Volkswagen has announced that the 2023 VW ID.4 will get access to Plug&Charge at Electrify America stations.
The VW ID.4 Plug&Charge is now a thing! Upon activating the Plug&Charge feature in the Electrify America app, you can simply plug in your 2023 ID.4 EV to any Electrify America DC fast charging station. Once the connection is established, your vehicle will initiate the charging process automatically. It’s as easy as that!
Plug&Charge streamlines the charging experience at Electrify America DC fast charging stations, eliminating the necessity to engage with a mobile app to initiate a charging session. Once activated within their inclusive charging plan, ID.4 owners can effortlessly “plug in,” and upon establishing the connection, their vehicle will commence charging automatically. This innovative feature enhances efficiency and convenience for customers.
How to activate Plug&Charge for your VW ID.4:
- Open the Electrify America app.

The 2023 ID.4 comes in three distinct trim levels—Standard/Pro, S, and S Plus.
The Volkswagen ID.4 provides the flexibility to choose from either 62 kWh or 82 kWh batteries, along with the choice of either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
The 2023 ID.4 is currently available with two battery sizes and two powertrain options. The entry-level ID.4 Standard, equipped with a 62 kWh battery and boasting an EPA-estimated range of 209 miles, starts at an MSRP of $38,995. For those seeking an extended range, the ID.4 Pro, featuring an 82 kWh battery with an EPA-estimated range of 275 miles, starts at $43,995. Both models are powered by a single permanent magnet synchronous motor, delivering 201 horsepower to the rear wheels.
For enthusiasts of all-wheel drive, the ID.4 AWD Pro models, starting at $47,795, incorporate an additional asynchronous motor on the front axle. This upgrade results in a maximum power output of 295 horsepower, all-wheel-drive capability, and an EPA-estimated range of 255 miles.
The 2023 ID.4 Standard and S variants come with a 140-kW DC fast-charging rate, while the Pro models, featuring the larger 82 kWh battery, boast an upgraded 170-kW DC fast-charging speed compared to the 2022 version. This enhancement enables all ID.4 Pro trims to DC fast charge from 10-80% state of charge in approximately 30 minutes.
Enjoying the ownership experience of an ID.4 has never been more convenient, thanks to the inclusion of three years of complimentary 30-minute charging sessions at Electrify America DC fast chargers. This added benefit aims to instill confidence in the vehicle’s range capabilities.
