Following up on its 2021 World Car of the Year award, the new 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 has broken even more boundaries on its mission toward becoming the EV for "the millions, not the millionaires."

2022 Volkswagen ID.4 range

You would think Volkswagen would take time to relish in their 2021 World Car of the Year award, but there’s no time to waste in the fast-moving electric vehicle industry! So the 2022 VW ID.4 keeps the ball rolling. It adds 20 miles to the already impressive range of the 2021 model, bringing its total to 280 miles.
An 82 kWh battery pack powers all trim levels for ID.4. But, the RWD models are powered by a 201 hp single motor, and the AWD models have an extra motor that combines for 295 hp. Here’s how that affects maximum driving range:

Looking at these stats, it’s a little surprising that the Volkswagen ID.4 won the World Car of the Year award. It doesn’t have the fastest level 2 charge time, it isn’t the cheapest, it doesn’t have the best range, and it isn’t the fastest. Well, you have to look at the bigger picture.
In a recent VW news release, Thomas Ulbrich, Board Member for Development at the Volkswagen brand, made this statement in regards to their recognition:
 “We have succeeded in developing a car that starts the system change to e-mobility in the world's most important segment—compact SUVs—and offers excellent everyday usability. We are making innovative electric mobility in the volume market something that can be experienced by everyone.”
While the specs aren’t at the top of the charts yet (while still impressive), the VW ID.4 growth potential will make it a key player in the adoption of mass-market electric vehicles. This once again reinforces Volkswagen’s mission statement that the ID.4 is an EV for the millions, not the millionaires!
