Can the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 be used for towing?

Everyone at Team Gunther Volkswagen has been nothing but impressed with what the VW ID.4 has to offer customers. It’s every bit as efficient as we had been told it would be and its performance specs and handling dynamics more than meet expectations. However, we’ve also had several potential customers come into the showroom to ask, ‘Can the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 be used for towing?’ Yes, it can! Previously available electric vehicles have been focused on other areas and the new VW model uses its advanced electric propulsion technology to deliver a more familiar crossover SUV experience. While the 2021 VW ID.4 can’t quite pull heavy equipment, it has more than enough towing capacity to be more than competitive in its class.

2021 ID.4 Towing Capacity Information 

A 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 can pull a braked trailer weighing up to 2,200 pounds and unbraked loads of up to 1,650 pounds. This is more than enough towing capacity to pull a light boat, a couple of kayaks or help a friend move a couch, using a light trailer. For comparison, entry-level versions of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport with the four-cylinder engine can pull 2,000 pounds and most versions of the current Toyota RAV4 will have a maximum towing capacity of just 1,500 pounds.

Additional 2021 VW ID.4 Cargo Specs 

Not only will the 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 have towing capacity specifications that should put it at, or near the head of its class, but it will also be among the most spacious models available. When there are people using the backseat of the 2021 VW ID.4, people will still be able to use 30.3 cubic-feet of cargo volume. Owners of the 2021 ID.4 can fold the rear seats down to make up to 64.2 cubic-feet of cargo volume to use.
