2021 Volkswagen ID.4 Here's a look at Volkswagen's first all-electric SUV

2021 Volkswagen ID.4

2021 Volkswagen ID.4 engine is a natural evolution of the ID Volkswagen models. Crozz Concept ,. The Volkswagen ID.4 is Volkswagen's newest compact SUV. 4 is Volkswagen's first long-range electric vehicle to be sold in the United States and comes after depriving us of our first fully electric vehicle, the VW ID.3 hatchback. When you think about it, Americans love SUVs these days, and Volkswagen wants a slice of the pie with the ID.4 electric SUV

The ID.4 was engineered, loaded and priced to win the hearts of SUV owners who are simply ready to go electric – and fall in love with Volkswagen again,” said Scott Keogh, CEO, Volkswagen Group of America. “It drives like a GTI, it has the packaging of a Tiguan, and the purpose of the Beetle. All the best things about VW in one package

What Is The Volkswagen ID.4?

2021 ID.4 is Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV. The aerodynamically-optimized body is sitting on the German automaker’s newest MEB platform, making it 4.6 inches shorter than an equivalent VW Tiguan. Despite this, the wheelbase is only 0.9 inches shorter than a Tiguan to offer more room for both people and cargo.

To give you an idea, the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is around 1.9 inches lower than a Tiguan, but it’s also half-an-inch wider. The VW ID.4 is strictly a five-seat SUV with 99.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and 30.3 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats. Fold the seats down, and you have 64.2 cubic feet of space to carry larger items.

2021 Volkswagen ID.4: Powertrain

2021 VW ID.4 will initially arrive with a single rear-mounted electric motor and an 82 kWh battery pack. This rear-wheel drive variant is good for 201 horsepower, 228 lb-ft. of torque, and an EPA-estimated 250 miles of driving range

Volkswagen ID.4 has an electrical architecture that supports both AC and DC fast charging capabilities. It has a standard 11 kW onboard charger that replenishes 33 miles of range in an hour of charging. Hook it up to a level 2 charger, though, and you can achieve a full charge in around seven or eight hours

However, if you hook it up to a DC fast-charging station, you can top up the batteries from five to 80 percent in 38 minutes. And if you can’t stop thinking about range anxiety, hear this: VW is offering three years complimentary of fast charging with Electrify America! If you’re looking for additional incentives to choose the VW ID.4 over other electric SUVs like the Kia Niro EV, Tesla Model Y, or the Hyundai Kona Electric, three years of fast charging should do the trick

Additionally, Volkswagen ID.4 is introducing a dual-motor version of the ID.4, but it won’t be arriving until late 2021 at the earliest. Volkswagen promises a combined output of 302 horsepower for this all-wheel drive ID.4

Standard VW IQ.Drive

All ID.4 variants come standard with autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian monitoring, blind-spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, high beam control, and park distance control, among many others. Additionally, the ID.4 has six airbags (with side curtain airbags) and electronic stability control

2021 Volkswagen ID.4: Pricing and Availability

What we really like about the 2021 VW ID.4 is the aggressive pricing strategy.

The VW ID.4 has a base price of $39,995 for the rear-wheel drive ID.4 Pro (before considering up to $7,500 in federal tax credits). This particular model will be available in early 2021
