Got a link to where you heard that? Likely it will have DCFC, but not at the new 170kw rate of the bigger battery. The existing ID.4 Pure model in the EU with a 55kwh battery size does 50kw, and optional 110kw. Its also slower at home charging at 7.2kw versus our existing 11kw. From:
Yes, a RWD Pro S gradient. Looking to replace with a RWD Pro S Plus. For a $100 refundable deposit, it's worth it to me to get in line early for a 2023 and see what it costs to swap. I can always keep my 2021. I'm also in line at my favorite dealer for an early Macan EV, but I'd actually prefer an ID.4 that checks all my boxes (360 degree camera and battery preconditioning being at the top of my list). I don't need a car that goes 0-60 in less than 7 seconds. And I'm afraid I'm addicted to that RWD turning radius (which might even be smaller in the 2023!).I was considering doing the same.
Is your current model RWD? What are you looking to replace it with?
Live Chat on vw.com confirms, the Standard will offer DC fast charging. They don't know the max charging speed yet.
I'm locked with a commission number - build week number 35 (early September.) I'll keep this, but I ordered a 2023 Pro with the larger battery. The tax status being up in the air is something that hopefully gets resolved soon.I upgraded reservation to a 2023 and screen said I kept my place in the line. My reservation was not locked yet.
Yeah I noticed that, hopefully it's just misinformation and the charging is the same speed on all the 2023. I also noticed they mention manual seats, I can't believe at $37,495 they would cheap out on the seats like that.
The Standard will offer DC fast charging, but with the smaller battery, it's unlikely it will be at the 170 kW max of the larger battery models. Of course, with the smaller battery, it might charge 5-80% just as quickly!Yeah I noticed that, hopefully it's just misinformation and the charging is the same speed on all the 2023. I also noticed they mention manual seats, I can't believe at $37,495 they would cheap out on the seats like that.
Huh, when I looked at the Standard, it was all the lower priced equipment, manual seats, no heated steering wheel, etc, priced ~$38K. Where did you see the upgrades?I had two reservations both for the same car (but different colors): 2022 AWD Pro S. The first was reserved on 11/14 and locked on 4/11. It is still at 03. The second was reserved on 6/28 and not locked. When I went to my owner's portal for the second reservation, I was politely told to upgrade to a 2023--I didn't have a choice to stay with the reservation I had (I should have taken a screenshot of the screen but oh well...).
After doing lots of quick reading and research, I opted for the smaller battery ID.4 S at $42,495 (which is $7K less than the car I originally reserved). In some ways it will feel like a clone of my current Leaf--silver with a black interior and same size battery. But this one had options I like (leather seats, power seats with memory, rain sensing wipers. heated seats and steering wheel, power tailgate). My husband loves the Leaf so maybe I'll get the ID.4 which was supposed to be the original plan! Plus, he doesn't like driving brand new cars so that solves that problem! I am giving up the AWD which I thought was important but we'll see. I have gotten to the point in my life and career that if the weather is bad, I can usually stay home so maybe RWD will be fine.
I still have my original reservation, too so I'll just be patient and see what happens!
50kW is slow by today's standards. You must be misunderstanding something about the "quick charge". The Standard range definitely can charge from a DC charger, and I'm sure it's above 100 kW.
VW is known for manual seats. That's the German way for non-luxury vehicle.Yeah I noticed that, hopefully it's just misinformation and the charging is the same speed on all the 2023. I also noticed they mention manual seats, I can't believe at $37,495 they would cheap out on the seats like that.
Pure's maxiumum charging speed is 118 kW. If there is a mention of a lack of "quick charge" option on the Standard range ID.4, it may refer to the ability to get a quick charge on several dozen miles worth of charge at a low SOC. People have already seen the 2022 ID.4 being able to ramp up to over 170 kW for the first few minutes when the SOC is low. So, this may be what VW calls "quick charge" just to get a few dozen miles worth quickly to get you home if you have miscalculated the arrival-at-home SOC and have to stop late at night at a DC charger before getting to your home destination. So, perhaps the Standard range ID.4 may be missing this feature.Don't be so sure yet, some of the Pure model in UK with the smaller 55kwh battery only charge at 50kw.
There is the ID.4, which has the 62 kWh battery and, like you said, cloth seats, manual seats, etc.Huh, when I looked at the Standard, it was all the lower priced equipment, manual seats, no heated steering wheel, etc, priced ~$38K. Where did you see the upgrades?
Also struggling a bit with whether I can get by with RWD in Maine. I'm retired, so most likely, but there's still some doubt, although the road crews do an excellent job of clearing down to pavement most of the time.
