The Volkswagen ID.4 is a small electric SUV that is experiencing international success. The VW ID.4 may not have made huge waves in America yet, but rivals better watch out. Check out a new Volkswagen and Marvel collaborative advertisement starring the Volkswagen ID.4, Ant-Man, and The Wasp in the video below.

The Volkswagen ID.4 is coming for rivals

The Volkswagen ID.4 debuted back in September 2020. Since then, it has rivaled the popular Tesla Model Y small electric SUV in European sales. Volkswagen is producing ID.4 models in four different plants internationally. Volkswagen clearly has big plans for the small electric SUV nameplate.

There’s not telling whether or not the new Volkswagen ID.4 will pop up in the new Ant-Man and The Wasp : Quantumania film, but the new ad above could get plenty of attention since the film plays a vital role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Volkswagen ID.4 competes with the best in its class including the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Toyota bZ4X, Subaru Solterra, and many more. The ID.4 is among the most affordable small electric SUVs on the market. It starts at just $38,995 for the Standard base model.

The base ID.4 gets 209 miles of driving range. The Pro with LG Battery trim level gets a whopping 275 miles of driving range. It starts at $43,995, which is closer to the starting price of rivals. Volkswagen has produced a formidable small electric SUV, and it only appears to be getting better with time.

Do they make Volkswagen ID.4 SUVs in America?

Volkswagen is producing ID.4 models in Chattanooga, Tennessee. There’s no telling how this will affect the small electric SUV’s tax credit eligibility. Federal electric vehicle tax incentives have become even more confusing following the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. That being said, if the VW ID.4 does qualify, it’d be a sweet deal, but your decision to purchase one shouldn’t be dependent on its tax credit eligibility.

The Volkswagen ID.4 isn’t a best-selling electric vehicle in America yet, but its availability and VW marketing campaigns could give the EV the push it needs to compete with models like the Hyundai Ioniq 5. The VW ID.4 could be the first electric vehicle to help the company establish a strong EV presence in North America. Let the games begin.

The Volkswagen ID.4 has a bright future in America. VW is playing a huge role in the electric future of the United States because of its charging station company Electrify America. The German automaker has been in hot water a number of times because of carbon emissions.

Now, it’s turning a new leaf and investing millions of dollars into carbon neutral vehicles and charging infrastructure. Electrify America could become incredibly lucrative for VW in the next decade, depending on how accessible the chargers are, and how quickly they can charge EVs. According to The Verge, TravelCenters of America is buying 1,000 fast charging stations from the company for travel stops. It’s an exciting new chapter in Volkswagen’s history.
