Can you share the terms presented to you?I went to the dealer in Florida two days ago to receive my ID4 ordered on Sep 23rd 2020 at 1pm ( 2 hours after the launch). The car was beautifully clean waiting for me.
For my surprise, the lease “package” presented to me was about U$ 200 per month higher than a lease of another VW vehicle of same price. All other conditions being the same .
Basically, about U$ 7,000 “premium” to be able to lease this car instead of paying cash or buying another model.
It was a major deception, mainly having waited for over 6 months and having spent the last two months without a car waiting for the ID4. During this time many times I received messages and advertisements mentioning the aprox price and lease values.
We have had Volkswagens since I was born.
My father had the same 1966 beetle for 19 years.
I have had 3 beetles, 2 Santanas, 2 Paratis,3 Passats, 1 Santana Quantum, one Santana Executivo , one GTS and more recently the Atlas.
All VW products I had here in the US and in Brazil.
My major in college was electrical engineering. The anticipation of having my first electric car and being the first ID4 delivered by my dealer of choice was great. A fantastic feeling, shared with family , friends and the salesperson, another friend of years.
The moment the numbers did not make sense this week felt like someone destroyed the VW logo right in front of me. I feel terrible. All the preparation , for this? I always thought we were together into the future with this innovation. You built if for me and I would drive it for you (and pay for the use, of course), I thought. But , I feel that for some reason VW prefers to give the car to someone else that will pay more for the same loan. As simple as that.
