The New VW ID.4, Says Steve, Is Worth Waiting For

The ID.4 is ready for primetime and is the genesis of VW’s all-electric intentions. The ID sub-brand is VW’s name for a family of electric cars that, at least here in the U.S., is expected to spawn 2 new models over the next 3 years.

It’s built upon a dedicated electric vehicle platform that VW calls Modular Electric Drive which essentially gives them one basis for every EV going forward.

It closely possesses the passenger volume of VW’s Tiguan just in a smaller wrapper benefitting from the highly efficient EV packaging.  It feels wide inside with adult-friendly and nicely sculpted rear seats and a foot-activated hatch that opens to more standard cargo room than VW’s new Taos compact SUV.

With an agreeable lift over height, split fold rear seats, an adjustable cargo floor that can be lowered for a little more space or left as is to stow the charging cable, the ID.4 presents itself as a versatile errand companion with which owners will quickly connect.

The car I have is the ID.4 1st Edition and it’s priced at $45,190 including destination…but before you run down to your VW dealer you should know that it’s already sold out.  However, you can still build and reserve the ID.4 Pro online which is priced at $4,000 less.

And if it’s an all-wheel-drive ID.4 you’re after, those are coming later this year with a $3,680 premium attached.  You can lease an ID.4 for $379/month and all trims qualify for the $7,500 Federal tax credit.

The ID.4 is an impressive effort by VW and has proven to be worth the wait.
