The ID.4 is now being built in the U.S., and its lower starting price is due to a new entry-level model with a smaller 62.0-kWh battery.

  • The 2023 VW ID.4 adds a new base model that starts at $38,790, which is thousands less than last year.
  • The newly introduced ID.4 Standard has a smaller 62.0-kWh battery that VW estimates has a range of 208 miles; other ID.4s feature an 82.0-kWh battery and 255–275 miles of range, per VW.
  • The 2023 model year also brings subtle styling changes, a 12.0-inch touchscreen, and quicker fast-charging speeds.

    The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV is now more accessible to budget-minded buyers thanks to a new base model with a smaller battery. The new Standard trim level starts at $38,790, which is $3735 less than last year’s entry-level ID.4 Pro. For 2023, that price gap rises to $5000, since the Pro trim now starts at $43,790.

    Of course, saving money by picking the ID.4 Standard means sacrificing range, as Volkswagen estimates its 62.0-kWh battery pack will only provide 208 miles per charge (its EPA rating is pending). Compare that with the larger 82.0-kWh battery on all the other ID.4 models that VW predicts will offer between 255 and 275 miles of range. The larger battery also benefits from an increased 170-kW fast-charging capability. The company doesn’t provide estimated charging times for the smaller battery, but it does make Plug and Charge standard, which simplifies public charging with its automated payment system.

    For 2023, the entire ID.4 lineup receives subtle styling changes that include gloss-black bits on the front bumper as well as new wheel and paint options. Every Pro S now has an illuminated VW logo and light line on its nose as well as a light-up logo on its rump. Inside, there’s a newly standard 12.0-inch touchscreen and USB-C charging. The Standard trim is also said to be dressier than previous Pros, with stitching on its dash and nicer seating materials than the old cloth upholstery. Stepping up to S models also ups the luxe thanks to two new faux-leather options and different stitching on the door panels. There’s also a redesigned center console and heated rear seats are a new option on the ID.4 S Plus.

    Every model still benefits from a host of standard driver-assistance tech, which now includes VW’s park-assist feature. Plus, the EV SUV’s standard automated emergency braking now includes cyclist detection. The 2023 model year also sees ID.4 production move to the U.S. at the VW’s Chattanooga factory. The new models are expected to reach dealerships this fall.
