VW starts North American production of MY23 ID. 4 electric SUV

Volkswagen announced this morning that the company is starting production of the MY23 ID.4 electric SUV at its Chattanooga, Tennessee facility.

The company plans to ramp up production to 7,000 cars per month to speed up customer deliveries.

Since its launch last year, VW has delivered 190,000 ID.4’s worldwide.

VW confirmed that all Canadian ID.4’s would be sourced from this facility.

This is not the only investment into North America for the German automaker.

In fact, the company is investing $7.1 billion over the next five years to boost the product portfolio, regional research and development and manufacturing capabilities in North America.

Currently, VW is producing two different vehicle versions on the 82 kWh battery.

The all-wheel-drive version, called the ID.4 Pro AWD, will have an MRSP of $52,995.

While the rear-wheel-drive version called the ID.4 Pro will have an MRSP of $47,995

The company will also launch a rear-wheel-drive version called the ID.4 with a 62 kWh battery in the fourth quarter of 2022 with an MRSP of $43,995.

VW also offers a Statement package that provides upgraded seats, a rear-seat pass-through, variable luggage compartment floor and dozen or so other features for $5,000.

The MY23 ID.4 models will arrive at Canadian dealerships this fall, and the company hopes to start deliveries around that time.
