Volkswagen Launches ID.4 Pro 4MOTION Dual Motor AWD

As electric vehicles (EVs) continue to increase in popularity around the world, one automaker has shared a new variant of one of its best-selling new vehicles.

Volkswagen has added a new all-wheel-drive variant of the ID.4 Pro Performance 4MOTION, featuring a second motor and a power transferring system to further increase traction, according to a press release shared on Thursday.

The new variant, released alongside the ID.4 GTX 4MOTION flagship model, will include an efficient AWD system built for hilly terrain, poor weather and other low-traction environments.

Volkswagen’s Head of Sales and Marketing for the ID car family Sile Bagschik said, “With the ID.4 Pro 4MOTION, we are meeting customer wishes and the demand for an additional model with all-wheel-drive system. It is positioned exactly between the efficient and comfortable ID.4 models with rear-wheel drive and the sporty ID.4 GTX 4MOTION flagship model.”

The new ID.4 Pro 4MOTION has a range of up to 517 kilometres (WLTP) and pre-sales are starting today, with prices in Germany from 49,020 euros ($52,215 USD). The car can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds.

The Volkswagen ID.4 was Sweden’s best-selling battery electric vehicle (BEV) in May.

The automaker is also readying for the release of the Volkswagen ID Buzz, with pre-orders for the electric van showing pricing at 64,581 euros ($68,823 USD).

Volkswagen said last month it expects EV profits to match gas cars sooner than it previously expected.

Additionally, Volkswagen announced an upcoming re-launch of the Scout brand last month as an electric pickup and SUV, starting as soon as 2026.

Volkswagen says it delivered 163,000 ID.4 cars globally in 2021, making it the best-selling electric from the Volkswagen brand and Volkswagen Group.
