vw announces range and price for id.4 awd pro and pro s

© Volkswagen Volkswagen’s electric crossover gains all-wheel drive and extra power, dropping the range and efficiency figures slightly while bumping up the price. The Volkswagen ID.4 AWD Pro and Pro S models add an extra motor on the front axle, increasing power by 94 horsepower to 295 and boosting torque by 110 pound-feet to 339.These powertrain upgrades drop the range by around ten miles according to the EPA, with the AWD Pro going 249 miles on a charge while the Pro S can manage 240 miles.Opting for all-wheel drive will see the price raise by $3680 to $44,870 for the Pro and $49,370 for the Pro S, which adds tech and convenience features and the option of 20-inch wheels.

The Volkswagen ID.4 EV launched for the 2021 model year, and now the the lineup is expanding to include the more powerful ID.4 AWD Pro and Pro S models. Although this version of the ID.4 is marketed under the GTX subbrand in Europe, the U.S. model gets a subtler moniker here but has the same upgraded powertrain. With the 2021 ID.4 AWD Pro and Pro S now ready for sale, Volkswagen has announced the EPA estimates for range and efficiency, along with pricing for the newest member of the ID family.

While the rear-wheel-drive versions of the ID.4 make do with 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque from the rear-axle mounted motor, the AWD models add another motor on the front axle, upping the horsepower to 295 hp and torque to 339 pound-feet. Still, the ID.4 AWD Pro and Pro S have the same battery pack, which offers 77.0 kWh of usable capacity. With the same battery but more power, the AWD Pro and Pro S models unsurprisingly lose some range, with the EPA estimating 249 miles for the Pro and 240 for the Pro S. This is down from 260 and 250 miles of range for the rear-wheel-drive Pro and Pro S, respectively.

The all-wheel-drive ID.4s are also slightly less efficient that the rear-drive versions, with the Pro returning 102 MPGe in the city, 90 MPGe on the highway, and 97 MPGe combined. The Pro S, which adds tech and convenience features and can be optioned with 20-inch wheels, drops that to 98 MPGe in the city, 88 MPGe on the highway, and 93 MPGe combined. Volkswagen says that using a 125-kW charger, the ID.4 can hit 80 percent charge from five percent in 38 minutes, and all ID.4 owners get three years of free unlimited charging at Electrify America stations.

The 2021 ID.4 AWD Pro will start at $44,870 and the the AWD Pro S will cost $49,370, increases of $3680 over the rear-wheel-drive models.
