At the market launch only one battery size and one electric motor variant
The VW ID.4 was presented in September, but it will be launched this January. Since a lot has changed since the last press release, it is time to report on the status quo, as can be seen in the VW configurator.
The edition models ID.4 1st and ID.4 1St Max no longer appear on the website. Six variants are currently configurable: Pro, Life, Business, Family, Tech and Max. This means there are three fewer than the ID.3; the equipment variants Style, Pro S and Tour are missing. There are also fewer technical variants than the ID.3. Therefore, the table with the variants remains clear:
|version||engine||Battery / seats||price|
|Per 150 kW||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||44,450 euros|
|Life 150 kW||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||47,020 euros|
|Business 150 kW||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||51,005 euros|
|Family 150 kW||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||52,205 euros|
|Tech||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||55,410 euros|
|Max||150 kW / 204 PS||77 kWh / 5 seats||58,820 euros|
While the ID.3 gives you the choice between two batteries (58 and 77 kWh), the ID.4 only has the 77 kWh version. The associated WLTP range is around 500 kilometers. In addition, the ID.4 has so far only been offered with the 150 kW electric motor (204 PS), while the version with 108 kW (145 PS) that was recently added to the ID.3 is currently missing.

Like the ID.3, the ID.4 has always been rear-wheel drive so far. However, a version with more power and all-wheel drive is to follow. So far, all models can charge with 11 kW alternating current. However, a Pure variant with a 52 kWh battery and 125 kW (170 PS) was also announced; this is content with 7.2 kW charging power.
Interior of the ID.4 1ST
The interior looks similar to the ID.3: There is a small display for the instruments and a larger touchscreen; however, the largest 12-inch touchscreen is reserved for the top versions Tech and Max. Operation is the same as with the ID.3, i.e. the driving modes (D, B, N and R) are activated via a switch to the right of the driver's display.
Prices start at 44,450 euros for the Pro version. This version offers 19-inch steel wheels, LED headlights (with light sensor), traffic sign recognition, emergency brake assist with pedestrian and cyclist recognition, mobile phone connection via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and parking beeps for front and rear. According to the PDF equipment list from VW, a navigation system is initially (probably until June 2021) on board.
Trunk and three rear seats in the ID.4 1ST
VW does not provide any clear information on the number of seats – the ID.3 has versions with four and five seats. It is not clear whether the basic versions Pro and Life have four or five seats. However, the higher versions (from Business) have five seats. Here the rear seats can be folded down asymmetrically and there is a through-loading facility.
