Volkswagen’s The electric vehicle for the masses is the 2023 ID.4 SUV, which strikes a good mix of practicality, comfort and good range, allowing drivers to switch from the internal combustion engine.I wish I had more of that driving attitude playfulRear-wheel drive models come with one motor and 201 hp.Choose all wheel drive Add a second motor and increase the power to 295. The maximum range he has is about 275 miles on a single charge, but the base standard trim is cheaper, but combines a more attractive price point with a smaller battery and has a range of just 208 miles. The more expensive Pro models come standard with DC fast charging, making charging relatively quick and easy at public charging stations. The standard trim doesn’t have that feature, so if you can’t install a level 2 charger in your home, we recommend avoiding this model.

New for 2023

Volkswagen is Transferred production of US specification ID.4 For the 2023 model year factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee.of Entry-level standard model lineup This year it has an attractive base price, but uses a smaller 58 kWh battery pack and comes with an estimated 208 miles of range.

The new standard model is the most affordable, but we opt for the mid-range Pro to maximize ID.4 range and unlock the ability to DC fast charge at public charging terminals.Optional dual motor, The all-wheel drive powertrain is also worth an upgrade as it increases horsepower and improves performance.

EV motors, power and performance

The ID.4 puts out 201 horsepower with a single rear-mounted motor, while the dual-motor all-wheel-drive model puts out 295 horsepower.

It also lacks the traditional gut-punching acceleration that electric cars often offer. His rear-wheel-drive ID.4 isn’t slow by conventional compact crossover standards, but in testing he accelerated to 60 miles per hour in 7.6 seconds, far more leisurely than his faster EV competitors. indicates that Opting for a more powerful all-wheel drive model improves the ID.4’s acceleration performance, as evidenced by his 5.4-second jump to 60 mph on the test track. The ID.4’s handling isn’t quite as sharp as other EVs, but we appreciate its smooth, refined ride and quiet cabin.
