2021 Volkswagen ID.4 Earns EPA-Estimated 250-mile Range

Although delayed slightly, the Volkswagen ID.4 sounds like it still worth the wait


  • This is for the ID.4 1st Edition and ID.4 Pro 82 kWh rear-wheel-drive models.

  • Pricing in the US starts at $39,995 for the ID.4 Pro.

  • ID.4 includes no-cost 3 years of fast charging with Electrify America.


The hotly-anticipated 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 was expected to trickle into the US before the end of 2020, delays involving missing EU emission targets have pushed it back to next March. Meanwhile, the EPA has worked out the range for a few models and it’s good news.

The race to populate the world with EVs not only involves bringing the product to market but the specs must impress. The EPA has now certified that the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition and ID.4 Pro with the 82 kWh battery and rear-wheel-drive configuration will provide an estimated 250 miles of range.

Specifically, the good news is that, for $39,995, 250 miles of range is more than acceptable. However, the AWD dual-motor ID.4s should experience a drop in range and a hike in pricing. Unfortunately, compared to the Tesla Model Y that, at $49,990 in the US, features AWD and delivers all of 326 miles of EPA-estimate range, the news is not quite stellar.

The RWD ID.4 SUVs’ rear AC permanent-magnet synchronous motor produces 201 horsepower and 228 lb.-ft. of torque. At a DC fast-charging station, with 125 kW charging, the ID.4 can go from a five to an 80% charge in about 38 minutes.
