On Thursday, Volkswagen of America announced pricing for the 2023 ID.4 electric compact SUV. The MSRP starts at $38,790 (including $1,295 in destination fees) before a potential Federal tax credit of up to $7,500. The enhanced ID.4 offers an all-new battery pack option, upgraded interior and exterior styling, new colors and trim plus fresh wheel designs. Inside, there’s an improved center console.
Arguably, the biggest news for 2023 is that drivers have the option of getting a smaller 62-kWh battery in addition to the familiar 82-kWh pack. That smaller battery is offered in a new entry-level model called the ID.4 Standard that allows for a lower price and provides an estimated range of 208 miles. As for the 82-kWh battery, it should get you 275 miles between charges.
Rear-wheel drive models come with one motor and 201 horsepower, while all-wheel drive adds a second motor and increases output to 295. The more expensive Pro models come standard with DC fast-charging at up to 170 kilowatts.
The Volkswagen ID.4 gains more standard technology for 2023. Features like Intelligent Park Assist, adaptive headlights and a beefy 45-Watt USB-C charger are included, ditto for a 12-inch infotainment screen.
Additionally, more driver-assistance technology is offered for 2023. This includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors and automatic high beams. Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive suite of advanced driver assistance features comes standard on every ID.4 model.
The 2023 ID.4 is built at Volkswagen’s factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the result of an investment from the state of Tennessee to the tune of $800 million. This all-electric SUV will be offered in a variety of trim levels and with either rear- or all-wheel drive. You can look for the updated ID.4 at VW dealers this fall.
