2021 Volkswagen ID4 MODEL OVERVIEW

Volkswagen is jumping back into electric cars in a big way. The ID4 has huge potential to reach far more customers than VW's previous electric-car effort ever did, thanks to the fact that it's a compact SUV. Going electric in that popular segment means the new VW ID4 (also known as the ID.4) will compete against everything from the new 2022 Nissan Ariya to the Tesla Model Y and the Ford Mustang Mach-E in between. An ID4 prototype is shown above.

Once the Volkswagen ID4 eventually arrives in U.S. dealerships, it'll offer electric SUV customers a conventional SUV shape that has a modern vibe. And if it's anything like other VWs including the Atlas, the ID4 may offer more interior space than some of its competitors. The ID4 will be offered in RWD and AWD forms, with an estimated range of 250 miles on the ID.4 1st Edition model.

Inside, the ID4 will offer a version of Volkswagen's well-liked Digital Cockpit, a fully digital instrument cluster. A 10-inch infotainment screen tilted slightly toward the driver is also part of the package. At first, the Volkswagen ID4 is expected to be imported from Europe after which the company's Chattanooga, Tennessee, plant will take over for U.S.-market SUVs. That change will happen with the 2022 ID4 models, which VW says will feature a price of around $35,000. The initial 2021 Volkswagen ID4 models will go on sale with an MSRP of around $40,000.
