I've got email today from VW. My 2022 Pro S, now becomes 2023 and will be made in Chattanooga not Germany as the dealer said. It is exactly 3 months after I reserved on May 7, 22. The price will be more for sure.For my locked order (reserved 11/14; locked 4/11) -- I haven't had any communication about changes. For my 2nd order (placed at the end of June) -- when I logged onto the owner's portal, I was politely told to upgrade to a 2023 model--which I did. But I took a major shift and reserved the 2023 ID.4 S which has the 62 kWh battery. The ID.4 S seems more luxurious than the base model with leatherette seats, power tailgate, fancy headlights, rain sensing wipers, etc.--and it is $7K less than my original reservation. I think it some ways it will be like a clone of my Leaf (same silver color, same black interior) but that's okay. My husband loves the Leaf and he doesn't like driving a brand new car. The ID.4 was always supposed to be my car so now maybe that will happen!
I still have my original reservation (sitting at 03 status, no changes there) so now it is a race to see which car appears first and what I decide to do. Options are always good!
