Spotlight: Volkswagen ID.4 Electric SUV
2023 Volkswagen ID.4
Want to drive a car for your daily commute in Cincinnati that doesn’t require weekly gasoline fill-ups? Check out the gas-free ID.4 at Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati. This all-electric SUV runs entirely on rechargeable power that you can replenish overnight in your garage. Here’s what makes the 2023 VW ID.4 a winner for commuters in the Cincinnati area.
A ride that’s ready for your daily commute
The 2023 ID.4 can have one or two electric motors and a 62- or 82-kWh battery pack. The single rear-mounted motor produces a peppy 201 horsepower, but the dual-motor version generates a lively 295 horsepower for energized all-wheel drive. The quick acceleration from instant torque won’t feel sluggish when you merge onto the I-75 or I-71 highways.
With that strength at your disposal, you can hitch up to 2,700 pounds to a properly outfitted 2023 ID.4. That lets you take a pop-up camper for a weekend getaway in southern Ohio’s state parks or Kentucky’s national forests. The SUV even automatically starts up when you sit in the driver’s seat and have your key fob on hand.
Recharging made easy
Never driven an electric vehicle before? No worries! The Volkswagen ID.4 makes it easy for newcomers to grasp the basics. Like any type of car, the ID.4 has a maximum range it can travel when fully juiced. The EPA estimates the average range of the 2023 ID.4 to be 275, enough for a round-trip drive from Cincinnati to Columbus or Louisville.
When the battery on your ID.4 depletes, you’ll need to plug it into a charging station instead of a gas station. You can either hook it up to a public DC fast-charging station to regain up to 80% in 30-36 minutes. Or, you can plug in at home in a Level 2 wall box unit overnight for a slower replenishment.
Style that’s familiar yet futuristic
At an initial glance, the Volkswagen ID.4 resembles any other SUV in the automaker’s lineup. That’s because VW designed the ID.4 to be approachable and familiar for shoppers who don’t want a gaudy-looking SUV. The only differences you’ll see are the lack of a front grille and optional accents like front fender wings.
On the inside, the ID.4 offers more futuristic design elements, such as its pulsing ID.Light bar that runs across the dashboard. A 10- or 12-inch media screen with Discover Pro navigation sits atop the dashboard. And, the ID.4 looks truly dapper when outfitted with the available gray-and-blue Cosmic leatherette cabin trim.
A peaceful, protective ride
Being an EV, the ID.4 operates in almost total silence, giving you a peaceful commute without loud idling or a mechanical roar as you stomp the accelerator pedal. And, zero emissions result in cleaner air to breathe around the vehicle.
When evaluated by the IIHS, the ID.4 proved its passenger protection by earning a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. In addition to being carefully designed to shield you in collisions, the 2023 ID.4 also helps prevent accidents with its optional IQ.DRIVE features. This suite gives you tools like Active Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, and Lane Assist.
Space for passengers and cargo
The ID.4 is designed to be compact in body dimensions while comfortable for passengers in all five seats. Its headroom and legroom measurements are comparable to the smallest VW SUV in the lineup, the Toas, making this small SUV suitable for working commuters or parents with 1-2 children. This electric SUV offers a few extra cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats than the Taos does, reaching a total 64 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat.
The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 SUV wants to be your transition from fossil fuels into the future of the automotive industry. Make the leap into tomorrow by contacting Joseph Volkswagen of Cincinnati today to discuss buying or leasing an ID.4.
