2022 Volkswagen ID.4 Price Hiked $795

The 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 electric car will cost $41,995 to start, a $795 bump over last year, the automaker has confirmed on its website.

That price hike is likely to be accompanied by a range increase, though the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not yet tested the 2022 ID.4 electric car. Last year’s model was rated between 240 and 260 miles on a full charge, depending on configuration.

Pricing now ranges as high as $50,135, including a mandatory $1,195 destination charge.

Over-the-air updates will make the range upgrade possible since VW plans to upgrade the vehicle’s charging capacity from 125 kW to 135 kW. VW said late last year that other updates would include the ability for ID.4 models to communicate directly with Electrify America charging stations and an automatic hold mode for the electronic parking brake.

The ability to talk to Electrify America charging stations means drivers won’t need to wave a charging card or access an app to plug in their ID.4 EVs. This ability hardly comes as a surprise since the charging network is a subsidiary of Volkswagen that was started as part of a court settlement to offset emissions after the automaker was caught intentionally cheating on the EPA’s test with its diesel models. See Volkswagen ID.4 models for sale
