An in-depth look at the ID.4 with VW VP
Showcases interior innovations
It’s not on the market for sale quite yet, but the Volkswagen ID.4 electric crossover is expected to arrive soon. So one of the automaker’s senior VPs is giving us a walkthrough look at some of the features the new EV will offer when it does.
The first thing you might notice about the ID.4 is that with Senior Vice President, Product Marketing & Strategy for Volkswagen of America, Hein Schafer standing beside it, the ID.4 looks absolutely tiny. It’s not, though, standing just two-inches shorter than a Tiguan (and nearly the same in width), and is significantly larger in all dimensions than the Hyundai Kona EV. Turns out Hein may just be extremely tall.
When it comes to driver assistance features, the ID.4 will come loaded. IQ. Drive Level 2 including forward collision warning with braking, blind spot monitoring, radar cruise and lane keeping system, as well as front and rear parking sensors and auto high-beams.
Flush door handles get soft-touch opening and are illuminated for night use, and the LED projector lights that span the nose are optional. During the walkthrough, Schafer shows off the nearly Tiguan-matching 1,817L of cargo space, but you can also see the high load floor opening to get your stuff in there. A movable floor lets you trade cargo height for the ability to lay items flat through to the front seats.
When Schafer gets in, he shows off just how much interior space there is, thanks to his head not touching the headliner of the VW. Of course, you’re supposed to be looking at the controls and steering wheel and how the gauge cluster follows the steering wheel adjustment, and not the headroom. So if you want our best look at the ID.4 yet, give the video a watch.
