Perhaps VW Canada wanted to keep the number of configurations to a minimum until production moves to the US.Before this announcement, I thought they would split the statement package up into 2 making an AWD at 50k and an AWD come in at 55k to give the glass roof and some other options. The big 8k package is kind of odd if they make not available for the federal rebate. Esp. in Ontario where there isn't a provincial rebate.
For now, the ID.4 will be available in British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario. After ID.4 production begins at the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant in 2022, the ID.4 will be available nationwide. More information is coming soon.
A good point. I haven't heard back yet about the Fed rebate for the AWD with Statement option. I have to point out though, at 58k, it's 6-8k less than a Model 3 AWD and 12-15k less than a Model Y, that is if you want a colour or bigger wheels with your Model 3 or Y. And the Premium Mach E AWD is around 65k or 7k more than the fully loaded ID4. Now I wonder where the Ioniq 5 AWD will land price wise. Or the Kia EV6 or Ariya.... For me the Ioniq 5 AWD would be my buy if it's in the range of the ID4.Perhaps VW Canada wanted to keep the number of configurations to a minimum until production moves to the US.
