All automakers had huge plans for 2020. This first year of the new decade was to introduce countless new electrified models, among others, but the Universe had different plans for them, and us. Volkswagen’s all-new ID.4 electric SUV won’t be on any auto show floor anytime soon but thanks to modern technology, there’s no need to leave your couch to see it.

Getting familiar with the new ID.4 and latest new ICE SUV from Volkswagen, the Taos, requires nothing more than your smartphone to scan a QR code and you’re off virtually exploring both new vehicles.

The app “enables your driveway or living room to become a showroom,” said David Galbraith, director of experiential marketing and brand partnerships at Volkswagen of America. “You can walk around the vehicle, spin it, and examine it from all angles. You can get a pretty realistic view of what the car will look like in your driveway or garage.”

If you are interested in the all-electric ID.4, the first units should become available in late winter or early spring of next year. As for the compact Taos, it is expected to arrive in showrooms sometime during next summer.
