New Volkswagen has been made illegal in Germany

The highest court in Hamburg, Germany, has ruled in favor of Volkswagen that car dealers are not allowed to sell anything. And not ID.6 at all.

You can buy a Volkswagen ID.6. But that requires you to travel all the way to China for one. In Germany, in any case, it must not be at all.

Or rather: The highest court in Hamburg has given Volkswagen the right that car dealers are not allowed to sell the car in the country.

The ID.6 is only type-approved according to Chinese regulations, and since these do not correspond 1:1 to the European ones, the court has issued an injunction that makes the car illegal in Germany.

A Volkswagen dealer otherwise thought he had found a big scam by parallel importing the ID.6 from Volkswagen in China. In other words, outside the parent group in Germany.

This is written by Automobilwoche .

But that kind of thing doesn't work. Not even legally. The new sentence means that an already existing ban is extended. Whether it can ever be repealed is doubtful.

Volkswagen has never had plans to sell the ID.6, which looks like an overgrown ID.4, in Europe. And that probably won't change on top of the new verdict. Back in February, the German car brand actually asked the authorities to crush the cars. Read more about it here .

If the authorities end up having the cars, which have landed in Germany before the ban, crushed, it will not be the first time that such drastic measures have been used.

Recently, a celebrity has been convicted in a particularly serious case of fraud with cars. The sentence means that the authorities will crush the man's converted Porsche 911 Turbo. Read more about it here .
