ID.3 & ID.4 Receive Wide Range of Changes as Model Year 2022 Vehicles Open for Order

  • MY22 brings significant changes to ID.3 and ID.4 ordering process for a focus on flexibility and convenience to customers
  • Pre-configured trim-level structure altered in favour of offering customers choice over option packs when ordering an ID.3 or ID.4
  • Seven ID. variants are now eligible for the Plug-in Vehicle Grant

Volkswagen has rolled out updates across the model range as the brand switches to its 2022 model year. The most marked changes are reserved for the ID.3 and ID.4 models. For the first time since launch, the two award-winning EVs are now offered with configurable trim levels, and a range of option packs are now available across all derivatives. The ID.3 also receives a major price revision that sees it represent even better value for money.

As the most notable update in the Model Year 2022 (MY22) revisions, the ID.3 and ID.4 are subject to changes in their ordering process, with greater customisation possible. Previously the trim levels came pre-configured, offering a fixed suite of packages, with only colours and wheels being customisable. The MY22 update sees customers able to choose a trim level that best fits their needs and then specify further option packs on top.

This new structure considerably increases the flexibility of the ID.3 and ID.4 in the customer’s ordering process. For example, previously it was not possible to configure an Augmented Reality Head-up display on any ID.3 model other than the Max and Tour. Now, a customer can choose any trim level and add the Infotainment Package Plus to receive the AR HUD, alongside the additional speakers that are part of the pack. Just as before, the different trim levels will still feature pre-determined packs as standard equipment, but now customers can choose to add additional packs to cater to their individual needs. A list of these packs for both models can be found below.

To further streamline the offering, the recently-introduced ‘City’ trim is now called ‘Life’ while the ‘Business’ and ‘Tech’ equipment levels have been discontinued.

Another significant part of the MY22 changes is a new pricing strategy for the ID.3. Under the new pricing, two more variants become eligible for the Government’s Plug-in Vehicle Grant – bringing the total to six – with the ID.3 Family Pro and Family Pro Performance now sitting under the £35,000 threshold for the £2,500 grant. These models, now priced at £33,640 and £34,960 respectively, fall to £31,140 and £32,460 OTR with the incentive applied. Overall, seven ID. models are now eligible for the grant including the ID.4 Life Pure.

Elsewhere in the ID.3 range, the highly-equipped Max and range-topping Tour have been reduced by £3,800 – the Tour, with its 77 kWh battery and 340-mile range (WLTP, combined) is priced from £38,800, with the equipment-packed Max starting at £37,730. For full pricing details, a table is provided below.

Elsewhere in the Volkswagen range, MY22 has brought subtle tweaks and changes to other models, with new paint colours a theme among the suite of enhancements. The T-Cross benefits from boosted standard equipment with items such as power adjustable, folding heated door mirrors, and a multifunction steering wheel all part of the standard offering. The full range of revisions can be explored in the Volkswagen model configurator:

Andrew Savvas, Director of Volkswagen UK, said: “The battery electric vehicle segment is rapidly evolving and our ID. family of net-carbon-neutral electric vehicles is moving with it. In particular, the ID.3 range is peerless in the breadth of its offering, with several models now available for under £30,000 and different battery options providing a range between 200 and over 300 miles.

ID.3

“The ID.3 is our ‘Electric People’s Car’ and continues to receive acclaim and awards from the motoring press. It’s one of the UK’s best-selling BEVs in the segment according to the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders). The aim of the price revision is to maintain the car’s long-term competitiveness in the fast-moving sector.

“We strive to continue to make e-mobility straightforward and affordable for everyone. These changes to the ID.3 and ID.4 order process, and our pricing update for the ID.3, together demonstrate our commitment to that promise.”
