2022 Volkswagen ID.4 Gets Range Boost Among Other changes

A less expensive $35,000 Volkswagen ID.4 is also in the works

  • Improved charging is also on the list of updates for 2022.

  • US production for the 2023 ID.4 begins later this year.

Volkswagen‘s first ground-up electric vehicle sold in North America, the ID.4, has proven to be a popular option for North American EV adopters. Priced right and loaded with plenty of features including a dual-motor configuration, demand remains strong for the small SUV. Despite being only a year old, Volkswagen’s already making some improvements.

Range is currently of up to 400 km on a single charge for the ID.4 Pro RWD version. Volkswagen has not disclosed how much farther the ID.4 will on a charge however a 30-40km boost sounds about right. Car and Driver confirm that the onboard charger capacity will grow from being 125 kilowatts capable to 135 kilowatts.

For the 2023 model year, the ID.4 will be built at VW’s plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The battery supplier will change from LG to SKI however no related changes are reported. One element that will evolve for the North American model is a revised more “American-style” centre console. What that means remains to be seen.

Finally, VW of America CEO Scott Keogh notes that they are working on a less expensive version that should hit the market for around $35,000 US sometime in 2023.
