New Volkswagen ID.4 model eligible for the Plug-in Vehicle Grant

The Volkswagen ID.4 is now available in a new ‘City’ variant which qualifies for the Plug-in Vehicle Grant, bringing the car’s price down to £32,150 in Pure trim.

There’s also a Style variant, with both models offering the option of ‘Pure’ and ‘Pure Performance’ battery and motor specifications, with Pure delivering 52 kWh and 148 PS, and Pure Performance having 170 PS, with the same 52 kWh net battery capacity. The 52 kWh battery enables up to 213 miles of range across both City specifications, and up to 211 miles in Style variants (WLTP, combined).

These latest trims fit below the existing ones in the ID.4 line-up. The City Pure Performance is priced at £36,030, the Style Pure at £38,150 and the Style Pure Performance at £39,530. Beyond those are the ID.4 Life, Family and Max models, with the 204 PS and 77 kWh ‘Pro Performance’ powertrain.

The ID.4 ‘Pure’ and ‘Pure Performance’ specifications can both add up to 137 miles of range from a 100 kW rapid charger in 30 minutes, while a 7.2 kW home charger takes around 7 hours and 30 minutes to take the battery from 0 to 100%. Charging to 80% from a DC, CCS charge point takes 38 minutes.

The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX, offering more performance and all-wheel drive, will open for order to UK customers soon.
