2023 Volkswagen ID.4 First Drive Review: Locally Sourced, Base is Ace

Volkswagen is really taking the “shop local” mindset seriously with the refreshed 2023 ID.4 EV.

When sales started a year and a half ago, North America got its goods from the same place everyone else did: the Zwickau-Mosel plant in Germany. It was, to put it simply, a bottleneck, even before the industry-wide supplier shortages. After an $800-million dollar investment in Chattanooga, Volkswagen has adapted its production facility there to not only build the ID.4, but the batteries that power it. To mark the occasion, the brand has tweaked the ID.4 for the 2023 model year, creating a package unique to North America. Not only that, the Peoples’ Car people have also added a more affordable, smaller-battery option to anchor the lineup.

The changes don’t dramatically alter VW’s dedicated electric SUV. Instead, the result is a quietly competent choice in an increasingly competitive segment. Factor in a bargain price tag—and the possibility of even further rebates in Canada and the US—and the 2023 VW ID.4 has become one of the most appealing packages on the market.
