VW has no room for success in the upcoming 2021 VW id.4 all electric crossover vehicle, borrowing Tesla’s successful charging strategy to encourage potential owners. Volkswagen said today that the id.4 compact SUV will be launched in the United States at the latest this year and will provide unlimited charging service on the electric America network. Volkswagen said the promotion will last three years and will be open to users who buy or rent its id.4. It will give users free access to electric America’s DC fast charging network, which says it currently has more than 2000 charging stations across the United States. < / P > < p > in terms of coverage, there are more than 470 different charging locations, and electric America says 96 -% of the U.S. population lives within 120 miles of one of its chargers. While the specific charging capacity varies depending on the infrastructure, electrify America’s fastest location provides up to 350 kilowatts of support. Of course, it also requires a vehicle capable of handling this power transmission, and id.4 expects a maximum power of 150 kilowatts, at least at the time of its initial launch. < / P > < p > this is a smart strategy, as endurance anxiety remains one of the biggest obstacles that potential EV owners need to overcome. Although statistics show that most electric vehicles are charged at home or in the workplace, it is also an important psychological guarantee to be able to charge on the move. It is also expected to be a compelling benefit, as Tesla found in its super charger network. < / P > < p > in the early days of model s and model x, bundled super charger rights proved to be a popular sales tool to encourage early users to switch from traditional cars. Tesla has since switched to a pay per use system, with the exception of occasional promotions, because sales momentum has proven to be self-sustaining even without the promise of free charging. < / P > < p > for the public, this is a somewhat strange arrangement. The automaker actually owns electrify America itself, which has invested billions of dollars in the DC fast charging network, aiming to build about 800 charging stations and 3500 chargers by December 2021. < / P > < p > however, as an independent business operator, electric America also has agreements with a number of other car manufacturers. Lucid’s air, for example, will also enjoy free charge from electrify America when it comes to market next year. Individual drivers can also sign up for an account and charge their vehicles even without a manufacturer level agreement. Global Tech
