VW ID.4 Power Technology
The Volkswagen ID.4 runs on electric power. As such, its engine incorporates a number of impressive technological features. Under the hood is a lithium-ion high voltage battery with a capacity of 82 kWh. It might not be 1.21 gigawatts, but it’ll still pack a punch!
This powertrain provides 201 horsepower, which is equal to 150 kW of total power. This system will allow you to go an EPA-estimated 250 miles between charges.1 If you somehow run out of charge on the road, you’ll have access to Electrify America DC Fast Chargers. These convenient power stations can be found along most major United States highways.
Using a public DC fast charger will allow you to go from 5% charge to 80% charge in just 38 minutes—equating to about 60 miles of charge every 10 minutes.
VW ID.4 Interior Technology
You will have a wealth of technology at your disposal in the interior. In terms of multimedia, the SUV is outfitted with a Discover Pro navigation system with a 10-inch touchscreen. Pair this with the wireless App-Connect and BluetoothÒ streaming audio capability, and you have a highly connected driving experience.
The SUV also comes with an ID.Cockpit, a digital driver display that will provide you with important statistics and information. Add the ID. Light system that transmits notifications, like calls and texts, via light bursts and acoustics, and you will be highly informed behind the wheel with a vehicle that doubles as a personal assistant.
Additional interior tech includes:
- Heated front seats
- 10-color customizable interior ambient lighting
- Keyless access and proximity unlocking
VW ID.4 EV Driver Assistive Technology
Another key area where the Volkswagen ID.4 EV impresses is with its safety and driver assistive technology. The vehicle comes with IQ.DRIVE, a suite of advanced driver assistance technologies.
This system includes the innovative, available Travel Assist feature that functions as a hands-on semi-autonomous driving assistant. This system can help with steering as well as accelerating and braking. Until vehicles come equipped with full-on autopilot, the Travel Assist of the ID.4 EV is about as assistive as you can get behind the wheel!
The IQ.DRIVE suite also offers:
- Front Assist
- Rear Traffic Alert
- Active Side Assist (Blind Spot Monitor)
- Available Adaptive Cruise Control
- Available Emergency Assist
