Does anyone know if the AWD variant will also have the permanent magnet synchronous motor for the front? Also, as the ID.4 can coast in "D," how is the PMSM decoupled?

The ID.4 has an electronic differential. This is how it can regulate traction in curves and direct more torque to the outside wheel. I am guessing this device or the gearbox right next to it disengages for coasting.

The ID.4 has XDS, which other VW's such as the GTI and GLI have. It's a brake-based traction control system that tries to mimic a limited slip differential. I'm far from an electrical engineer, so I don't know how to explain the how, but I'm guessing the motor goes into "neutral," similar to how the car can actually be put in neutral despite there being a constant mechanical connection between the motor and the output shafts. I'd be very surprised if there's any type of mechanical disconnect involved at all.
