Volkswagen ID.4 Production Kicks Off in Tennessee

Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

The VW electric revolution has reached American assembly lines. In July, production kicked off on the new Volkswagen ID.4 at the automaker’s production facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This marks the first WV EV built in the United States — but certainly not the last.

Volkswagen plans to ramp production of the all-electric ID.4 up to 7,000 units a month by the end of the year. Output should only increase through 2023 — just like we expect the popularity of this fun-to-drive, affordable electric vehicle to skyrocket.

This EV is a true American product. Not only is it built in Tennessee, but most of its components and materials are sourced from states like Alabama, Ohio, Kentucky, and the Carolinas. Volkswagen has helped create some 3,000 supplier jobs by bringing production of the ID.4 to America.

“When we promised to bring Volkswagen EVs to the millions, it always included American workers building those EVs right here in Chattanooga,” said Volkswagen Chairman Thomas Schäfer. “We couldn’t be prouder to see that vision realized today with our ID.4 electric flagship rolling off the lines.”

VW will continue to grow its EV lineup through 2022, and that means exciting developments to come. By 2024, you can expect to see an all-electric fastback sedan and the road-trip, van-life-ready ID.Buzz rolling into Lewisville Volkswagen in Lewisville, Texas.

Volkswagen ID. AERO | Lewisville, TX

The future is arriving at Lewisville Volkswagen — and in style. VW has been rolling out its ID. lineup of all-electric models, which have been steadily arriving at our dealership in Lewisville, Texas. The latest electric car being produced with the VW badge? The Volkswagen ID. AERO.

The ID. AERO show car is a midsize sedan that serves as a concept model for the automaker’s forthcoming production model. In other words, this one-off car is a preview of the futuristic finesse that the production-version ID. AERO will bear.

You’ll immediately notice how sleek the ID. AERO is compared to other VW sedans we sell at Lewisville Volkswagen. That’s because designers shaped this sedan with aerodynamics as the top priority.

ICYMI: VW Debuted “Obi-Wan Kenobi”-Inspired ID. Buzz Models

Volkswagen ID.Buzz | Lewisville, TX

Are you ready to say “Hello there!” to the van of the future? Then the Volkswagen ID. Buzz is the vehicle you’re looking for!

Volkswagen used the recent Obi Wan-Kenobi limited series to showcase a comeback of its own: the VW Microbus. Receiving a next-century update, the iconic miniature bus runs entirely on electricity and has taken on a new name as the ID. Buzz.

In collaboration with Star Wars, the automaker creature two exclusive editions of the upcoming ID. Buzz, which both debuted on the red carpet at this year’s Star Wars Celebration.

  • The ID. Buzz ‘Light Side Edition’ features blue and off-white exterior coloring that evokes the color palate of Kenobi’s wardrobe. Those are contrasted by chrome body panels that resemble the metal-plated droids and spacecraft from the franchise.
  • The ID. Buzz ‘Dark Side Edition’ takes its style from Obi-Wan’s nemesis and former padawan, Darth Vader. The blacked-out exterior with crimson red accents is reminiscent of the menacing Sith lord.

Advertising for the all-electric ID. Buzz was created in partnership with Lucasfilm and I.L.M., two of the most influential companies in Hollywood — or the universe, for that matter. While you can’t buy these licensed Star Wars I.D. Buzz models, you can ride home in a production version of the electric Microbus. Luckily, you don’t have to travel to a galaxy far, far away to drive the Volkswagen ID.Buzz. You can find it right here in Lewisville at Lewisville Volkswagen. Visit our dealership to learn more about this futuristic SUV. We think you’ll have a good feeling about it!

How to Maintain a Car Not Driven Often

2021 Volkswagen ID4 | Lewisville, TX

With more and more workers in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area having remote jobs, there’s a good possibility that you’re one of these people who doesn’t drive their car as often as they used to. Working from home in Lewisville can be great for your mental health, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect the vehicle parked in your driveway. Here’s what you should do to properly maintain a car that’s not driven often.

Rotate and Protect the Tires

Being parked for a prolonged period puts a lot of pressure on your car’s wheels, especially the tires. This can cause them to form flats spots or weaken their integrity. Roll your vehicle slightly backward or forward every few days to shift which area of the tire is carrying the weight. If you plan on not driving your car for a long time, raise it on jack stands.

Keep the Battery Charged

An unused battery has the potential to steadily lose its charge since it relies on the engine running to juice it back up. Without that, your car’s battery will need something else to keep it charged. We recommend connecting it to a trickle charger, which can keep the battery full when it’s not in use.

Keep the Oil Fresh

Just because you’re not driving your car doesn’t mean the engine oil is staying unblemished. The fluid can still become contaminated over time simply by resting in the motor and coming in contact with the gunk and metal surfaces in there. Make sure you’re still scheduling an oil change at Lewisville Volkswagen every six months at least.

Schedule a service appointment with your vehicle at Lewisville Volkswagen so it’s always ready to drive when you need it.

VW ID.4 EV Wins CarBuzz 2021 Save The Planet Award

2021 Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

Many automakers are releasing new electric models for sale here in Lewisville, but not every EV wins an award as prestigious as CarBuzz’s Save The Planet Award — which the Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV won at the end of 2021.

Save The Planet

CarBuzz only gives this award to electric-powered models that are capable, useful vehicles for daily life and not merely zero-emissions automobiles with no practical elements for your everyday needs. Plus, a Save The Planet Award-winner has to be fun to drive.

Premium Interior

As CarBuzz Editor-at-Large Jared Rosenholtz explained, “The rear-drive ID.4 offers respectable power for a compact crossover, while the dual-motor all-wheel-drive model dials up the excitement with nearly 300 horsepower. We loved the ID.4’s nimble driving manners and premium interior.”


When Volkswagen designs a vehicle that’s made for gas-free, eco-friendly driving, the automaker doesn’t mess around. The brand’s engineers began by building a fresh electric vehicle from the ground up — literally. By creating the MEB electric vehicle architecture, Volkswagen is able to craft an EV that’s optimized for performance in ways traditional gas-powered vehicles aren’t, such as the implementation of an asynchronous electric motor on the front axle to strengthen its all-wheel drive.

This VW ID.4 EV award is further proof that the Volkswagen brand’s legacy of top-tier engineering lives on its in new generation of gas-free models. If you’re interested in going green here in Lewisville, Texas, ask about the ID.4 EV here at Lewisville Volkswagen.
