After the information yes late generation of Golf, there are new and not really great news from the Volkswagen Group.
Although there are no official confirmations, according to the information provided by The Brussels Times, the delivery of batteries for the electric models of the Audi e-tron series does not take place as planned. This is why the launch of the e-tron Sportback 2020 is delayed.

In addition to the missing batteries, late and electric engines from the Audi factory in the Hungarian Gera, which was hit by a recent strike by workers.
Because of all this, the plant operates six hours a day instead of the planned eight, and soon the factory's working week will be reduced to four days.
Now, the delivery of the first fully electric Audi, instead of 60 days, waiting for 6-7 months, which is "not a fantastic waiting time for the new Audi," said the Belgian office of this manufacturer.
