Reservations for the ID.4 are going to start next month and will require a $100 refundable deposit.

It will be done through an online portal that should look something like this. To help you decide what you're looking for, there be tools like a range estimator and a savings calculator that compares the cost of the ID.4 to an ICE vehicle.

Once you've decided, you will be able to configure your vehicle the way you like. We should expect 3 trim levels (and a limited first edition), 7 colors, and a simplified options for powertrain (RWD or AWD).

After you've selected your options you will be able to reserve your car with a $100 refundable deposit. At this stage you will be able to select your dealership and be able to track your order.

At about the halfway mark to your delivery VW will ask you for an additional $400 vehicle deposit to lock your order. The combined $500 will be applied to the purchase price and will still be refundable throughout the pre-order process.

To finalize your order you will need to enter your selected dealership. If you don't want to reserve online you can do the whole thing at a dealer as well.

Once production starts to pick up there will be ID.4s at dealers available for test drives.

Some added information I just came across. This is likely contingent on how things are going with COVID.

  • Demos could available at dealers as early as November 2020
  • First deliveries will be FWD models starting in December 2020
  • All-wheel drive models will be delivered 3-6 months after

I was hoping to see news of an ID.4 Launch Edition but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Found some more details directly from VW:


NEWSROOM: RSVP for an EV SUV with a $100 reservation for the Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle
Aug 28, 2020

In good times or bad, people need their vehicles. Over the past few months, Volkswagen of America has worked with dealers on a new shopping and buying experience so our customers can shop from home. Next month, Volkswagen will unveil its first electric SUV, the ID.4 -- and a new system that allows customers to reserve their car.
The Volkswagen reservation platform will make its debut on Sept. 23rd, immediately following the reveal of the all-new, zero-tailpipe emission Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle at 11 a.m. EDT. on VW.com. Customers who want to experience the future of driving will be able to reserve an ID.4 before it hits dealer showrooms later this year.
The easy-to-use platform lets Volkswagen fans reserve an ID.4 in a few simple steps. The platform also includes shopping tools such as a range estimator, payment tool and dealer selection to assist shoppers with finding an ID.4 model and making the transition to EV ownership.
“Our online reservations portal will give those who are ready to make the switch to an EV SUV a place at the front of the line,” said Duncan Movassaghi, executive vice president, sales and marketing for Volkswagen. “We’re excited to share the future of Volkswagen with the ID.4. It’s a compelling, zero direct emissions alternative to the compact SUVs on the market today.”
Once a user has built their vehicle, they can secure their place in line with a fully refundable $100 reservation payment. As vehicle production starts, our reservation holders will be invited to lock their configuration and confirm their order with an additional $400 deposit. From placing a reservation, to production and through delivery, the customer can see where they stand and when they can expect their ID. 4 to arrive at their preferred local VW dealer. At that time, the customer can transact with their dealer and complete their purchase.
Volkswagen plans to offer the ID.4 electric vehicle across all 50 states, and throughout its network of more than 600 dealers. The reservation platform will also invite owners and prospective EV customers to become insiders by allowing them to subscribe to Volkswagen’s latest EV news as it plans to sell 26 million electric vehicles globally by 2029.

I believe you meant to type Rear wheel drive (RWD) only initially with AWD drive to follow. ;)

I found that unusual but figure that a RWD electric is far less complicated-costly to produce than FWD.

Thanks for all your help in this forum.
