The 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 is a small SUV powered by electricity. In terms of size, it fits in Volkswagen's lineup just below the compact Tiguan SUV. Despite smaller exterior dimensions than the Tiguan, the ID.4 has a similarly spacious interior. The ID.4 was launched in 2021 with just one powertrain choice — a single electric motor that powered the rear wheels. It uses an 82-kWh battery pack and produces 201 horsepower and 228 lb-ft of torque.
For 2022, we expect Volkswagen to add an all-wheel-drive version to the ID.4 lineup. A second motor will drive the front wheels and overall horsepower will bump up to 302 hp, which should also give the range a healthy nudge upward. Current rear-wheel-drive versions of the ID.4 receive an EPA estimate of either 260 or 250 miles (depending on trim level), but we're expecting around 300 miles of range with the new all-wheel-drive version.
Since the ID.4 is a relatively new model, we don't expect much in the way of interior changes. Current models offer a spacious interior with lots of attractive surfaces and impressive tech. A 10-inch center touchscreen comes standard and a 12-inch screen is optional, providing all the modern tech aids and smartphone connectivity you'd expect. Driver safety aids such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane departure mitigation are standard too.
