New Volkswagen ID.4 goes on sale in the UK

The ID.4 is the first all-electric SUV from the German manufacturer and follows on from the success of its smaller stablemate, the ID.3. It’s now available to buy in the UK for £37,500 (after government grants have been applied).

The WLTP range is around 310 miles from the 77 kWh battery. It’s also capable of charging at up to 125kW, this means you could gain an extra 199 miles of range in just 30 minutes. With 204 PS of power and 310 Nm of torque instantly available, the rear-wheel drive ID.4 completes the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 8.5 seconds.

The production of the ID.4, just like the ID.3, is carbon-neutral. This is an important consideration for green car buyers.

To put this new EV into perspective, it’s about the same size as a VW Tiguan but the MEB platform means the ID.4 benefits from even more interior space. This makes it an ideal family car and daily driver.

ID. Family Product Manager at Volkswagen UK, Joe Laurence, said: “With the popularity of SUVs as high as ever, we are proud to be introducing our first all-electric contender in the form of the ID.4.

“The ID.4 is also our first electric vehicle that can be fitted with an optional tow bar, suitable for trailers weighing up to 1,000kg. This really is an incredibly practical car, and with the batteries mounted under the passenger compartment, it has a low centre of gravity which equips it with great driving dynamics and balanced handling. We know our customers are going to love it.”
