Sharing is caring!

Volkswagen opens the controls for the regular range of its new compact SUV 100% electric: the ID.4. Prices start at 46,92 USD, a bonus not deducted.

Unveiled in September 2020 and marketed in the wake of special launch versions called 1st and 1st Max (charged from 57,153 USD, a bonus not deducted). The German manufacturer opens the orders for the regular range. And this one is more than provided…

Volkswagen offers its compact SUV with two different battery sizes: the “Pure” and “Pure Performance” versions carry a 52 kWh battery and have up to 345 km of range while the “Pro Performance” model benefits from a 77 kWh battery with up to 520 km of range.

Three power levels are also on the menu: 148 hp on the “Pure” version, 170 hp for the “Pure Performance” and 204 hp for the “Pro Performance” version. In this last configuration, the most powerful, the ID.4 reaches 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds. All variants offer the same top speed capped at 160 km/h.

Later this year will also be launched a four-wheel-drive model with an additional engine at the front for a total power that should be 306 horsepower and 450 Nm. This version will be called ID.4 GTX.

In the meantime, and to make it even more difficult to choose customers, Volkswagen has a range of seven levels of equipment, six of which are for individuals: “City,” “Style,” “Life,” “Family,” “Tech” and “Max.” The first two are only available with the small 52 kWh battery. The others with the 77 kWh.

The entry-level “City” features LED projectors, a 10-inch central screen with GPS navigation, adaptive cruise control, front seats, and a heated leather steering wheel or an induction charger.

Above, “Style” adds the IQ projectors. Light – Matrix LED, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless “Keyless Access Advanced” aperture, and closing system, and a rearview camera.

“Life” wins 19-inch alloy wheels and a Silver Style outdoor pack and black roof, while “Family” stands out with a panoramic glass roof and 3-zone automatic air conditioning.

“Tech” fills up with a 12-inch central screen, augmented reality head-up display, message-based front seats, the 360-degree “Area View” camera system, and the ‘Travel Assist’ driving assistant with ‘Side Assist.

Finally, the high-end “Max” adds a controlled damping system and a heat pump.
