The first units will arrive before the year is out.
The ID.4 gets a few tweaks for 2023 as well.
If you’re shopping for a Volkswagen ID.4, you’re probably a little depressed. In fact, that’s probably the case with any EV at the moment, frankly. However, if the ID.4’s caught your eye, a few entrepreneurial owners are attempting to flip their used EVs for a massive profit, but they hardly seem worth it. Unfortunately, rates for new ones are huge making them far less affordable.
Perhaps all of this will stabilize in a few short months when the first batch of Chattanooga, TN. built Volkswagen ID.4 finally arrive in Canada. If anything, VW’s updated the electric SUV with a number of upgrades that might appease those who’ve waited over a year and a half for their ID.4.
Changes include gloss black highlights on the front bumpers and available illuminated VW emblems. A few new wheel designs along with up to eight available paint colors (with optional black roof) will help differentiate the 2023 model year from the 2021 and 2022. The cabin will also gain a number of new features including a standard 12-inch infotainment display and a nicer more luxurious trim.
On the base $43,995 Standard models, the dash receives distinctive stitching in addition to new fabrics. Its single electric rear-mounted motor produces 201hp and 229 lb-ft of torque, is powered by a new 62kWh battery, good for 336 km of range, and is capable of a 140-kW DC fast-charging rate. The ID.4 Pro RWD continues with an 82-kWh battery that allows for an estimated range of 443 km. ID.4 Pro AWD models add an asynchronous motor to the front axle, for a total of 295hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, and deliver an estimated range of 410 km. Both Pro models offer a 170-kW DC fast-charging speed, an improvement over the 2022 model year version.
The optional Statement package returns however some of its content has been revised due to global part shortages. The information is outlined here.
