The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 Success Story

The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 emerged as the fifth most popular all-electric model in the U.S. in the preceding year. However, it faced a brief hiatus from the federal tax credit list on January 1, 2024, due to stringent requirements on local battery components. Despite this, it left an indelible mark on the EV landscape, setting the stage for the highly anticipated 2024 model.

A Glimpse into the Future: ID.7 and ID. Buzz

Volkswagen hints at an exciting future with the imminent arrival of the ID.7 and ID. Buzz models. These additions promise to further diversify Volkswagen’s electric vehicle lineup, catering to a broader spectrum of consumer preferences.

Federal Tax Credit Eligibility

Volkswagen assures that the existing 2023 ID.4 models, equipped with SK On battery components, placed in service in 2024 will qualify for the full $7,500 federal tax credit. Simultaneously, the forthcoming 2024 Volkswagen ID.4, upon release with SK On components, is also expected to be fully eligible. It’s worth noting that the qualification for MY24 ID.4 is contingent on the availability of batteries yet to be produced. Volkswagen expresses optimism that the vehicles will maintain eligibility throughout 2024, providing regular updates on the matter.

The recent update on the website, corroborated by Internal Revenue Service information, solidifies the ID.4’s return to the list of vehicles eligible for the federal tax credit. This affirmation opens avenues for potential incentives, including leasing options, in alignment with varying requirements.

Affordability and Popularity

Volkswagen emphasizes that the ID.4 stands out as an affordable all-electric model, with a starting price of $38,995. The federal tax credit further enhances its appeal, contributing to its popularity evidenced by nearly 38,000 sales in 2023. Notably, Volkswagen distinguishes itself as the sole foreign automaker with a battery electric vehicle qualifying for the full Federal Tax credit. This distinction is attributed to the local production of the car and its batteries, specifically the SK On components.
