Volkswagen is now building the ID.4 electric crossover at its plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. VW hopes to ramp up production to 7,000 ID.4 SUVs rolling off the production line a month in Q4 of this year, with even more output planned for 2023.
“We’re just starting to write a new chapter for Volkswagen in America, and it is very much an American story,” said Thomas Schäfer, Chairman of the global Volkswagen brand. “When we promised to bring Volkswagen EVs to the millions, it always included American workers building those EVs right there in Chattanooga. We couldn’t be prouder to see that vision realized today with our ID.4 electric flagship rolling off the lines. This is another milestone in Volkswagen’s ambitious electrification strategy for the U.S. market and globally.”
The Chattanooga plant is the sixth global site that builds VW’s electric models.
We’re still waiting for the official details, but VW has already confirmed a new rear-wheel drive version of the ID.4 with a 62 kWh battery, which will give it a lower starting price.
