Press Release from VW:
“Herndon, VA — Today, Volkswagen of America announced that pricing for the 2023 ID.4 electric compact SUV will start at an MSRP of $37,495, with an all-new entry battery pack, upgraded exterior and interior design, new aluminum-alloy wheels, updated improved center console, and more features. Now assembled in Chattanooga, Tenn., the ID.4 is offered in three trim levels—Standard/Pro, S, and S Plus—with the option of 62 kWh and 82 kWh batteries and rear-wheel- or all-wheel drive.

The entry ID.4, now called the ID.4 Standard, is equipped with a new 62 kWh battery, allowing for a lower price of entry and a preliminary manufacturer estimated range of 208 miles, based on a simulated EPA-test cycle. A single, permanent magnet synchronous motor powers the rear wheels and provides 201 horsepower…

The ID.4 Standard starts at an MSRP of $37,495 before a potential Federal tax credit of up to $7,500. The entry model is extremely well equipped, while its new 62 kWh battery allows the lowest price of entry to date for the ID.4. It features redesigned 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels; LED headlights, Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), and taillights; automatic headlights with rain-sensing wipers; KESSY® advanced keyless entry; dual-zone Climatronic®; a Discover Pro Max 12” touchscreen navigation system with voice control and 6+1 speaker sound system; Bluetooth® connectivity for compatible devices; wireless phone charging and App-Connect®; manual heated premium cloth/leatherette front seats; Volkswagen’s 5.3-inch ID.Cockpit digital instrument cluster; interior multi-color ambient lighting and ID. Light; Car-Net® with Wi-Fi capability (requires subscription); a new multi-function touch premium leatherette steering wheel; gloss black front bumper grilles and roof rails in black; a rearview camera; an auto dimming rear-view mirror, heated side mirrors and heated windshield washer nozzles; and a 60:40 split folding rear seat.

In addition to Front Assist with pedestrian and cyclist detection, Side Assist, front and rear Park Distance Control, and High Beam Control (Light Assist), every ID.4 features Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE suite of advanced assistance technology, which includes: Travel Assist 2.0; Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist); Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go; Traffic Sign Recognition; a memory feature for Park Assist; and Emergency Assist 3.0.

The ID.4 Pro builds on the comprehensive set of standard features of the ID.4 with an 82 kWh battery that boosts manufacturer’s estimated range from 208 miles to 275. All-wheel drive is available in the ID.4 AWD Pro, adding an additional front motor and increasing power from 201 hp to 295 hp.

The ID.4 Pro starts at $42,495 MSRP, and the all-wheel-drive version starts at an MSRP of $46,295. Both versions benefit from an increased DC fast charging capability of 170kW, and a variable luggage/load compartment floor. All-wheel-drive models further feature a heated windshield, as well a tow hitch with 2,700 lbs towing capacity.”



For a net price of $27k in NJ, even $31k with no incentive, it’s a great value, the EPA simulated 208 miles is pretty low, and will only be lower in the cold, running the A/C, and/or driving highway speeds, it will be lower, but realistically no one drives that much in a day.


what a way to compensate for a horrible UI :clap:

That’s about $15k less than the mythical Audi Semiconductor ShortageQ4 that will be delivered to your heirs in 2064 with manual seats and Duracell batteries.


regardless, im going to put a deposit down for a base model at a NY dealer for MSRP to capture $2k drive clean rebate which would make this net to be as low as $29k! I can deal with touch sensitive buttons if its that cheap haha.


Better than a :leaves:

Good deal if it arrives in 2022 and qualifies for the current federal rebate, and probably the 2023 rebate as well. Puts the car at $30k minus any state rebates.

Probably won’t given their production backlog.

Not sure, they moved production to Chattanooga, TN. They might just start cranking them out l. But you’re right, the backlog for the 22s is pretty bad. I know someone who’s been waiting months.

Setting up shop in TN doesn’t eliminate chip, wiring loom, general materials shortages.

At least it eliminates the 2 week boat ride with a week or longer at port on each end.

Can this be ordered yet? Any ETA on when they’d arrive?

Orders opened yesterday, ETA unknown, there was a major delay with the 2022s people waited 7-12 months but with the hurdles out of the way and the TN plant opening I assume it will be quicker.

just placed a reservation with Platinum VW in Hicksville NY for MSRP, no blessings required.

Will also get $2k drive clean rebate and LOW $175 doc fee which is basically a 6% discount vs. paying MSRP at an out of state dealer with $500+ doc fees.


So realistically not a candidate for NJCU phase 3?

Actually, happened last year, when the program announced an end date, a lot of people placed an order for Tesla, which secured their rebate. If you look at the incentive statistics for Phase 2, you can see money was still going out past the 9/15/21 close date because of those orders that locked in their rebate.

I actually just got an email from my VW dealer yesterday asking me to sign the terms and conditions sheet to secure my rebate when the car eventually comes.

Place your order, it will secure the rebate, if you want I can get you $1000 off MSRP too :wink:


My NJ friend is interested in getting one under MSRP. Can you PM me dealer info?

Just converted my Pro AWD reservation to the base model after the Pro AWD lost the heated steering wheel for MY23. This new base model is a great value for a second car as long as it is paired with an ICE/PHEV first car in the household.


how do i get $1,000 off msrp?

How do I get this with 1k off?

What’s the max charging speed for the new standard model? Too bad about the lack of DC Fast Charging, otherwise that’d be a fantastic choice here for around $30k. I can’t imagine getting by comfortably with such lousy range in the winter unless this were only used as a second car.

Huh? The id.4 does 125 kW dc charging, 170 kW on the big battey…
