Available as the only twin-motor model except the ID.4 GTX, the new ID.4 Pro delivers slightly less power than the 4Motion GTX. The rear-mounted motor pushes mostly at 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS), while the front motor is designed to help when needed and to stay out of the way when it is not, producing an additional 107 hp (80 kW). / 109 PS). They are combined for a maximum output of 261 hp (195 kW / 265 PS).
It’s shy of ID.4 GTX’s 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS) rating. The ID.4 Pro 4Motion’s 0-62 mph (100 km / h) time is 6.9 seconds, 0.7 seconds slower than the ID.4 GTX, while the maximum speed is limited to 112 mph (180 km / h).

This is intentional though, as the ID.4 Pro 4Motion is designed for the exterior type more than the Speed Freaks. This extra motor means it can pull 441 pounds (200 kg) more than the RWD ID.4 Pro performance for a total capacity of 3,086 pounds (1,400 kg). VW even calls it a powerful tow car that is ideal for small trailers and boats.
The new model comes with a 77 kWh battery pack that, in WLTP cycles, has a range of 321 miles (517 km). Volkswagen says it can charge five to 80 percent in just 36 minutes on a high-speed charger.
With Priscilla now open, the ID.4 Pro 4Motion starts at 49,020 (current exchange rate $ 52,056 USD) in Germany.
