Complete understandable. But I specifically asked about the delivery time of an ID.4 GTX in January 2022. I was told it would be 12 months (I went for the ID.5 GTX for that reason - it was supposed to be a five month delay only, as it was a new model and the shop had one in cue already).
This was before Putler attacked Ukraine, and two days after the attack, Volkswagen again informed everyone waiting that there would be delays.
In light of that, I don't understand why you were promised a car in ~9 months. If people ordering in January were supposed to wait until, well, the next January, why would ordering in May mean an August to December delivery?
