Volkswagen Shows Minimalist ID.4 Interior

ID.4 gets simple screens, uncluttered dash

  • VW’s first EV crossover, set to debut soon

  • EV-simple, but still Volkswagen in appearance


It’s the interior of the all-new Volkswagen ID.4, the company’s first EV crossover, and while it doesn’t take many risks, it manages to show off the simple design expected of modern EVs while maintaining the brand image of the latest VW models.

VW’s design boss Klaus Zyciora, who developed the ID.4, calls it “freedom on the outside, free space on the inside,” giving credit to the new MEB architecture and modular drive system for the ability to make better use of the space inside.

Flush-fit door handles give access to a large door opening and a high seating position, while VW says the rear seat offers impressive space as well. 30.3 cubic feet of cargo space is on offer with the rear seat in place, just three less than the three-row Tiguan.

The ID.4 has a floating dash, not visually linked to the center console, which gives the appearance of (and the reality of) some extra knee space and an airier feel. 30-colour ambient lighting and an available fixed glass roof add to the atmosphere inside.

ID. Light is a new Volkswagen feature that puts a light strip below the front glass to give drivers visual alerts. Like notifications that the vehicle locked, braking warnings, or even phone call alerts.

Available in grey or black, the interior also has a steering wheel and control panel trim that can be optioned in piano black or electric white, with the bright colours offering a modern, suitably electric highlight. Orders for the ID.4 are set to open soon, and we expect to see the full vehicle later this month.
