The 2024 VW ID.4: The Entry-Level Electric Vehicle

January 9th, 2024 by

All-electric SUVs combine the versatility and practicality of SUVs while offering the fuel savings of electric vehicles. However, as all-electric SUVs are still relatively new, there aren’t many affordable options on the market. In this regard, Volkswagen stands out from the competition, offering one of the more affordable electric SUVs. If you’re interested in getting an electric SUV at a lower cost without sacrificing quality, performance, or comfort, the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4 may be for you. Below, we’ll highlight some of its key features to help you decide if it’s the right choice.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4

The 2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Overview

For 2024, Volkswagen continues its run of developing an affordable and spacious SUV in the ID.4. First launched in 2020, the ID.4 quickly became a popular alternative to the more expensive Tesla Model X. Now, it remains an excellent option for those buyers who want a modern, electric SUV, without having to spend a fortune on a Tesla. For the 2024 model, Volkswagen made some significant improvements, such as a larger battery pack and a better electric motor, which makes this year the perfect time to get your Volkswagen ID.4.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Electric Powertrain

Let’s start by looking at the electric powertrain inside the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4. There are two primary options available for the 2024 model. The first is a rear-mounted electric motor with a 58 kWh battery pack. With this setup, you’ll get 201 horsepower. The other option is an all-wheel-drive model, which pairs with a larger 77 kWh battery to produce 330 horsepower.

When properly equipped, the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4 can also tow up to 2,700 pounds, giving the ID.4 significantly more versatility. Finally, the ID.4 uses regenerative braking, which helps to recharge some of your battery when you apply the brakes.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Range and Charging

A significant factor when exploring any electric vehicle is the driving range on a single battery charge. The maximum range you can get with the 2024 ID.4 depends on which powertrain you select. Choosing the larger battery pack with all-wheel drive will give you about 263 miles of range, and pairing it with rear-wheel drive will give you around 291 miles. For the 2024 model year, the EPA hasn’t released its estimates for the base battery pack, but previous model years that used the same battery had around 209 miles of range.

You have a few options when charging the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4. The ID.4 is compatible with 110- and 240-volt connections, allowing you to charge it at home. With either of these setups, you can charge your vehicle overnight and have a full battery by morning. Then there’s the DC fast-charging capabilities, which allow you to charge your ID.4 at public charging stations. With this setup, you can fully charge your battery in about 40 minutes or bring it from 10% to 80% in about 30 minutes.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Interior Space

Moving inside, you can expect a modern and spacious interior. The cabin, characterized by an uncluttered and playful layout, features standard cloth seats with front seat heating while engaging ambient lighting enhances the overall aesthetic appeal. Opting for the Pro S model elevates the experience, introducing faux-leather upholstery and 12-way power-adjustable front seats equipped with a memory function. The impressive cargo space accommodates eight carry-on suitcases behind the rear seat and a remarkable total of 26 with the rear seats folded. This spacious interior aligns with the ID.4’s commitment to practicality and comfort, making it a standout in its category.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Entertainment Technology

The 2024 ID.4 also comes with plenty of entertainment features to make your driving experience more enjoyable. The 12-inch (12.9-inch option available) infotainment touch screen, which uses Volkswagen’s latest infotainment interface, lets you quickly access numerous vehicle features and settings. You can also quickly connect it to your smartphone, thanks to wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integrations. Finally, the ID.4’s infotainment system can also come with backlights, which help you find the volume and climate controls at night.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Safety Features

The last area to talk about is the safety features. With the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4, you’ll have a host of safety features at your fingertips, constantly monitoring you while you drive for optimal safety. Just a few of the standard safety features include:

  • Automated emergency braking.
  • Pedestrian detection.
  • Lane departure warning.
  • Lane-keeping assist.
  • Adaptive cruise control.

This is in addition to all the air bags located throughout the cabin, protecting you and your passengers in the event of an accident. We highly recommend exploring all the safety features included or available with the 2024 Volkswagen ID.4, as there are many to look at.

2024 Volkswagen ID.4: Trim Levels
