I got an email this morning wanting me to "lock" the order, and pay an additional 400$ deposit. It now says: Now that your order is locked, production can begin. We have started manufacturing your all-new ID.4.You will be notified when production is complete. Still no clear idea as to the timeline right now. Some people have estimated March delivery dates - to meet that, I would guess that the cars would need to leave the factory sometime in Feb.
