Volkswagen unveils the ID.4

  • A 1st Edition model will launch by the end of the year, priced at $45,190, with other variants available in the first quarter of 2021 starting at $41,190
  • An AWD version will be available by the end of 2021 priced starting at $44,890, and VW says a less expensive base version ("around $35,000") will go on sale in 2022 with a smaller battery pack.

Volkswagen ID.4

The 2021 ID.4 was unveiled today, priced starting at $41,190 with an EPA estimated range of 250 miles. Early adopters of VW's EV offering can shell out $45,190 for the 1st Edition that will go on sale before the end of the year, while everyone else will have a choice of three trim levels that will go on sale in the first quarter of 2021. The ID.4 will be available in both rear- and all-wheel-drive variants, with the latter not available until later in 2021

Its closest relative in the VW lineup, of course, is the Tiguan. The ID.4 is 4.6 inches shorter than the Tiguan but has a nearly identical wheelbase, 0.9 inch shorter at 108.9 inches. At 64.4 inches high, it's almost two inches lower in rear-wheel-drive form than the Tiguan and a half-inch wider. VW says it belongs "squarely in the middle" of the already crowded compact-SUV segment. Its most likely competitors, especially once the lower-priced models come out, will be the Kia Niro EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric, but once federal incentives are factored in, the Toyota RAV4 Prime or the Mazda CX-5 could also be considered competitors for the ID.4 shopper

Volkswagen ID.4 Versions

The base trim level, starting at $41,190, will include a 10.0-inch infotainment system display, 19-inch wheels, heated seats and steering wheel, and VW’s IQ Drive driver-assistance package, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking, pedestrian and blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning

For the first year, all of the ID.4s will be rear-wheel drive with 201 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque. The 82.0-kWh battery pack has 77.0 kWh available for daily charging. The reserve is meant to keep the range at the same point longer, with the dead cells being replaced by cells held in reserve. It's in line with what Audi, also part of the VW Group, is doing with the e-tron
