Volkswagen is going to take the wraps off the ID.4 electric crossover on September 23, but on Monday it announced that the EV will come with three years of unlimited charging. The free charging will be available to owners that use Electrify America’s growing network of chargers.
Currently Electrify America has 470 charging stations and over 2,000 DC fast chargers on line. Electrify America is currently the only open, public charging network to offer chargers with power levels up to 350 kilowatts. VW says that currently 96 percent of the population lives within 120 miles of an Electrify America charger.
“The ID.4 was engineered, loaded and priced to win the hearts of SUV owners who are simply ready to go electric—and fall in love with Volkswagen again,” said Scott Keogh, CEO, Volkswagen Group of America. “By adding three years of fast charging at no additional cost through Electrify America, we are eliminating all barriers for mainstream compact SUV buyers to go electric.”
