    .............................................................
    This is the Volkswagen ID.4... And it just might be one of the most important cars Volkswagen has EVER released!
    But why's it so important, we hear you ask? Well let's face it, when it comes to the SUV market, Volkswagen is easily one of the biggest players there is. T-Rocs, Tiguans, Touaregs... They're everywhere! But with the UK set to ban the sale of petrol & diesel cars from 2030, we need an alternative, and Volkswagen are hoping the ID.4 will be the car to take their place!
    So, do we think the ID.4 can compete with VW's petrol-powered class leaders? Well as it stands, there's just one choice of motor and battery pack to choose from - a single motor & 77 kWh battery pack which will deliver 204hp and a claimed range of 310-miles. However, there are more options on the way, including a 306hp four-wheel-drive version, and a cheaper, less powerful single motor edition.
    So, the performance isn't too bad, but there's one key difference to your regular petrol-powered SUVs - the price! Coming in at around £40,000, the ID.4 easily eclipses what you may have to pay for a standard petrol-powered, mid-range SUV. So is it worth it? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

@Sam J "it weighs 2.1 tons..." and a comment on how this compromises the handling and range? What more do you want? Modern crossovers are porky things anyway and most people really don't care that much about handling. The bigger concern, I would argue, should be the increased momentum and kinetic energy these heavy vehicles bring into collisions.

Hi Matt Can I ask why reviewers don’t mention the weight of EV’s. The handling, and stopping power is compromised. I just sold my new 330e as it is much heavier than the GolfR and spoils the fun. Please give us more honesty? 👍🏼

nowdays the concept cars are production cars...this crap car ist one in a milion that will come in the near future and no one will buy them. we will walk to work. el. cars have no use in any of the world's economy. I dont know that the agenda is behind this crap technology and design but it will stop because it has no leverage in itself. If you buy this crap you will be robbed, you will be molested and you will become a slave of this car. Cars are made to serve you, not that you serve them

VW sold their soul a few years ago, and were dragged into a court of law for doing so as well. Tens of millions of dollars of fine levied resulting in poor installations in their upcoming cars, including this one. VW is as unethical as Ford. And should be avoided so.

The government have now removed the grant unless below 35k and its only 2500 before it was 3k. So people will now shy away from getting electric as most sub 35k are rubbish.

It seems to me that VW don't get it. This is a boring car inside and out and is not like some others adapted for Electric power. It reminds me of the horseless carriage where the horse was replaced by the petrol engine. Hence the first cars looked like a carriage with a space for horses.Tesla get it so indeed do Jaguar with the I pace but this -forget it -most people will!

It really falls true that you do not know how to drive an electric car. 25 kw/h is so wrong. No problem getting this down to 18 for normal driving. I have managed 17 for a long drive in cold weather. So your 70% is very wrong!

Everything is touchscreen and software based, they must be saving a fortune on costs building these things, yet they pass none of this on to the consumer. They even rob the customers of their government grant by adding it to the price of the vehicle. The world will not be carbon neutral anytime soon because who can afford 40k for a car? Not many.

10:26 The strap is for a spare oil bottle. That’s been VW’s clever solution for excessive oil consuption. My Polo GTI is ”within spec” as long as it uses less oil than petrol. They did give me one free liter of oil when the car was delivered, which was nice. They just forgot to remove the strap for the electric cars, as well as the ”Start/Stop Engine” button.

Not something you say every day, but the Skoda Enyaq iV is way better looking both inside and out, clearly uses better materials inside, and probably has the same underpinnings. It's also cheaper, so why would you bother with this VW?

Shorter stature buyers might prefer electric rear tailgate to close. Big batteries equals lots of weight. Only good news is weight is spread evenly across the car floor. No heavy weight of engine as on traditional front wheel drive

Do any SUVs look radical or eye catching? Think Tiguan, kuga, quasqui, kadjar. Only the mazda, Peugeot and volvo stand out. Same interior as ID3 to save money I presume. Strange that software still very buggy considering how long ID3 has been on offer. Infotainment screen looks like cheap tablet bulk buy.

I think you should go straight ahead and avoid Volkswagen ID.4 ! For all those horrible software glitches, for user interface with no buttons, for drum breaks in 21st centry, for inexplicable cheap. scratchy plastic that costs 40 grands ! Goodness, gracious me what were they thinking there in Wolfsburg? If the thechnology is not mature yet - and it is not !!! - do not force it upon us ! Not for 40 grands ! No !
