whole market in d. But what you can do is maybe push the price to 600. It's really good for a, b and c, and just maybe enough customers in d will bite the bullet and pay the extra. But it still absolutely sucks for the customers in d; they pay bigger prices because of tax rebates in a, b and c.
