Hi! Wanted to share some info given to me by my dealership. I’m sure each is different so take from this what you will.

I emailed my EV specialist about when they might receive the demo car for test drives and he said around the end of the year, as VW is prioritizing allocations of reservations first. He also said he is expecting an update email on Monday.
Part of me was hoping to be able to see it at the dealership first and give it a whirl before mine came in, but it’s not the end of the world if my reservation gets in first. 😁

So part of the California consent decree requires Volkswagen Group to have one SUV on the market before 2019 and another by 2020. The Audi e-tron may have fulfilled the first obligation and end of year delivery of the ID.4 the second.

The consent decree is I think VW model specific. At the VWoA special virtual event on 9/21 to dealers & staff, Scott Keogh made a point of deliveries of the ID4 to meet "legal obligations by EoY '20. I have to check to see if I have the video still in my hard drive, as the link has been pulled of the VW website. I think, I dl'd it.

Regardless, the ID4:1st Ed delivery & sale to the ZEV Tier 1 California market would keep VW in compliance of the settlement. It is a specific model. Technically, the ID4: Pro are a different model & since their arrival is scheduled for 2021, again VW would keep to their legal obligations to the settlement.
