Today Tesla is a recognized leader in the electric car industry, and Elon Musk is the leader of Tesla. This man is one of the most informed in the industry, to his opinion is definitely worth listening to. This is also understood in Volkswagen, otherwise why was it necessary to invite Ilon Musk for a test drive of competitive development?
The video of Elon Musk and the head of Volkswagen AG Herbert Diess testing the electric hatchback ID.3 was published in LinkedIn by the top manager of the German company. The arrival took place at Braunschweig Airport, a place that Volkswagen often uses for its needs. In general, Musk flew to Germany to solve the problems around Tesla (obviously, related to the plant under construction near Berlin), and a short test drive, apparently, happened in passing.
In spite of the fact that the meeting turned out to be short, Herbert Diss managed to tell about the ID.3 and ID.4 electric cars – and there was still some time left for the test drive itself. During the race, the head of Tesla asked some questions about ID.3. Well, his general opinion about the electric car is: “I think that for a non-sports car it is quite good”. The examiner is satisfied, the score has been passed.
Both ID.3 and ID.4 should soon go on wide sale in Europe. ID.4 will also be offered in other regions. For example, this model will be the first Volkswagen “train” in the United States.
