It's a simple software handshake. DC fast charging already includes quite a bit of communication back and forth. Recall that the car tells the charging station how much current it wants at any given time during the charge cycle, not the other way around.

If the charger in the ID.4 can be firmware upgraded, hopefully via regular over the air updates, this should be a possibility later on.

Out of Spec Motoring mentioned on their review of the ID.4 that it does support Plug and Charge. It's at 3:51 in the video. Given that he test drove the vehicle yesterday, and talked to a lot of VW folks, I think he got that straight.

He mentioned it's coming in 2022 as an OTA software update, right? In general, it was great to hear that VW has designed virtually everything to be update-able via OTA updates.
