Volkswagen has expanded its ID.4 range with ‘City’ and ‘Style’ variants now available to customers in the UK.
Both models bring the option of ‘Pure’ and ‘Pure Performance’ battery and motor specifications, with the former delivering 52 kWh and 148 PS and with the latter having 170 PS on tap, with the same 52 kWh net battery capacity setup.
The ‘City’ variant also represents the new entry point into the ID.4 range and qualifies for the Plug-In Vehicle Grant, which brings the car’s on the road price down to £32,150. The City Pure Performance is priced at £36,030, the Style Pure at £38,150 and the Style Pure Performance at £39,530. Beyond those are the ID.4 Life, Family and Max models, with the 204 PS and 77 kWh ‘Pro Performance’ powertrain.
Volkswagen also recently launched a new ‘GTX’ version of the ID.4 – a sportier version of the SUV which VW says can achieve 0 to 62 mph in 6.2 seconds thanks to an electrical output of 220 kW.
In addition to the four ‘Pro Performance’ specifications already offered on the ID.4, it is now offered with ‘Pure’ and ‘Pure Performance’ battery and powertrain options, with ‘Pure’ versions providing 148 PS and 220 Nm of torque, while the ‘Pure Performance’ delivers 170 PS and 310 Nm of torque.
Both of these models feature a battery pack with 52 kWh, which can achieve a range of up to 213 miles across both City specifications, and up to 211 miles in Style variants, according to WLTP combined testing.
Volkswagen claims the ID.4 ‘Pure’ and ‘Pure Performance’ specifications can both add up to 137 miles of range from a 100 kW rapid charger in 30 minutes, while a 7.2 kW home charger takes around 7 hours and 30 minutes to take the battery from 0 to 100%. Charging to 80% from a DC, CCS charge point takes 38 minutes, according to VW.
Sarah Cox, head of marketing at Volkswagen UK, said: “As our family of all-electric and net carbon-neutral ID. models grow, there’s a car suitable for most budgets and requirements. Hot off the heels of the ID.4 winning the World Car of the Year title we are delighted to launch the entry-level ID.4 City, which is eligible for the Government’s Plug-in Vehicle Grant – and that makes electric SUV ownership accessible to even more people.
“We aren’t finished adding to the ID.4 line-up either, because in the coming months the ID.4 GTX will open for order to UK customers. It will be our first fully-electric high performance model, with the ‘GTX’ badge representing a new sub-brand of sporty all-electric models that introduce an all-wheel drive to the ID. range.”
