The ID 4 is VW's electric SUV for the masses

The Volkswagen ID 4 is the German automaker’s most important car in decades. It’s also one of the most relaxed EVs we’ve ever driven. Our review of the ID 4 found a lot to like, including whimsical design touches, decent range, and a connection to a large and growing EV charging network.

    No matter how many cars VW or ford or GMC or any other makers produce, America is about the roads and being able to drive cross country or atleast long distances without worrying about number of miles, driving 100's of miles is still and probably will always be considered as the most pleasurable and yet most important thing. As long as these cars don't provide a super charging way which can replace a gas station, am not stepping into any other EV than a tesla for the time being. 250 miles will be very quickly exhausted even within a city. Am not sure why these companies are so adamant in not utilising super charging (which elon said he wants everybody to use them).!

    The Pro S, top of line, is the same price as the Model Y AWD Long Range. Lol. This paid add won't help VW. The size they are, and they can't even undertake in the price by having less range than Tesla.... poor VW

      well it uses much more electricity to do that during the conversion from AC to DC. As a result, you use more kWh charging at 110v than 220v. A Level 2 charger is much more efficient.

      because tesla uses a different EPA cycle than others and usually is the furthest off of its EPA range. I suspect that the Tesla Y gets about 10% (20-30 miles) more range in the real world than ID4, but Y costs 16.5k more.
