ID.4 Specs & Range

The Volkswagen ID.4 is built upon Volkswagen engineers' universal EV set-up, known as the MEB electric propulsion platform. As scheduled, VW has slated to release four variants of the ID.4 nameplate with a rumored GTX model as the top of the line example. The one on sale now is the 1st Edition. The other three will be revealed soon. All ID.4 models will favor a Rear-Wheel Drive electric motor, with an optional forward electric motor providing eAWD. For the first years, all variants will have Rear-Wheel Drive and produce 201 horsepower. Lastly, the ID.4 has a diminutive .26 drag coefficient, making it one of the most aerodynamic SUVs in the market.

 Volkswagen vehicle designers say the ID.4 Pro S and 1st Edition have an estimated range of 250 miles1. When you consider that the VW ID.4 also boasts a fleet-footed charge cycle from 0-80% in about forty minutes at a DC fast charger, any road-trip is now achieved with the same ease as an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle2. Simple wall charging and AC charging will also be available with the correct cables. The national network of charge-points is 16K+ locations, growing by the day. The ID.4 is meant to be a long-range cruiser that can be "topped-up" while you are at lunch. Why only about 40 minutes to 80% charge, you might ask? To avoid any possible risk of overcharge, the remaining 20% takes about 30-40 minutes to go through a balanced (slow) charging cycle. In other words, the battery for your VW ID.4 charges the same way as you would pour a glass of water. You fill it to almost full pretty fast and then slow down for the rest of the way as to not spill.

In terms of features, you can expect to find advanced driver assistance as with any available Volkswagen model such as forward and rear collision alert, brake assistance, lane assistance, adaptive cruise, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and IQ.DRIVE technology. IQ.DRIVE is offers hands-on, semi-autonomous capability that will transform your driving experience.

VW ID.4 Dimensions and Interior

 Built on the MEB platform, the ID.4 will have a wheelbase of 108.9 inches. Outwardly, a recent test-drive ID.4 was lower, wider, and shorter than the 2nd generation Tiguan. The cabin also offers an open-architecture feel thanks to powertrain components being tucked nicely out of the way. The cabin is freed up for maximum passenger space and comfort. Futurists will love the trifecta of information displays. A generously sized 10-inch infotainment is pointed at the driver for all connectivity needs, and a 5.3-inch cluster is standard. The ID.4 makes a 12-inch driver information center available, right alongside an augmented reality heads-up display system that reportedly uses the entire windshield.

Sport-minded driving enthusiasts will love the configurable driver modes, precision handling, and disco-dance-floor-carving maneuverability of the ID.4. Thanks to its super-low center of gravity, this SUV has minimal body roll and is very composed zipping through town or cruising on the highway. The VW ID.4 has a nearly perfect weight distribution and is supported in forward corners by MacPherson struts, whereas a multi-link rear with adaptive damping capability is also available. 19-inch wheels will be standard, and upgrades will be available through 20-inches. All passengers will enter through their respective lateral opening door, and stadium-like seating will enhance visibility for all and augment the SUV-feel.

"Never before has an electric vehicle been conceived with such a global outlook," says VW C.O.O. Ralf Brandstatter. In fact, VW has committed more dollars ($12.3 Billion, if you really want to know) to production capacity than any other manufacturer out there. The best part is that this revolutionary vehicle will be available to anyone that wants it. Unlike other EV vehicles with price tags soaring to $95K, the ID.4 can be had for as little as a third of that figure. Not to mention that there will also be a $7500 federal tax credit3.
