After just one model year on the market, the Volkswagen ID4 enters 2022 with hugely significant updates. To reach as many buyers as possible, the electric compact SUV is expected to introduce a new base trim made possible by a move in production to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Dropping the price from around $40,000 in the 2021 ID4 (also known as the ID.4) to around $35,000 for the 2022 model, the Volkswagen could attract new buyers to the brand in a growing affordable electric SUV segment that also includes the Nissan Ariya and Chevrolet Bolt EUV, not to mention the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Either as a late-release 2021 ID4 or as a 2022 ID4 model, the electric Volkswagen will also introduce a more powerful AWD version with 302 hp. The standard RWD model makes 201 hp and has an anticipated range of 250 miles.
