2024 Volkswagen ID.4 Gets Big Updates

For 2024, Volkswagen has introduced a host of updates to the ID.4 electric crossover. Three trims will be available. A base model, followed by S and S Plus models, the latter of which tops out the range. Each trim is available with the choice between a 62 kWh battery and an 82kWh one, as well as rear or all-wheel drive. Arguably the biggest change comes to models equipped with the optional 82kWh battery pack.

VW says that power rises to 282 horsepower and 402 lb-ft of torque in rear-drive models, and up to 335 horsepower in all-wheel drive models. However, VW doesn’t quote a torque figure for the all-wheel drive models, likely meaning the figure is unchanged. Range increases as well, with an EPA-estimated 206 miles on a charge for ID.4 standard and ID.4 S models, and an EPA-estimated range of 291 miles for the ID.4 Pro and Pro S. The ID.4 AWD Pro and AWD Pro S have an EPA-estimated range of 263 miles.

Buyer’s choice of battery pack will influence more than the car’s performance specs. 62kWh models receive a 12-inch screen, while 82kWh models benefit from a new 12.9-inch touchscreen (complete with new backlit temperature sliders). VW has relocated the shifter on all models to a stalk behind the wheels, and it also says the wheel controls have a “revised layout,” though these are still the frustrating haptics from last year’s model. ID.4 S models with the bigger battery also benefit from ventilated front-row seats, and S Plus models get a new Harmon-Kardon sound system. There’s also new 20-inch aluminum wheels and S Plus models see larger 21-inch wheels.

For 2024, VW says the ID.4 will be eligible for the full $7,500 EV tax credit in the US, so long as the car in question was built with SK On battery components, not the LG ones being used in years prior. Whether some 2024 models won’t be eligible as a result still isn’t clear. Regardless, pricing starts at $41,160 for 62 kWh models and $46,300 for 82 kWh models, including $1,425 in destination charges
