The novelty of the German concern ID.3 should be presented on the electric car market in the summer of 2020. But the model had not yet seen the light of day, when critical failures were found in the software. According to Manager Magazine, they can significantly affect the start of car sales.
The main cause of problems is haste. The Volkswagen ID.3 had been announced ahead of time, although there were still many flaws in the development of the model. Pre-orders for cars have been collected since May 2019.
Confident in the impeccability of the finished electric car, the company's management, led by Herbert Diess, said that the new product will be available to customers in the summer. The delay in launching sales would not have been so dire if it had not been for the solemn announcement in front of the German Chancellor, the Prime Minister of Saxony and other high-ranking officials.
Not wanting to fall face down in the mud, the management of the concern attracted about ten thousand professionals to work on the project. The main task is to make the elements of the auto system work synchronously. At the moment, the electronics test constantly gives an error about conflicting hardware.
The problem is aggravated by the fact that the assembly of the new item has already been launched. As a result, there are more than 10 hatchbacks with a system failure in the warehouse of the main plant in Zwickau. To troubleshoot the company will have to fork out for re-equipment of finished products.
