The all-electric SUV with all-wheel drive*. Designed for all. Available summer 2021.

Finally, electric is for everyone

Highlights

The addition of all-wheel drive in a typical SUV gives the driver more control. But the ID.4 is anything but typical.

Available all-wheel drive means getting a second electric motor at the front wheels – giving you quicker acceleration and intelligent handling that distributes all that electric power where it’s needed most.

Enter the new era of electric in style. With clean lines and aerodynamic elements that create a striking silhouette, this EV doesn’t make you sacrifice form for function. You’ll experience true German-engineered craftsmanship – just with a stylish, electric twist.

Plus get the optional Statement package, which includes perforated leatherette seats, a panoramic fixed glass roof, a variable cargo load floor, 20” alloy wheels, and more.

The ID.4’s MEB platform has an elongated wheelbase and short overhangs. Plus, with the absence of a combustion engine, the MEB platform uses that freed-up space to maximize the capacity of the interior cabin.

The ID.4 is designed with all passengers in mind—not just the driver—with 1045 mm of legroom in the first row, and 954 mm in the second. Plus, with up to 1,818 L of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, you’ll feel the difference the MEB platform makes. The ID.4’s smartly-designed interior is there to keep you and your friends as comfortable as possible – helping ensure you always have space to spare.

Electric Performance

Going electric doesn’t mean giving up what makes driving a VW so exhilarating. From the moment you hit the pedal of your ID.4, you’ll sink into your seat as the instant torque takes over.

While acceleration is much quieter than a combustion engine, we can’t promise you won’t break the silence with a few oohs and aahs along the way. Especially as you experience going 0-96 km/h in 5.8 seconds* with available AWD.

Not only is the ID.4 better for the world, but it feels great to drive.

*Please drive safely and obey all traffic laws, including speed limits.

With an estimated 400km of range**, the ID.4 can take you where you need to go and then some. That’s about the distance from Toronto to Ottawa.**

**Combined range estimate based on preliminary testing by Volkswagen, in accordance with Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) guidelines. Official range rating, once confirmed, will be published in NRCan’s 2021 Fuel Consumption Guide. Full battery charge is required. Actual driving range will vary based on driving and charging habits, weather and temperature, battery age and vehicle condition. Battery capacity decreases with time and use. See owner’s manual for details.

As the ID.4 uses power, it has an innovative way to transform energy to maximise efficiency. Almost every time you brake or take your foot off the pedal, the ID.4 stores up kinetic energy for later—allowing the battery to charge regeneratively and making for a more efficient driving experience.

Design

The ID.4’s expansive available panoramic glass roof lets light in and provides a sweeping view of the sky. Or, take a break from the sun by activating the electric sunshade with the touch of a button.

With standard LED ECO headlights and taillights, illuminated door handles, and integrated LED light bars across the back, the ID.4 practically radiates. Plus, upgrade to get enhanced LED headlights and a beautifully illuminated front VW logo & grille that adds some premium style to the ID.4’s face.

Technology

Inside the ID.4, you’ll find an intuitive light bar that runs across the dashboard, which we call the ID. Light. It uses glowing visual cues to telegraph incoming calls, brake warnings, charge status, and more. Think of the ID. Light as the way your ID.4 communicates with you.

Your central hub for your drive. This voice-controlled touchscreen is equipped with smart features like Interactive Navigation, Climate Control, and more - so you can get where you’re going, and stay comfortable along the way. Comes equipped with a standard 10” screen, with a 12” option available.

With Intuitive Start, starting your vehicle doesn’t even require the touch of a button. Your vehicle will sense your presence and “wake up” automatically as soon as you touch the handle, as long as you’re carrying your key fob. Meaning your car is always just a touch away from being ready for the road.

Say goodbye to tangled cords with wireless App-Connect and wireless charging – coming standard with every ID.4. Whether you need to charge your phone or connect music to your car, you can do it seamlessly with wireless connectivity.

Keep cozy during Canadian winters with an improved heat pump that comes standard with every ID.4. By using CO2-based refrigerant in a closed system, your ID.4 will have you feeling toasty – even as you traverse Canada’s harshest seasons.
