2021 Volkswagen ID.4 1st. Edition, 1st. drive in Miami


The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV and the brand’s first global EV.

Built on Volkswagen’s MEB electric vehicle architecture—the modular electric drive matrix—it marries the strengths of a purpose-built EV with performance, packaging and value, features that have marked the brand for decades.

The Volkswagen ID.4 competes in the world’s largest market segment—compact SUVs—and is currently produced in Germany and China; in the future, it will also be assembled in the United States.

At launch in the U.S., the 2021 ID.4 offers an 82kWh (gross) battery and a rear-mounted AC permanent-magnet synchronous motor with 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. The EPA-certified range for the Pro S (Statement) and 1st Edition (sold out) models is 250 miles.

The ID.4 offer structure is simple—four trims and one package. The entry-level Pro model is well equipped, with features typically found on higher trims baked in for added value. Pricing starts at $39,995 MSRP, before a potential Federal tax credit of up to $7,500.

Starting later in 2021, the ID.4 AWD Pro will be available with an MSRP of $43,675.

A Gradient Package is available for $1,500, and includes larger wheels and further design differentiators. AWD Pro S models will be priced from $48,175 on arrival later this year.

A special ID.4 1st Edition model was available at launch, and has since sold out. Priced at $43,995, this rear-wheel-drive model combined Pro S and Gradient features with a handful of unique design elements.
