The VW ID 4 EV is now assembled at Chattanooga USA

The Volkswagen ID-4 rolls off the production line at the company’s plant in Chattanooga, TN, USA.

 VW began assembling its all-electric SUV off the coast of the US. The cheaper, less battery-powered ID 4  is expected to be available this year.

If you prefer cheaper American-made cars, you can add the Volkswagen ID 4 to your list. VW has today bring EV production to its Chattanooga, Tennessee plant, with the first cars rolling off the line now ahead of expected October deliveries.

VW has invested $ 800 million in its Chattanooga facility. Currently, the ID 4 vehicles made in the US will use  North American components, including battery packs.

Consumers are demanding more and more crossover SUVs. This makes Chattanooga the sixth plant in the world capable of producing MEB-based VW electric vehicles, a platform that includes not only US ID 3 and the long-awaited ID Buzz.

The first versions of the ID 4 produced in the US will have all-wheel or rear-wheel drive with a larger 82 kilowatt-hour battery. The promised, more affordable 62 kWh version is still on target for next year. There is no price on it yet, but we hope it will be in the $ 30,000 mid-range.
