Check Out the New, All-Electric Volkswagen ID.4
Getting to Know This Game-Changing New Vehicle
With gas prices well above the $3/gallon benchmark here in Utah, it has a lot of folks asking themselves how they can best save money on their monthly vehicle expenses. Now that things are getting back to normal, the majority of us have returned to our regular daily commute and have once again become frequent visitors of gas and service stations all across town. This means more money is being budgeted towards fuel and traditional vehicle expenses such as oil changes. No matter which way you slice it, owning a car costs more than it did a year ago.
If you’re considering upgrading to something a little more eco-friendly to save on the cost of fuel, then allow us to wow you with the all-new all-electric 2021 Volkswagen ID.4. For those that have been searching for terms like “VW SUV for sale” or “new cars for sale” then you’ve already very likely come across the ID.4 already. People are comparing it to the ever-popular Volkswagen Tiguan and other models of VW SUV, however, it’s our first subcompact SUV in its class to run completely on electric. The ID.4 is already generating a ton of positive buzz in the industry. In fact, it’s already been declared the winner of the 2021 World Car of the Year award for its performance, modern design and features, and the way it finally allows drivers to ditch the pump.
Getting to Know the All-Electric 2021 VW ID.4
In recent years, more and more people are getting on board with the idea of all electric vehicles. However, there are still a couple of noticeable reservations when it comes to actually purchasing one. The first is the price tag, which is generally much higher compared to that of a gas-powered vehicle. One big misconception that people have is that electric vehicles cost as much as a Tesla, which is fortunately not the case. The VW ID.4 Pro model retails for around $42,000, which makes it one of the most affordable new vehicles that runs on electric in its class. That’s quite a bit lower than a brand-new Tesla.
The other reservation that people have is that all electric vehicles lack the range of a gas-powered vehicle. Obviously, you don’t want to feel like you’re married to a charging station, especially when you’re on a cross country trip where charging stations are few and far between. The beauty of the VW ID.4 is that it was built with range in mind and has already been tested and verified to be able to travel 260 miles on a single charge. For most people, that is more than enough mileage to get them through their weekly commute without hitting a single charging station. The VW ID.4 has also completed a 6,700-mile road trip through a separate independent test. If you’re worried about the VW ID.4 being a battery hog – don’t. The range you get out of it is one of the primary reasons why this is being called a best-in-class all-electric subcompact SUV.
When you do need to charge the vehicle, rest assured, it will be a quick process. With Level 2 Home Charging, you will get 23 – 34 miles off a one-hour charge with the ID.4 Pro model. When charging with Level 3 DC Fast Charging, you’ll get 62 miles on the ID.4 Pro after just ten minutes. The majority of people charge their cars while they’re grocery shopping or running errands for convenience. By the time you’re done with your trip to the store, you should have a nearly full battery. Making sure that both the driving range and charging times were convenient for drivers was a top priority for VW when designing the ID.4.
How the VW ID.4 Stacks Up to Other SUVs
The main question that we get about the VW ID.4 is about how it compares to other SUVs in its class. Most people tend to think of vehicles such as the 2021 Subaru Forester, the Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4, and yes, even the 2021 VW Tiguan. Granted, all of the aforementioned vehicles are technically SUVs, however, the ID.4 is the only SUV out of the bunch that is all-electric. That factor alone puts the ID.4 in a separate class because you no longer have to think about fuel-economy.
Regarding the key performance metrics of these SUVs, the Volkswagen ID.4 doesn’t skimp when it comes to how it handles on the open road. The VW ID.4 offers drivers a whopping 201 hp under the hood compared to the 2021 Subaru Forester at a modest 182 hp. The ID.4 isn’t lacking in torque either, clocking in at 228 lb-ft compared to the Honda CRV which offers 179 lb-ft. If there was any doubt in your mind that an all-electric can’t keep up with its gas-guzzling contemporaries – worry not. That ID.4 packs more than enough punch under the hood to perform with the very best SUVs in its class.
The Volkswagen ID.4 isn’t lacking in features, either. It includes wireless smartphone integration for compatible devices through App-Connect and wireless cell phone charging. It also offers Emergency Assist, Travel Assist, and Remote Access Services at no additional charge. The VW ID.4 has some of the largest screen real estate at 10 inches; the RAV4 and Honda CR-V only have 7-inch screens.
No SUV worth its salt would be complete without a great warranty. The VW ID.4 offers a 4-year/50,000-mile (whichever comes first) warranty compared to the previously mentioned Subaru, Honda, and Toyota SUVs that only offer a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty (whichever comes first).
