Volkswagen continues to democratize technology with its MY23 lineup

July 18th, 2022 by

Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced its changes for the 2023 model year today. Each model in the current lineup has been introduced, redesigned or refreshed in the previous two model years, resulting in the freshest Volkswagen lineup in years.

Layering on more value for 2023, Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is now standard across the lineup, and all model lines will offer faster 45W USB-C charging (later availability). Every 2023 model also offers standard or available IQ.DRIVE® driver assistance technology, making it one of the most accessible hands-on semi-automated driving systems on the market today.

For 2023, Volkswagen is localizing production of the ID.4 EV with all models to be assembled in our state-of-the-art plant in Chattanooga, TN. A new 62 kWh entry version will be introduced, lowering the price of entry to the ID.4 model line.

Select MY23 vehicles are expected to begin arriving in dealer showrooms late summer.
