"The first high-riding model for the ID brand is based on the same technology as the ID.3, but we think its SUV styling is more desirable and should appeal to a greater number of buyers.As one of the first mass-market electric SUVs to hit the market, the Volkswagen ID.4 should make sense for a large proportion of buyers. It's easy to live with, practical and offers a decent range with the option of rapid charging on longer trips. Perhaps even more than the ID.3, this could be the model to really get VW's transformation away from fossil fuels moving."
"This all-electric has plenty of appeal for families looking for a practical SUV, with options for great range from that 77kWh battery too. It's great to drive, easy to live with, and offers enough options to choose the car that fits your requirements. We're expecting to see a lot on the road over the coming years."
"Dip into the throttle, and the ID.4 pulls away smoothly with the futuristic whine of a modern electric vehicle. Like most electric vehicles, the ID.4 is very quiet. VW says they have spent quite a bit of effort on that mission and expanded their use of sound deadening countermeasures. And that makes for a serene driving experience. One only needs to open the door to hear the outside world and then quickly close it again to hear just how well VW has done that job."
"With its light steering and excellent turning circle (10.2m – around the same as the Volkswagen Up), maneuvering the ID.3 around town is a breeze. Beyond the urban sprawl, the steering is accurate and sensibly geared, so it’s not a flighty car to thread along B-roads."
"The Volkswagen ID.3 is an accomplished all-electric family hatchback. It gets the basics right with competitive pricing, desirable looks and great levels of comfort - all wrapped up in a practical package with a usable, real-world range.
Aside from peerless green credentials, the ID.3 also has to deliver in the areas that matter most to customers - providing good value for money, while maintaining the levels of quality and reliability the manufacturer has built its reputation on.
So has the ID.3 succeeded? The short answer is, yes, most definitely."
"Its exterior design is a subtle leap from what came before – it has a familiar VW aura about it, but the detailing is sleeker and calmly futuristic. Unlocking the car at night treats onlookers to an intricate sequence of dancing LEDs in the rear lights. A small and flashy touch that nevertheless adds to the ID.3's appeal.
Whether you're someone who just wants to buy an electric car and fancies the idea of one with a Volkswagen badge, or a long-time VW customer who now thinks the time is right to switch to electric power, the ID.3 is desirable, and the firm has judged this car balance of futurism and accessibility beautifully."
