2021 Volkswagen ID.4 AWD pricing revealed, no significant loss in range

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 AWD now has a price tag. Starting at $44,875, adding a second electric motor will cost you $3,685 more versus an equivalent single-motor ID.4.

With the E-GMP platform’s ability to DC charge at 400- and 800-volts, and an estimated range of 300 miles in the single-motor version with the 77.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, there’s no denying this crossover’s main bogey. With that said […]

Volkswagen ID.6: Seven seats, no exports for China’s Volkswagen ID.6 twins

Yet another Volkswagen electric car that will never be seen in North American showrooms has made its debut in China, and the shame of it is that the ID.6 would probably work here. The 192-inch (4.9-meter) ID.6 will be built as a twin set in China, with the ID Crozz coming out of the northern […]
