Scott Q, CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, said Volkswagen hopes the ID.4 will have as big an impact in the United States as the brand's most iconic model, the classic Beetle, once. Volkswagen sold nearly five million Beetles in the United States between 1949 and 1977.

ID.4 pricing will start around $ 40,000, and do not include the widely available $ 7,500 federal tax credit for purchasing an electric vehicle. The tax deduction will result in a total purchase price of approximately $ 32,500. In 2022, after ID.4 begins production in the US, VW expects the starting price to drop to around $ 35,000. However, for the time being, the SUV will be manufactured in Germany.

The ID.4 starting price is higher than that of a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V, but comparable to the well-equipped versions of each of the best-selling SUVs.

Volkswagen intends for the ID.4 to compete directly against those gasoline-powered SUVs. Volkswagen isn't just going after customers looking specifically for an electric vehicle, but for those looking for a small SUV in general, said Keogh. Among owners of small SUVs, 30% have said they will consider an electric model for their next purchase, he said

The ID.4 is a little smaller than the Volkswagen Tiguan, the brand's gasoline-powered compact SUV, but it has similar interior space, according to VW. That's possible because the ID'4's electric motors and batteries take up less space than the Tiguan's gas engine and transmission

The ID.4 will initially be available in 201-horsepower rear-wheel drive versions. Special "First Edition" models, with a $44,000 starting price, will have an estimated driving range of 250 miles, according to VW. In 2021, VW will start selling a 302-horsepower all-wheel-drive model.
