When the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 launched, we called its range “modest” for a new electric SUV; an update for 2022 adds some miles and makes it more competitive against other small electric SUVs. The automaker today announced that the 2022 VW ID.4 base rear-wheel-drive Pro trim has an EPA-estimated 280 miles of range, an increase of 20 miles from the 2021 model.

Other versions also see range boosts for 2022, but they are smaller increases. The all-wheel-drive Pro now gets 251 miles of range, up from 249 miles for 2021. The RWD Pro S is good for 268 miles, up from 250 miles. Last, the AWD Pro S is now rated at 245 miles of range, up from 240 miles.

The AWD ID.4’s range still falls short of the AWD Ford Mustang Mach-E, which maxes out at 305 miles. The Tesla Model Y, offered exclusively with AWD, outperforms both SUVs with an EPA-estimated range of 303 to 330 miles, depending on the variation you choose.

The added range also comes at a price; each model sees a $765 increase over outgoing models. The base 2022 ID.4 Pro starts at $41,955 for RWD and $45,635 for AWD. Pro S models, which add features like a panoramic moonroof and larger touchscreen, start at $46,455 for RWD and $50,135 for AWD.  All prices include destination but exclude the federal tax credit of $7,500 or any available state credits. Despite the price increase, the ID.4 is still more affordable than the Mach-E or Model Y.

Reservations are open for the 2022 ID.4, though the automaker has yet to provide a delivery timeline for the model. Volkswagen previously said model-year 2022 deliveries should start around the end of February or the beginning of March for current reservation holders.
