Electric vehicles are more popular than ever in Des Moines and beyond, and two of the most in-demand SUVs right now are the Volkswagen ID.4 and Tesla Model Y. These two models are back for 2022, with the Model Y being the newest Tesla and the ID.4 being the first-ever electric Volkswagen. They’re both great choices for drivers looking to upgrade to an EV, but only one will ultimately best suit your driving needs. The team at Lithia Volkswagen of Des Moines has put together a guide comparing the VW vs. Tesla in terms of price, performance, features, and more. So, if you’re stuck deciding between a Volkswagen and a Tesla in Des Moines, we’ve got you covered. Read on for our electric SUV comparison!
Price is usually one of the first things that drivers consider when comparing two vehicles, and there’s a glaring difference in cost between the VW vs. Tesla. The ID.4 starts at $40,760 (which can be potentially lessened to $33,260 with the federal tax credit), while the Model Y starts at $58,690, making the ID.4 around $18,000 cheaper. For drivers who are on a budget but still want a high-performing electric vehicle, the ID.4 is the way to go. Here’s the full list of available trims and their price tags:
Both the Volkswagen ID.4 and Tesla Model Y have plenty of high-tech features, but you’ll find that most of the Tesla’s best features come only as add-ons for a much higher price tag. For example, if you want the Tesla’s famous Full Self-Driving Capability, expect to pay as much as $12,000 extra! The Volkswagen ID.4 specifications come with a long list of standard features that don’t come at an enormous extra cost, such as:
Two of the most important abilities of any electric vehicle are range and charging. While the Tesla Model Y has a longer electric range–330 miles to the ID.4’s 280 miles–Volkswagen offers some important savings on charging sessions.
If you buy a new 2022 Volkswagen ID.4, you’ll also get 3 years of included 30-minute charging sessions (from the date of purchase) at the network of Electrify America DC Fast Charging Stations in the Urbandale and beyond, at no additional cost!
