Volkswagen has announced the next advancement of the VW ID.4 with software updates. New features to enhance the charging experience and further improve system performance will be available on 2021 models and certain 2022 models.

The ID.4 has been very successful to Volkswagen – both in bringing new customers into the brand and in introducing traditional ICE drivers to EVs,” said Andrew Savvas, Executive Vice President, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Volkswagen North America Region. “We’re excited to upgrade the software in MY21 and certain MY22 ID.4s to enhance the user experience.”


One of the unique parts of the ID.4 offer is the included three years of fast-charging on the Electrify America network – the nation’s largest open DC fast-charging network – and is the latest iteration of the EV’s software makes it easier to find Electrify America stations while on the go. The upgrade adds a charge routing feature to the native navigation system on the ID.4, which allows drivers to filter for Electrify America stations only, or for certain levels of charging speeds available at any station.


Another feature that is certainly worth mentioning is the Auto Hold. Once drivers bring their vehicle to a complete stop, they can release the brake pedal and Auto Hold secures the vehicle from rolling away until the accelerator pedal is engaged. This particular feature can be deactivated with a shortcut menu if desired.


Finally, more information for drivers is added to the ID. Cockpit digital display with the software upgrade. Battery information is communicated with state of charge percentage added to the existing battery icon and range shown in the display. Also new to the ID. Cockpit display: a trip computer adding current driving data and ambient temperature.


Owner of 2021 models will receive notice asking them to book in-person appointments with their local Volkswagen dealer for the software update and replacement of the vehicle’s 12-bolt battery. Those that are in a 2022 model will be notified shortly regarding steps for updates to their ID. 4.
