2022 Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

When you drive an electric vehicle, fuel economy is everything. You don’t want to be stifled by a limited driving range or poor MPGe performance — especially here in Lewisville, Texas.

Volkswagen knows how important performance is for electric and non-electric cars alike. Known for its stellar engineering, the automaker applied its performance prowess to the 2022 VW ID.4 Pro to achieve exceptional fuel economy. The result is an EPA-estimated range of 280 miles.[1]

This all-electric range is an increase of 20 miles over the 2021 ID.4 Pro model, letting you now travel further in this eco-friendly SUV. According to the EPA, VW ID.4 Pro fuel economy rates translate to 121 MPGe in city driving, 102 MPGe in highway driving, and 112 MPGe in combined city/highway driving.[1]

By extracting more efficient performance from every bit of charge from the 82kWh battery, Volkswagen has been able to increase the travel potential for the VW ID.4 Pro—while still achieving 201 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque.

For even more power bolstering your electric SUV, opt for all-wheel drive. The drivetrain adds an asynchronous electric motor on the front axle in addition to the permanent-magnet synchronous motor in the rear. The result? A combined peak of 295 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque.

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.”

Eco-Friendly

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.

Electric Volkswagen ID.4 Is World Car of the Year 2021

Electric Volkswagen ID.4 Is World Car of the Year 2021 | Lewisville, TX

The Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV is on its way to the U.S. in late 2021, and when it arrives it’ll already have won some serious hardware. After input from more than 90 international journalists representing 24 countries, the VW ID.4 was named the World Car of the Year 2021.

This is the 17th year for the World Car of the Year awards and at the virtual award ceremony, the judges recognized the VW ID.4 for its driver-assist technologies as well as its status as an electric vehicle. The jury also appreciated that VW will be maintaining its software with over-the-air updates. The standard ID.Light assistant, which communicates things like vehicle charge and turn signals using a bar of colored LED lights, was also singled out for praise.

“The World Car of the Year award marks a great success for our entire ID. team,” said Thomas Ulbrich, Board Member for Development at the Volkswagen brand. “We have succeeded in developing a car that starts the system change to e-mobility in the world’s most important segment — compact SUVs — and offers excellent everyday usability.

Volkswagen hopes to build and deliver about 150,000 VW ID.4 vehicles this year in the U.S., China, and Europe. To learn more about its availability in the area, contact us at Lewisville Volkswagen in Lewisville, Texas.

Talking Cars Are No Longer Science Fiction Thanks to the VW ID.4

Talking Volkswagen ID.4 | Lewisville, TX

Many outdated depictions of life in modern times would have you believe that our vehicles should be commuting through the clouds and making appointments on our behalf. While we’re still a few years out from flying cars, Volkswagen’s new ID.4 lets you communicate with your vehicle in ways previously unheard of.

Though you won’t be having conversations with your Volkswagen any time soon, VW introduced a sophisticated dash light feature into the new ID.4. The dash light fixture is comprised of 54 miniscule LED lights that illuminate in different hues to communicate vital information to the driver and passengers.

When you sit in the driver’s seat of the ID.4, the dash light row will display a series of blue and white LEDs to welcome you and indicate that you are free to commence your drive. Upon standing up to exit the car, the ID.4’s light bar displays the reverse color scheme to wish you well.

Volkswagen also included a number of other dash light communications, including alerts for incoming phone calls, safety warnings, battery charge level, and navigation. Many more messages are expected to be rolled out.

The VW ID.4’s Coasting Feature Lets You Brake Naturally

VW 1D.4 Coasting Feature | Lewisville, TX

Volkswagen’s new all-electric SUV is a game changer for the future of electric vehicles. On top of its many unique features, one thing that makes the Volkswagen ID.4 stand out is how it uses regenerative braking by applying a coasting function.

The concept of regenerative braking is common in electric vehicles. When a driver lifts their foot off the accelerator pedal, the system detects the loss of pressure, triggering the recovery of electricity and automatic deceleration. However, the Volkswagen ID.4 functions differently.

Volkswagen designed the ID.4’ braking system to function similarly to a standard gas-powered vehicle. When a driver moves their foot from the right pedal, instead of applying regenerative braking, the ID.4 will coast. The ID.4 does still feature regenerative braking, although it activates when the left or brake pedal is used. This gives the driver a feeling of deceleration similar to that of a gas vehicle.

Volkswagen created the ID.4’s coasting and braking function like this in order to make the driving experience more predictable. By emphasizing predictability, familiarity, and driver comfort, the Volkswagen ID.4 SUV will power the way for electric vehicles in the future by normalizing the experience.

VW EVs Will Gain the NXP Battery Management System

Volkswagen EV Gains NXP Battery System | Lewisville, TX

With plans to offer multiple electric vehicles in the next few years, Volkswagen intends to add new technologies to these vehicles to make them more powerful. According to the automaker, one of the first innovations it wants to add is the NXP battery management system.

At the NXP Connects developer conference on Oct. 20, 2020, NXP CEO Kurt Sievers revealed that the company would be partnering with VW. The companies will work to integrate the NXP battery management system into the VW MEB electric vehicle platform.

This updated technology will ultimately increase the driving range and battery life of VW EVs. Currently, the VW ID.4 has an estimated range of 250 miles, so you can take daily commutes and small road trips without worrying about charging.* However, with the new system, this range could be even better and the SUV could be even stronger.

Head of Development for Vehicle Energy Supply and High Voltage Systems at Volkswagen AG, Dr. Holger Manz, also said, “Incorporating a functionally safe battery management system that can scale across many car models makes it easier to achieve the full power potential of a battery, optimized range, and the extension of the battery’s lifetime.”

We at Lewisville Volkswagen are excited about these new VW models and technologies. If you’re interested in learning about the current and upcoming VW models available, be sure to give us a call.

*The ID.4 Pro S and 1st Edition EPA estimated total range is 250 miles. Actual mileage and range will vary and depend on several factors including driving and charging habits, accessory use, temperature and topography, battery age, load, and vehicle condition. Battery capacity decreases with time and use. See owner’s manual for details.
