New Volkswagen ID.4

Volkswagen ID.4

From its 2022 production release, the VW ID.4 is the latest all-electric offering from the German carmaker. Like its sister model, the ID.3, the ID.4 is a rear-wheel driven car but it differs insofar as this one is very much aimed at the family-sized SUV market. The car uses the group's MEB platform for electric vehicles, something it shares with the ID.3 hatchback, the Skoda Enyaq and the Audi Q4 e-tron. A first edition, entry-level ID.4 with a 52 kWh battery will cost in th region of £34,600. However, if you want the larger 77 kWh battery, all-wheel-drive version of the ID.4 with GTX trim, then expect to pay over £48,000. A top of the range Max Pro Performance ID.4 will set you back just under £50,000.

As mentioned, the ID.4 comes equipped with either a 52 or a 77 kWh battery. This is the main choice for consumers to make despite the seven different trim levels. Each version of the ID.4 has a single motor providing power. The smaller battery versions provide either 146 or 168 bhp. These are badged as Pure and Pure Performance respectively. If you opt for the larger battery with the bigger range, then you can expect up to 201 bhp from the Pro Performance specification or 295 bhp from the GTX. Under test conditions, you'd be able to drive for up to 213 miles with the 52 kWh battery but the reality is that you are likely going to need to recharge before pushing this theory to the maximum. The Pro Performance provides the largest amount of range for a single charge in the ID.4 portfolio. This one can be driven for up to 322 miles, Volkswagen's engineers claim. If you choose the GTX version of the car, then you'll experience a rapid 6.2 seconds between a stationary start and getting to 62 mph. 



There is a reasonably straightforward style to the interior of the ID.4, something that it shares with the other ID cars VW produces. Clearly, Volkswagen's approach is aimed at a particular type of customer who likes their car interior to be unfussy. The problem is that there is so little to get excited about. You'll have to upgrade if you want a panoramic roof or the larger, 12-inch, infotainment screen, for example. One notable feature – or lack of it – is the absence of knobs. There's not even a handbrake. Everything runs through software. Despite its limitations, what the ID.4 offers inside is perfectly adequate for a family car. 


With some neatly designed 18-inch wheels that are supplied as standard, a roof railing that is discreet yet practical and aerodynamic recessed door handles, the ID.4 looks like an SUV that would be just as home in the urban environment as it would on the open road. LED lights are offered at the front and rear. Despite having the same wheelbase as the ID.3, the ID.4 very much looks like the bigger, more luxurious car when viewed from the outside. The absence of a front grille is the only thing that really says this is an all-electric design.


With a reasonable range, unless you constantly put your foot down, the ID.4 is a genuine choice for family car owners looking for an all-electric alternative to fossil fuels. The boot is big, offering 543 litres of room and this expands hugely when the back seats are dropped.
