Luxury cars are becoming commonplace in Nigeria and the 2023 Volkswagen ID.6 Grand SUV is the latest addition to the fleet. Volkswagen is determined to keep up with the future-oriented topics of digitalisation, new business models and autonomous driving. The ID. family, a new stand-alone product range, has expanded the brand’s traditional product portfolio with the compact ID.3, the SUV ID.4, and now the fully electric ID.6. The ID.6 is Volkswagen’s entry into the booming SUV sector.
The ID.8 is an all-new model from Volkswagen and it is currently the largest of their ID line of vehicles. As of the time of this report, there is only one of these SUVs in Nigeria, and it is fully electric, which means you don’t have to worry about fuel and its subsidy. The cost to purchase this ride and have it delivered to your home is 74 million naira.
However, before making the purchase, we advise that you read our article on “How to Use an Electric Vehicle in Nigeria” to gain a deeper understanding of how electric cars work. This 2023 Volkswagen ID.6 is fully electric, so it’s important to be well-informed before making a purchase decision.
Three rows of seats put the ID.8 into contention with the more expensive Tesla Model X and the Rivian R1S as a family-friendly SUV with an all-electric powertrain. All models will likely come with a panoramic glass roof and will offer a sizeable 12.0-inch infotainment touchscreen for much of the car’s controls.
The 2023 Volkswagen ID.6 was produced in the two plants Anting and Foshan in China, Volkswagen is expediting the electrification offensive on the way to becoming the global leader in e-mobility. The foundation of this is the introduction of a new MEB car each year, aiming to achieve high volumes and cover all sectors.
This emphasises the brand’s target of at least 70 per cent of cars sold in Europe being electric by 2030, and at least 50 per cent in North America and China.
