EPA Confirms Volkswagen ID.4 AWD’s Range

Volkswagen has announced that the initial range estimations for the upcoming dual motor, all-wheel-drive versions of the ID.4 were officially confirmed by EPA.
The Volkswagen ID.4 AWD Pro has an EPA range (Combined) of 249 miles (401 km), while the ID.4 AWD Pro S trim is 240 miles (386 km). All the ID.4 in the U.S. are equipped with the 82 kWh battery (about 77 kWh usable) and can recharge at up to 125 kW.
The range difference between the AWD and RWD versions is about 4%. Not much. That’s because the additional 80 kW front motor is an asynchronous type (without magnets), which does not add much loss when idle. The main workhorse is the rear 150 kW permanent magnet synchronous electric motor.
In Europe, the ID.4 AWD is sold as the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX and it’s quite efficient.
Let’s see the comparison:

The price difference between the AWD and RWD is $3,680. That makes the Volkswagen ID.4 AWD Pro the least expensive electric all-wheel-drive car on the market.
A very important element of the ID.4’s competitiveness is the eligibility for the $7,500 federal tax credit..
Additionally, Volkswagen adds three years of unlimited charging at Electrify America DC fast chargers at no additional cost.
