For 2022, the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 Pro gets an EPA-estimated range improvement of 20 miles over MY21 for a total of 280 miles, and will be adding Auto Hold, 135 kW DC fast charging, and Plug & Charge features throughout the model year. Three years of 30-minute fast charging sessions with Electrify America are included at no additional cost.
