Volkswagen is opening orders for its new all-electric ID.4 sports utility vehicle models. Following on from the ID.4 1ST Edition, the 204 PS ID.4 Pro Performance will be available in Volkwagen’s Life, Family and Max specifications, with prices starting at £41,570 on-the-road and will offer up to 323 miles (520km) of range.
Like Volkswagen’s ID.3, which has won numerous awards since it was launched late last summer, the ID.4 looks set to be a big seller. It was so popular in the USA that it sold out on launch day.
The new Pro Performance versions of the ID.4 are fitted with VW’s pro performance powertrain featuring a 77 kWh battery which offers 204PS/201 horsepower. The Pure models, which will go on sale in a few months, will come with a 52kWh battery.
All three specifications of the Pro Performance models can be charge up to in just 30 minutes using a 125 kWh rapid charger. A 7.2kWh home charger takes around 11 hours to fully charge the ID.4 Pro Performance. Charging to 80 percent from a DC, CCS charge point takes around 38 minutes.
Joe Laurence, ID. family product manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “The ID.4 has officially arrived in series form with a punchy powertrain, big battery and equipment package that leaves little to be desired.
“There’s more to come too, entry-level powertrains, batteries and specifications will arrive in the coming weeks, which will see the ID.4 entry price fall to less than £32,000 with the new government grant.
“The ID.4 represents what the buying public want from a car, zero tailpipe emissions motoring, sustainable production, SUV body style, practicality in abundance, technology to add both convenience and joy to the driving experience, while providing the quality, familiarity and comfort customers expect from a Volkswagen.”
Orders are now open for the new Volkswagen ID.4 Pro Performance range with deliveries expected to commence during the first week of May.
