The all-electric Volkswagen ID.4 SUV has gone on sale in the UK, with a 310 mile range and priced at £37,800 after the plug-in vehicle grant. Availability of four-wheel drive will come at a later date.
The ID.4 is being launched as a limited-run 1ST Edition with a range of pre-configured trim levels to follow later in the year. The ID.4 1ST Edition will cost £37,800 after the plug-in vehicle grant is applied, and is expected to arrive in dealerships during March.
The ID.4 is the second model in the ID. family and the first to be sold globally. From today customers in the UK will be able to place their orders for the ID.4 1ST Edition.
The ID.4 1ST Edition has a WLTP range of 310 miles from its 77 kWh (net) battery capacity. It also benefits from rapid charging compatibility of up to 125 kW, with the ability to add up to 199 miles of range in just 30 minutes. With 204 PS of power and 310 Nm of torque instantly available, the rear-wheel drive ID.4 1ST completes the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 8.5 seconds before maximum speed is reached at 99 mph.
The ID.4 also comes with the Volkswagen brand’s high-voltage battery warranty of eight years or 100,000 miles.
Like the Volkswagen ID.3, the ID.4 is manufactured at the Zwickau facility in Germany, with production of the car being carbon-neutral. In time, five factories on three continents will be producing the new electric SUV. Aside from Zwickau, the Chinese plants of Anting and Foshan will commence production before the end of the year. The production launch in Chattanooga (USA) and at the German plant of Emden are planned for 2022.
The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s first electric vehicle that can be fitted with an optional tow bar, suitable for trailers weighing up to 1,000kg.
