Does anyone have any insight/guesses/inside information about the status of the Pro S Plus AWDs? My estimated delivery changed from Oct-Nov 2022 to Q1 2023.

I remember reading about the memo to a Canadian dealer about part shortage and delay of production until November, does that apply to US models too? Have any actual Pro S Plus AWD trims even been produced? It's likely the highest margin (in terms of profit) so I would think VW would be prioritizing their production...

As pre the Reservation Assistant plugin:

ID.4 AWD Pro S36%
ID.4 AWD Pro S Plus17%
ID.4 Pro12%
ID.4 Pro S12%
ID.4 AWD Pro7%
ID.4 Standard6%
ID.4 Pro S Plus5%
ID.4 S5%

The most popular trim is the AWD Pro S.
The least popular are the Pro S Plus (RWD) and S (Small battery RWD) .

If the production line has top be reconfigured every time they change trim, can't mix and match different trims on the same line, then I expect the RWD Pro S Plus and S will be the last ones scheduled for production.

Of course I am not an expert in vehicle production nor a VW decision maker, so this is just an opinion with no factual basis underlying it.

It has to be a parts issue. I've seen some threads pointing to 360 cameras. Gradients always moved up the line with the 2022s. I expect when parts are available, the plus models will jump to the front.

Yes they have parts shortages for 360 Camera, folding mirrors till mid November and Premium sound is gone from 2023 completely. If you look at your booking, you may see price must have gone down accordingly. In Canada they reduced price for all affected cars by whopping 800CAD, around 500 USD and for all 2023 statement package, price came down from 5000CAD to 4700CAD without premium audio.

In Canada Statement package includes all these, hence Canadian dealers got that email. If by any chance your Pro S Plus is produced before Nov 15 (don't know about starting date), it is almost guaranteed that it will be missing these features as it is going to be produced at the same factory. Also compared to US Canada hardly gets 5-10% of total cars so it makes no sense to not include that in just 5% of the cars and add it to 95%, it will be in all or none.

if my pro s plus awd is locked, is there nothing i can do to get a pro s awd instead? i heard of some people getting vehicles that the customer no longer wanted from the dealer at msrp if they have a reservation, although my dealer adds a useless 3k ceramic coating add on for those i think

Yes, I find the reservation assistant plugin to be such a wealth of information and am thankful for its existence! However, it does not actually tell us anything about what cars are being produced at the factory- only which cars are being matched up to reservations. For example, the cars that are being delivered in the coming days were likely produced weeks before they were matched with reservations/there was any sign of their existence on the assistant plugin.

I haven't seen any videos about the Pro S Plus model beyond exterior shots of the Artic Blue model. That makes me think they haven't even produced enough to include as press cars which seems to align with the thought of severe part shortages. That really dashes my hopes for getting one by the end of the calendar year...

@Plant Peon where are you guys hiding all the Pro S Plus AWD models?! Have they been produced in meaningful numbers yet?

And if you’re just one motor short of MDK’s Pro S Plus AWD, you can build my Pro S Plus RWD!

I just got an email to lock my Pro S Plus RWD from May, but when I try to log in I am getting a blank screen. Guess I'll keep trying.

It finally happened. My 5/8/22 Pro S RWD reservation just locked tonight. I’ll be damned.

Totally caught me by surprise to receive the email at 8:58pm Pacific time. Stoked to be part of the lock club finally. Delivery Estimate 2023 Q1.

It's likely that production numbers as well as information about what is being built are considered to be competitive information and are therefore privileged to VW employees only, and then probably only on a need-to-know basis. Outsiders will likely never know this information unless an insider leaks it.

And hopefully you didn't choose a blue one, because those seem to be "back of the line" as well.
