Volkswagen has refreshed the ID.4 electric car for 2022 model year in the US and the latest ID.4 Pro model boasts a maximum EPA-estimated per charge range of 280 miles or 450 kilometres. This an increase of over 30 kilometres or 20 miles over the previous model year.
The ID.4 Pro S rear-wheel-drive received an EPA-estimated range of 268 miles, while the AWD Pro was rated at an EPA-estimated 251 miles of range and the AWD Pro S was rated at an EPA-estimated 245 miles of range. Regardless of the drive, all ID.4 models feature an 84 kWh battery pack producing 201 horsepower or 150 kilowatts as standard on RWD ID.4s with the extra motor for AWD generating a combined 295 hp (220 kW).
While Volkswagen hasn’t revealed the reason for range increment of the 2022 ID.4 electric car, a January report had revealed that some minor changes will be coming to the ID.4 for 2022, including some unspecified software and hardware changes. However, a Volkswagen spokesperson informed Motor 1 that the range increment is part of a “minor refinement and component maturity, such as more refined fit and finish over time in production.”
