I just got my id4 pro and there was no tow hitch installed. I asked the dealership to order one for me and they told me that the car isn't designed to tow any thing. I emailed vw north America and complained because I had purchased the car thinking I would be able to tow a small light trailer. I am very disappointed with thier advertising of this capability but not delivering it to me. I went back onto the website to see if there was any indication that I could choose a tow package on the pro series and there is not. They either did this on purpose or are so unconcerned with the customer that they don't care about complaints.

Since I placed my reservation in December, the spec lists have been pretty clear that the RWD Pro models do not have a hitch receiver, only 1st Edition and AWD Pro. Sorry you missed this distinction. It's the main reason I reserved an AWD and then switched to 1st Edition when more became available in January.

I wish I would have seen that. I tried to get a first addition but missed it. I will add an after market hitch when they come out. There are advertisements indicating the rwd model pulls 2200 lbs. Same drive train and battery pack I think they are just making it more profitable.

The models that were designed to tow appear to have larger front brake rotors. Does the RWD Pro have the wiring for towing?
