Volkswagen ID.4

"Four" from Volkswagen is the second version of an electric vehicle from the ID sub-brand. The Volkswagen ID.4 crossover is built on a similar MEV (electric modular) platform that formed the basis of the first "three" earlier. In fact, the electric car has now become the most sought-after of the series from Volkswagen, is produced in China, Germany, the United States and is planned to be sold in the largest car markets in the world.

Volkswagen ID.4 has moved away from the standards of crossovers, adopted in the creation of cars with internal combustion engine. It "lost" brutality, but became impetuous, softer and less aggressive, but this does not mean that it ceased to impress with its appearance. As expected, the "four" is designed in the style of the ID.3 model, and the European version mirrors the ID.4 Crozz for the Chinese market. What catches the eye immediately - the absence of a large radiator grille, it is replaced by a thin strip of decoration going from one LED headlamp to another.

Pilot models in the United States instantly "sold out" within a few hours, this is due to the relatively affordable price of the new electric crossover.
