Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Volkswagen ID.4 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
The VW ID.4 was just released as part of the 2021 model year. This relatively new SUV is distinct because it's an all-electric model. It has fairly good range and enough power to please a lot of people, so it's likely to find success in the market. In addition, it has a fresh design and a versatile cabin, along with high-tech equipment.
Range and Charging
It's estimated that with a full battery, the 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 has a range of 280 miles. This is a good distance that should work well for short trips around town as well as day trips. Longer road trips might require some extra planning, but fortunately, there are now many more public charging stations than there used to be.
With a Level 3 public DC fast charger, it takes about ten minutes to extend 70 miles to the available charge. With a Level 2 charging system, which is something that can be installed at a residence, charging for one hour results in an added range of between 25 and 37 miles. To get a full charge, one would have to plug in the ID.4 overnight or at least for an extended amount of time. It could take between seven and a half and eleven and a half hours to get a full charge.
Level 1 charging occurs when the vehicle is plugged into a regular outlet. This works, but it's quite slow and is not generally recommended unless no other option is available.
Note that these charging rates are the ones that have been calculated for the ID.4 Pro trim. If anyone has a different trim or all-wheel drive, then that Level 3 charging rate wouldn't be as fast. For example, the ID.4 AWD Pro S gets 60 miles of range for every ten minutes.
The ID.4 doesn't look like it's that athletic, but it actually does pretty well in this area. The rear-wheel-drive versions of the ID.4 have a single motor that provides them with 201 horsepower and 229 pound-feet of torque. In comparison, the all-wheel-drive versions have two motors, one for the front and one for the rear. Net horsepower is 295, and torque is 339 pound-feet. The models with AWD are noticeably quicker than their counterparts, and the instant torque provided by the electric motor is to be appreciated.
This model has 37.6 inches of second-row leg room. This doesn't make the cabin incredibly spacious, but it is a decent amount of room. The area behind the rear seats has a volume of 30.3 cubic feet. Lowering the rear seats results in a total cargo capacity of 64.2 cubic feet. This is a bit smaller than what many well-known two-row SUVs have to offer, but it's not as compact as some of the other models available.
The ID.4 definitely has the look of a modern vehicle. It has smooth lines that give it an aerodynamic feel. The front grille features the VW logo at its center but is otherwise very minimal in its design. The LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights are narrow, too. Those headlights have an available function in which they can turn as the vehicle is turning. This allows them to better light the road ahead in dark areas.
This VW can either ride on 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels or use 20-inch alloy wheels with a dynamic design. The door handles are illuminated as a kind of welcome gesture. The side mirrors can be illuminated as well, as can the front grille and VW logo. It's a nice touch that's very noticeable at night. Some other high-end components that the ID.4 can be enhanced with are a panoramic fixed glass roof, a hands-free liftgate, and a contrast black roof.
Getting into this VW and starting to drive is an experience in itself. The SUV can sense the presence of the driver (as long as the key fob is somewhere in close proximity). When the driver sits down in the seat, the screens turn on and the vehicle is ready to move.
Every ID.4 trim has a large touchscreen with navigation and smartphone compatibility. On the first trim, the Pro, the touchscreen measures ten inches. It's increased to one that ensures 12 inches on the Pro S and Pro S with Gradient trim.
Those top two trims are also upgraded with leatherette seats instead of cloth. Plus, they have power-adjustable front seats with a massage function and memory, as well as ambient lighting that offers 30 different colors. With the entry-level Pro trim, the ambient lighting system has ten different colors to choose from. It was a good move to give every trim heated front seats and a heated steering wheel for extra comfort, and the standard keyless entry system is convenient, too.
SafetyIQ.Drive is the name of the safety program that's been incorporated into the ID.4. It's quite comprehensive and can prevent many kinds of accidents. It has monitors that can watch out for rear traffic and vehicles in blind spots, and it can sense when the VW is veering out of a lane or about to hit an object in front of it. In these situations, the ID.4 would issue a warning and could help take preventive measures by making adjustments to braking and/or steering.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
