Volkswagen ID.4 in a city with steam behind it

What’s the difference between the Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition and the Volkswagen ID.4 Pro?

VW ID.4 Pro Vs. 1st Edition

The Volkswagen fanbase is highly excited about the automaker’s new ID.4 crossover EV that just recently opened up for reservations. People are so excited, in fact, that the limited “1st Edition” variation of the model has already sold out.

A slightly less expensive version known as the ID.4 Pro is still on the market. What makes the Pro different from the 1st Edition ID.4?

Key Features of the Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition

The Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition started at an MSRP of $43,995 before destination charges and the application of the $7,500 federal EV incentive. Special features of the Volkswagen ID.4 1st Edition include:

  • Black painted roof
  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • Premium LED headlights
  • Illuminated grille
  • Panoramic fixed glass roof
  • White interior accents
  • 1st Edition badging throughout

Volkswagen is planning to electrify all their cars. We can’t help but wonder: are they also going to electrify their sausages?

Key Features of the Volkswagen ID.4 Pro

The Volkswagen ID.4 Pro starts at an MSRP of $39,995 before destination charges and the application of EV incentives (both federal and local). Main features found on the VW ID.4 Pro include:

  • Glass panoramic sunroof
  • LED headlights and taillights
  • 19-inch five-spoke wheels
  • Illuminated door handles, grille and logo
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Heated mirrors
  • And other standard amenities

Those who desire even more premium features on their ID.4 Pro can opt for any of several packages on offer. The ID.4 Pro will begin shipping to buyers by mid-2021.

What does the VW ID.4 1st Edition have that the ID.4 Pro does not?

Comparing the lists above, the main exclusive elements of the First Edition ID.4 look to be the black painted roof, wheels that are one-inch larger and made of alloy, special interior accents, and unique 1st Edition badging.

Both the 1st Edition and Pro variations of the ID.4 boast a 201-horsepower motor outfitted with rear-wheel drive. They get a 250-mile range.

Will there be more VW ID.4 variations in the future?

Yes, it is expected that other ID.4 variants will come to the U.S. before the ID.4 product cycle comes to a close. So if you don’t see what your after right now, despair not: there’s still hope.
