The Volkswagen ID.4 is a completely new fully electric compact crossover. Today I'm reviewing the ID.4, and I'll take you on a thorough tour of it -- then I'm going to drive the ID.4 and show you what it's like behind the wheel of Volkswagen's new EV.

  • The iPad tacked on the dash is terrible. Same look as BMW and Mercedes and SOOOOO different from the rest of the VWAG infotainment stuff.

  • No wonder he struggles with the infotainment. It seems he purposely pokes at the screen in short frantic motions to get it to act up. Later when actually slides his finger across the screen it works perfectly fine.

  • "Clima" is climate in Spanish. This seems to be a European pre-production car. Maybe made for Spain.

  • Obviously VW didn't work with users for the UX.. VW misses the mark on making a user friendly car and more like a "futuristic" novelty car. Electronics will degrade over time..SMH. VW should just focus on making regular cars.

  • I hate these door handles you have to reach from the bottom! They are old fashioned, outdated and not ergonomic. All manufacturers have refused using the in 2000s. Except Dacia, which also got rid of them, but did it only for the most recent generation of Sandero and Logan. And it is surprising because Volkswagen has never used this bad door handle design. I loved that fact and I was always loving Volkswagen for that! They are kind of breaking my heart now!

  • Cudos to VW on their first real EVs. I know the eGolf was around first but it doesn’t count. I know they’ll get better. But the 800 pound gorilla in the room is charging. Tesla, with their Supercharger network, still makes the best of a bad situation. I’m assuming the ID4 is CCS, I don’t remember if you said it or not. We really need serious expansion of EV charging stations and streamlining of use. Right now with non-Tesla’s, you need a half-dozen different system memberships to travel across the country. Hopefully as more EVs are sold this will improve. Congrats VW!

  • Funny how when the Cadillac CTS came out in 2014 (which I own) everyone trashed the same capacitive touch controls like many of these new cars are coming out with. But typical auto journalists did nothing but complain about the CTS controls even though they had to admit that the car itself was an amazing performer. Now VW, Hyundai and so many others have the exact same controls and now they are cool and fun to use.

  • Doug, I've been watching your unbiased opinion for years now and simply love your car reviews. Lately I've watched your reviews of the oncoming electric cars (Mach E and ID.4). One thing that is missing in your reviews of EV's is the charging capability of each vehicle. I think it is an important factor in the decision making of an EV. Keep up the good work 💪.

  • honestly I really like this! ive always said that we just need more like normal EVs.. as cool as the teslas are, most people don't really want or think they can have a super car like that. so when it comes to converting people to EVs I think cars like this are the way to go. also I just don't like the coupe suvs.

  • After VW pull a fast one with so many millions of cars and purposely fixed the emissions results, software and placed those chips in cars to lie to consumers. You have a few million angry consumers that lost money in cars declared lemons and they barely got market value years later even after the courts ruled against financial compensation for the cars people couldn’t sell. I am one that i will stay away from Mazda after the disastrous situation with the cx5 and my total loss with the engine valves. Mazda knew it was a problem, there was overheating, oil leaking into valves and pistons and my engine went out and i never got compensation.

  • That has got to be the ugliest EV I've very seen. Looks like an old Hyundai Sante Fe. Going with capacitive touch buttons is silly. Only two power windows with an A/B switch is silly. No frunk. Come on VW you can do much better. I'd almost rather have a Spark, and that is not saying much. Tesla for the win all day long!

  • The climate control is marked "Clima" I am guessing due to the ClimaTronic system VW has. Our VW Polo had a ClimaTronic system and when I asked my father to turn it up or down I would just say "Turn down the clima"

  • So many miscellaneous controls appear to be very distracting designed to grab driver attention away from the road and clearly designed to fail within 5 years. Anyone driving within a heavy cold snowy climate who usually replaces windscreens more than once during a car's lifetime, will endure dreaded higher costs

  • I worked as a salesman for Volkswagen until 2020 model years. I can tell you that VW is using this car as a base into to the electric market there is today. Infotainment is crap and a downgrade from previous systems which is a surprise. They put little effort into this as they don't plan on it being anything all that special. 2025 will be a big year for vw
