The popular electric SUV will now include Plug&Charge functionality at Electrify America (EA) charging stations. This exciting development simplifies the charging experience, making it more convenient and user-friendly.
Seamless Charging for 2023 ID.4 Owners
If you’re the proud owner of a 2023 VW ID.4, you’re in for a treat. Volkswagen has introduced Plug&Charge support, allowing you to tap into the benefits effortlessly. Starting in early 2024, you can activate this feature via the Electrify America app, streamlining the charging process.
Plug&Charge relies on advanced V2G communication technology, incorporating robust security measures to ensure the safety of your transactions.

What’s more, it’s the pioneer among open DC fast-charging networks to introduce Plug&Charge for compatible EVs equipped with CCS charging connectors.
ID.4: Your Choices, Your Way
The 2023 ID.4 comes in three trim levels: Standard/Pro, S, and S Plus. You can choose from 62 kWh and 82 kWh battery options, as well as between rear-wheel drive (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations. Notably, the 2023 ID.4 qualifies for the $7,500 Inflation Reduction Act tax credit.
