    At this point, there is no denying that Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the future of the auto industry, and every manufacturer is working hard to develop innovative new models for you to enjoy. The 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle is one of the most advanced and impressive vehicles we have seen in some time. This is going to set the standard for other manufacturers as they work on their own EVs, and we look forward to seeing how each brand challenges each other to make better models––though the VW ID.4 electric vehicle will leave them in its wake for many years to come.

    Now in its second year since its initial release, the Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle has received a few updates to make it even more impressive than last year’s model. For starters, VW’s Auto Hold braking feature is now standard on every model, and fast-charging performance has been improved for quicker charges at public charging stations. Perhaps best of all, the range from a full charge has also been increased with improvements for this year, giving you up to 280 miles from a full battery.[b] In many ways, the ID.4 electric vehicle is the spiritual successor to the original Volkswagen Beetle, with rear-wheel drive standard and electric all-wheel drive available for boosted performance.

    The interior of the VW ID.4 electric vehicle is gorgeous and spacious, giving you the practical functionality of a small SUV with some of the most advanced technology we have ever seen. With an available 12-inch infotainment display, you can easily see navigation directions and use your favorite apps, making driving that much more enjoyable. The 2022 ID.4 electric vehicle features Volkswagen’s innovative ID. Light system, which uses glowing visual and audio cues to alert you to incoming calls, brake warnings, and even your vehicle’s battery charge status. Best of all: the IQ.Drive safety package gives you great technology, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Emergency Assist, and a Rear Traffic Alert to help protect you and your loved ones.

    An Automotive Gamechanger

    A lot of people are still uncertain about the change to EVs, and a big part of that is the shift toward new types of power and performance. While we understand such hesitation, we also think the 2022 VW ID.4 electric vehicle is the perfect example of just how remarkable this new technology really is and how far the industry has come from the electric models of a decade ago. For starters, the ID.4 electric vehicle comes with rear-wheel drive standard, featuring a single motor on the rear axle of the vehicle. If you want even greater performance and an exhilarating driving experience, then you can get all-wheel drive that features a pair of motors: one in the rear and one in the front.

    If you go with a standard single-motor model, then you get 201 hp––the two-motor option boosts that up to 295 hp for an incredibly fun time behind the wheel. The moment you press the pedal, you will be rewarded with instant torque that puts you back in your seat: 229 lb-ft of torque with the standard model or 339 lb-ft of torque if you choose a two-motor configuration. This makes the VW ID.4 electric vehicle incredibly fun to drive; if you have never felt what it is like to enjoy the power of a modern EV, then you really need to try it to fully appreciate it.

    Range and Charging

    We know that range and worries about charging are still big issues for many drivers, but the ID.4 electric vehicle puts those concerns to rest thanks to its impressive electric range and easy charging. Range and charging times vary a bit depending on the model and options you choose: the rear-wheel drive model gets superior range as a trade-off for slightly reduced performance. If you choose a rear-wheel drive ID.4 electric vehicle, then you can get up to 280 miles of range from a full charge; an all-wheel drive model can get up to 251 miles from a full charge.[b] Charging the 2022 VW ID.4 electric vehicle is simple since it supports all levels of charging. Level 2 charging at home can get you up to 37 miles of range from a one-hour charge, while DC Fast Charging at a public station can give you up to 70 miles of range from just 10 minutes of charging.

    A Roomy Cabin

    Since most of your time with your vehicle will be spent inside of it while driving, the interior and everything it has to offer is always very important. Fortunately, the 2022 VW ID.4 electric vehicle has a fantastic interior with great technology and plenty of room for you and your passengers to stretch out and be comfortable. This is a two-row model with seating for up to five passengers, so it is a great choice for families and anyone who wants room for their friends. Your passengers will get more than 37 inches of legroom in the rear, while you have just over 64 cu.ft. of total cargo volume inside the ID.4 electric vehicle with the rear seats folded down.

    Features and Technology

    In terms of features and technology, the Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle delivers a fantastic middle-ground between a lot of modern vehicles that can feel cluttered and the bare-bones aesthetic of some other EV models. You get comfortable and luxurious seating with standard heated front seats; 12-way power-adjustable front seats are available for that added touch of comfort. The front dashboard is streamlined and sleek, with a 10-inch infotainment display and Navigation standard on all models, along with a 5.3-inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster for the driver. If you want something more advanced, then there is a 12-inch infotainment display available that makes it even easier to view navigation directions and use your favorite apps.

    One of the most impressive tech features in the ID.4 electric vehicle is the standard ID. Light, which is a light bar that runs across the dashboard. This is not simply an aesthetic detail, however, as the light will actually provide you with information by glowing to let you know that you have a call incoming, that your battery is getting low, and even to warn you about safety features. Other impressive tech features include Volkswagen’s Intuitive Start system, which “wakes up” your car automatically when you sit in the driver’s seat with the key fob, plus wireless charging and more, all standard.

    Advanced Safety Technologies

    No matter what you are looking for in your next vehicle, nothing is more important than the safety features it has to offer. Beyond performance, impressive technology, or anything else, your car or SUV should be able to help keep you safe on the road. While nothing beats careful driving at a reasonable speed, the safety features of the 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 electric vehicle are certainly impressive and will help protect you and your loved ones.

    Every ID.4 electric vehicle comes with Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE suite of advanced safety features and driver assistance technologies standard. This includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which detects vehicles ahead of you and adjusts the ID.4 electric vehicle’s speed to adapt to each situation. Active Side Assist warns you when others are in your blind spot, and a Rear Traffic Alert lets you know if something is passing behind your vehicle while you are in reverse. You also get Front Assist, which monitors the road ahead of you to warn you about potential collisions and can even apply the brakes automatically to help you avoid a collision.

    Making Driving Safer

    IQ.DRIVE also includes Emergency Assist, which will bring your vehicle to a controlled stop if the vehicle detects that you have lost the ability to drive. You also get Lane Assist, which helps keep you from drifting into other lanes while on the road, plus Travel Assist to provide hands-on semi-autonomous driving capabilities to make driving easier and safer. Plus, with VW’s new Auto Hold system, which is now standard in the ID.4 electric vehicle, your vehicle will stay stopped even if you release the brake until you begin to accelerate.
