After officially unveiling the Volkswagen ID.4 to the world in September, two variants of the electric SUV now have their official range ratings from the EPA, and they come in right on target.
According to the EPA the top of the line ID.4 1st edition, equipped with an 82kWh battery (77kWh usable), will be able to travel 402 km (250 miles) on a single charge. Similarly, the ID.4 Pro S is equipped with the same battery pack and achieved the same range rating.
The ratings also reveal the efficiency for what VW calls their most important vehicle in years. In highway driving, both versions of the ID.4 get 89MPGe, or the equivalent of 235 Wh/km (379Wh/mi). City driving obviously fares better, getting 104MPGe, or 201 Wh/km (324 Wh/mi).
When combined, the average efficiency is 97MPGe, or 216 Wh/km (347 Wh/mi), an impressive number for an electric SUV. For comparison, the most efficient Model Y gets a combined 125MPGe, or 168 Wh/km (270 Wh/mi).
The ID.4 will come in at a much cheaper price point than the Model Y though. The ID.4 Pro will start at $39,995 USD ($52,000 CAD) before the federal tax credit which brings the price down to $32,495 USD ($42,200 CAD).
Canadian pricing has yet to be announced, but is expected to be early next year.
