Volkswagen Has «Massive Difficulties» With ID.3 Software, Previews ID.7 Bulli

Tierr@_de_N@die: It was no ever easy for automakers to deal with high-tech software, but the electric car's world seems to be a real nightmare as far as technology concerns new launches.

According to a report by Germany’s Manager Magazin, Volkswagen is experiencing “massive difficulties” with the software for its ID.3 electric sedans. Apparently, the first 10,000 cars built do not have over-the-air update capability — a critical component of any modern electric vehicle and something pioneered by Tesla as far back as 2012. No automaker has genuinely followed Tesla’s lead on this so far, but there’s a lot of chatter they will with coming EVs, like the ID lineup.
