BEIJING -- Volkswagen Group delivered 5,800 VW ID series electric vehicles in China in July, up from almost 3,000 the month before, it said on Thursday.
VW has a China sales target for ID series EVs of between 80,000 and 100,000 this year, depending on chip deliveries, and is sticking with that forecast, a company spokesperson told Reuters.
The automaker is building the VW ID4 and ID6 crossovers at two Chinese joint ventures. It will also roll out ID3 compact hatchbacks later this year.
Company sources told Reuters in June that Volkswagen's ID series - the backbone of its EV ambitions to overtake Tesla in 2025 - is off to a worryingly slow start in China.
VW Group CEO Herbert Diess said last month it must change its approach to how it sells EVs in China.
Local EV rival Nio delivered 7,931 vehicles in July, while Xpeng sold 8,040 EVs.
