Volkswagen is finally ready to introduce to the world the ID.4 – a fully electric SUV that produces zero carbon emissions and is produced through a carbon-neutral process, reports Volkswagen.
With its second electric vehicle ever, Volkswagen is targeting the most sought-after vehicle segment in both the U.S. and China – SUVs. The veteran auto-maker’s first E-SUV went into production back in August 2020.
The ID.4 features a modern, almost sporty exterior, and a spacious, passenger-focused interior with a ton of cargo space. Instead of physical knobs and buttons, operational control of the vehicle lies with two displays – a touchscreen and Volkswagen’s proprietary ID.Light.
Let’s talk about what’s under the hood: The ID.4 packs 201 Horsepower and can go 0-100 in under 8.5 seconds with a top speed of 160 km/h. The E-SUV is powered by a 77 kWh battery that allows for a range of 250 miles and can be charged at any 125-kW DC fast charging station in under 40 minutes.
The ID.4 brings the cargo space, safety, and leg room of traditional SUVs to an electrically driven, zero-emission vehicle, and does so beautifully. Even Tesla CEO Elon Musk was interested to see what Volkswagen would bring to the EV market, and the vehicle manufacturer has certainly delivered.
“The ID.4 is an emotional all-rounder which will impress many customers with its efficient electric drive, generous amount of space, modern assist systems and powerful design,” said Volkswagen CEO Ralf Brandstätter.
With a price tag of $39,995 USD plus destination fee, the Volkswagen ID.4 Pro will be available starting in Q1 of 2021.
Later next year, the dual-motor ID.4 AWD Pro will be available at $44,890 USD, then later in 2022, a base ID.4 will launch at $36,000 USD, made in the USA at the company’s Chattanooga plant in Tennessee. The ID.4 will receive three years of included Electrify America DC fast charging, with the network owned by Volkswagen.
