July 16th, 2023 by

The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 has arrived here at Bud Brown Volkswagen in Olathe, Kansas, so if you’re ready to make the jump into electrification we recommend you check it out today. Although the nameplate is only a couple of years old, this year the ID.4 has already been revamped as VW takes strides to perfect its new all-electric compact crossover. Today we thought we’d highlight some of its most important technical specs by going over some of the most frequently asked questions in regards to the EV, so check out below for the FAQ answers.

What does ID stand for?

According to Volkswagen executives themselves, the ID in the names of vehicles on the brand’s lineup of

EVs stands for “intelligent design, identity and visionary technologies.”

What is the range of the ID.4?

When it comes to electric vehicles, this is typically one of the top three most asked questions regardless of make or model. How far can the thing go on a single charge? Well, the vehicle’s range largely depends on which powertrain you opt to choose, as the ID.4 has a few different ones from which to choose.

The ID.4 Standard, which is the base trim level for the vehicle, comes equipped with a 62 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 209 miles. The next level up, which is ID.4 Pro, upgrades to an 82 kWh battery that can deliver a range of 275 miles.

While both of those models have a single permanent magnet synchronous motor powering the rear wheels, the ID.4 AWD Pro adds an asynchronous motor to the front axle, boosting power in exchange for a bit of range, as it drops down to 255 miles.

How much power does it generate?

Going hand in hand with the previous question, how much power the vehicle is capable of generating depends on the powertrain. In the models with the single permanent magnet synchronous motor, the ID.4 can generate up to 201 horsepower. In models that add the asynchronous motor, power is boosted to 295 hp.

How fast can you charge it?

So, what happens if you need to travel more than 209, 275, or 255 miles? The good news these days is that there are more and more DC public fast-charging ports cropping up all over the place, so you can typically get a good amount of charge in a short amount of time. With fast-charging, you can go from 10-80% of battery life in just 30 minutes. Naturally, that’s a bit longer than you’d spend filling up your gas tank, but a short break is certainly worth no longer having to pay for gas in our minds!
