In keeping with the Volkswagen ID.4 configurator for the U.S. market, the automotive’s towing functionality will likely be 2,200 lbs (998 kg) within the rear-wheel-drive variations with a braked trailer.

The next all-wheel-drive model will be capable of pull braked trailers of as much as 2,700 lbs (1,224 kg).

“Most tow ranking for braked trailer solely when outfitted with acceptable third-party trailer brake controller and factory-installed towing hitch. Automobile load, different equipment, and choices could scale back most towing capability. See automobile Proprietor’s Handbook for particulars.”

That is not unhealthy, but additionally far under the beforehand hinted 1,900 kg (under 4,200 lbs) in a video teaser in Europe.

After we double-checked the British reservation website, it exhibits that the at the moment accessible rear-wheel-drive model is prepared for 750 kg (unbraked) or 1,000 kg (braked) masses, just like the U.S. RWD model:

“Does your passion want in depth gear? Do you could have quite a bit to move for work? No drawback in any respect for the ID.4: the optionally available towing bracket is designed for masses as much as 750 kg (unbraked) or 1,000 kg (braked). In the event you don’t want the towing bracket in the intervening time, you’ll be able to fold it out of sight beneath the bumper in a couple of straightforward steps.”
