Volkswagen of America has announced official fuel economy figures for the 2021 ID.4 electric SUV. The first two variants to be launched—ID.4 1st Edition and ID.4 Pro—each have an EPA-estimated 250 miles of range; estimated fuel economy of 104 MPGe in city driving; 89 MPGe on the highway; and 97 MPGe combined.
Both variants feature an 82 kWh (gross) battery and a rear-mounted AC permanent-magnet synchronous motor with 201 horsepower and 228 pound-feet of torque. Both feature CCS DC fast charging. VW says that, at 125 kW, the ID.4 can charge from 5 to 80 percent in about 38 minutes.
ID.4 buyers will receive 3 years of free unlimited charging sessions with Electrify America, which operates more than 470 charging stations and over 2,000 DC fast chargers, including a newly completed cross-country route from Washington DC to LA.
The 2021 ID.4 is on sale now. Pricing for the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 Pro starts at $39,995. A 302 hp, all-wheel-drive variant is scheduled to go on sale in 2021.
