Volkswagen’s ID.4 production line in the United States has been relocated to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the 2023 model year. This year, we’ve added the more affordable Standard model to the portfolio. It has an estimated range of 208 miles on a single charge, but its battery pack is just 58 kWh in size.

An initial list price of $40,760 is set for the 2022 Volkswagen ID.4. For about $50,000, you can get a fully-loaded version.

The ID.4 produces 201 horsepower from its single rear-mounted motor, while the all-wheel-drive variant generates 295 hp. There is a hefty 2700-pound maximum towing capacity. While the ID.4’s most aggressive regenerative mode may help recapture energy when slowing the vehicle, it still lacks the typical one-pedal driving that EV drivers have learned to cherish.

The ID.4 can compete with other electric SUVs like the Hyundai Kona Electric and the Kia Niro EV thanks to its optional 77.0-kWh battery pack, which can power the vehicle for up to 275 miles before needing to be recharged. But the Tesla Model Y’s estimated range by the EPA is 330 miles, thus VW’s estimate falls short.
