American-made VW ID.4 price, Lucid’s long ramp, California EV incentives: Today’s Car News

Lucid lowers expectations for 2022. California EV incentives need some attention. And VW prices the American-made ID.4. This and more, here at Green Car Reports. 

The lowest-priced U.S.-built version of the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 will start at $38,790, VW revealed this morning. That’s for a 62-kwh battery pack and an estimated 208 miles of range for the ID.4 Standard, which comes far better equipped than a typical base model. 

Lucid Motors pointed to supply-chain issues in cutting its anticipated delivery target for this year by half—to just 6,000 to 7,000 of its Air electric luxury sedans in 2022

. It’s hoping to move more, like logistics, in-house, and in the meantime it reported a continued expansion of its sales and service network, while its timeline for a plant expansion and the Gravity SUV remain on pace. 

And according to a report out earlier this week, the current high-demand situation for many EVs, combined with the lack of state funds, has made many of California’s EV incentives out of reach for the low-income households for which they’re intended.
