Volkswagen begins ID.4 electric vehicle production in the US

Volkswagen has started production of its ID.4 all-electric crossover SUV in the United States. The automaker announced Tuesday that it plans to scale production of the ID.4 at its Chattanooga, Tenn., plant to 7,000 vehicles per month by the end of 2022, before further ramping up production throughout 2023.

According to Volkswagen, customers can expect deliveries from October, starting with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive variants of the 82 kWh model. Later this year, the factory will also start manufacturing the cheaper 62 kWh variant. To date, the automaker claims to have delivered more than 190,000 ID.4 units worldwide since it launched the crossover last year.

Volkswagen credits this week’s milestone to an $800 million investment the company made to electrify its Chattanooga factory. With today’s announcement, the plant is now one of six locations worldwide where Volkswagen produces electric vehicles. In March, the automaker said it would spend $7.1 billion over the next five years to increase its electric vehicle manufacturing capacity in North America. By 2030, Volkswagen wants to account for around 55 percent of its sales in the USA with electric vehicles.
