2021 Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV Starts At $39,995 Before Credits In Q1

The all-new 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV will first be offered with an 82kWh (gross) battery and a rear-mounted AC permanent-magnet synchronous motor with 201 horsepower with an estimated range of 250 miles with a full charge on the EPA cycle. An electric all-wheel-drive variant with 302 horsepower will follow later in 2021. The ID.4 comes with three years of fast charging with Electrify America at no additional cost and can be charged with both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) fast-charging capability. The 11 kW onboard charger allows the ID.4 to charge the battery 33 miles in about one hour, and charges to full in around seven and a half hours at a home or public Level 2 charger. At a DC fast-charging station, with 125 kW charging, the ID.4 can go from five to 80 percent charged in about 38 minutes. The ID.4 starts at $39,995 for the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 Pro (available in the first quarter of 2021), before a potential Federal tax credit of up to $7,500 is applied. With those credits, the entry price of ID.4 is on par with the 2021 Tiguan SEL.  For qualified customers through Volkswagen Credit, the monthly lease payment for a 36-month lease with 10,000 miles a year, is $379 per month with $3,579 due at signing, excluding tax, title, license, options and dealer fees. Starting later in 2021, the ID.4 AWD Pro ($43,675) will be available. In 2022 when production starts in the U.S., Volkswagen plans on offering a localized version of the ID.4 priced around $35,000.
