    Basically it sort of confirms what some have suspected - back in Nov, they pushed back the ID.4 launch so they could deliver cars with updated software. The ID.3 that they delivered in 2020 were pushed out mainly to reduce EU fines.

    Some customers in European countries will be getting ID.4 in March. Some people in Europe are able to obtain a "Build week" - the week during which the car actually comes off the line. Nothing firm for the U.S. market - they just say "Spring", and nobody in the U.S. knows anything about build weeks.

    And then in the youtube comments, people are saying that there is evidence that US ID.4 are already in the U.S. The picture shows what looks like US spec ID.4 1st, and people believe this to be taken at the port in Rhode Island. All based on a press photo:

    But nobody can say with a lot of certainty. Maybe they are waiting for software updates? Maybe waiting for customs? Maybe these are dealer demo cars? We really don't know.

  4. I've heard there's a problem with microchip availability -- not sure if that's correct as I haven't looked it up myself. I'm in Canada and recently put down a deposit on the ID.4 that the salesperson said would be out in a couple of months......but the paperwork says "expected delivery July 31".

    There are apparently now many cars in multiple ports.

    The only roadblock is the 2.1 software update, but customers in the U.K. and Germany are reporting that that basically becomes available in the next few days. A handful of people are getting emails from their dealers with actual VIN numbers and delivery dates.

    Your ID.4 is almost home. Your ID.4 is in the country and making its way to Dover, DE. Your dealer will contact you when your vehicle is ready for pickup.
