Large 77-kWh battery. The ID.4 Pro 4MOTION is an all-rounder, which is also capable of long distances. Its battery has a net energy content of 77 kWh. It weighs 486 kilograms and guarantees a range of 517 kilometres (WLTP). Its casing, which is made of aluminium profiles and protected by a strong frame, houses twelve cellular modules. A base plate with integrated water channels cools or heats it as required. Volkswagen guarantees that the battery will still have at least 70 percent of its original capacity after eight years or 160,000 km of driving.
Charging ecosystem. Under the label We Charge, Volkswagen offers a total package for comfortable, networked and sustainable charging of e-cars. It always has the right solution – on long journeys, out and about, and at home. With the We Connect ID. App on smartphone, customers can easily and comfortably access the charging ecosystem.
Rapid DC charging. With We Charge, Volkswagen customers can use one of the largest networks in Europe, which already comprises more than 300,000 charging points. Via the standard mode 3 cable, the ID.4 Pro 4MOTION can charge with alternating current (AC) with a capacity of up to 11 kW whilst out and about. At a DC rapid-charge station, like those provided by IONITY, it can charge with direct current (DC) at up to 135 kW. It takes just 36 minutes for the battery to be charged from 5 percent (SoC, State of Charge) to 80 percent – enough for the next 337 kilometres (WLTP).
Informative charging menu. On its touch display, the ID.4 Pro 4MOTION displays a charging menu that is designed to be informative and easy to understand. The e-route planner in the navigation puts together a multi-stop strategy for long routes, which allows the car to reach its destination as quickly as possible. In doing so, it also takes into consideration traffic and route information. Charging stops are evaluated dynamically, based on the capacity of the charging stations and how busy they are. This can result in the route planner proposing two short charging procedures with a high capacity, rather than one with a low capacity.
Volkswagen invests in the rapid-charging network. Volkswagen is investing massively in the European rapid-charging network. Together with partners, it is aiming to establish a network of 18,000 charging points by 2025. The company also supports projects to generate additional green electricity. These include the Aldermyrberget wind power project in Sweden, with a total annual capacity of roughly 286 million kWh.
ID. Charger for home and on the road. In their garage at home, owners of the ID.4 Pro 4MOTION can charge with Volkswagen Naturstrom, which comes from approved sources. This is particularly easy with the ID. Charger. Three versions of the wallbox are available, all of which offer a charging capacity of up to 11 kW. Both the Volkswagen Naturstrom and the ID. Charger come from Elli, a brand of Volkswagen Group Components. For smart charging whilst out and about, the ID. Charger Travel is available with a capacity of up to 11 kW. The ID. Charger identifies the plug and voltage and automatically controls the maximum capacity.
Charging and air conditioning via smartphone. With the range of services available with We Connect Plus, owners of the ID.4 Pro 4MOTION can control many functions remotely through their smartphone. They include charging and electric air conditioning whilst the car is stationary, to ensure the interior is at the ideal temperature by a desired departure time. They can also check the battery charge and the range of the car.
