2023 VW ID4 EV starts at $38,790

Volkswagen of America has detailed its US-made versions of the 2023 ID4 electric compact crossover, which will come standard with a smaller 62-kWh-hour battery pack and start at $38,790, including shipping and any federal or other Tax credit is not included.

Along with its smaller battery, the base model rear-wheel-drive crossover will now come with a manufacturer-estimated 208-mile range, based on a simulated EPA test cycle, and deliver 201 hp, VW says. An optional 82-kWh battery boosts the estimated range to 275 miles in the rwd configuration.

The US-built 2023 ID4, due at dealerships in the fall, will be available in three trim levels and with optional all-wheel drive. The German automaker says a 12-inch touch screen infotainment system comes standard in the updated interior, as does a suite of driver-assistance and safety features.

VW says the top-end awd version of the S Plus trim starts at $55,290, which does not include shipping and tax credits.

The brand executives expect the ID4 availability to increase exponentially at the dealers with the commencement of local production. Outgoing VW Group of America CEO Scott Keogh told Automotive News This year the brand was receiving an average of less than 2,000 ID4 per month from the factory in Zwickau, Germany, while local production could reach 7,000 to 10,000 per month.
