And Where to Find the VW Electric Car for Sale in South Jordan

If you’ve even been moderately paying attention to what’s going on in the EV space, then chances are you’ve already heard about all the waves the Volkswagen ID.4 has been making in the automotive industry.

This new electric car is the first foray into EV vehicle space from Volkswagen, and to say they knocked it out of the park is a huge understatement. Right out of the gate, the ID.4 was declared the 2021 winner of the World Car of the Year Award, besting every other electric and non-electric vehicle out there.

The ID.4 was also voted one of 2021 Wards 10 Best User Experiences, an accomplishment earned through the future-forward design and serene experience this SUV provides drivers.

However, even with all these accolades and praise from reviewers, making the switch to an electric car still is a bit of a culture shock to some drivers. The VW ID.4 Pro gets up to 280 miles on a single charge, but the range isn’t what’s holding up drivers from making the switch. It’s the charging times.

Although gas prices are at an all-time high, some drivers can’t quite wrap their heads around hooking up to a charging station and waiting for their battery to replenish. It definitely takes some getting used to, but it’s easy once you discover ways to fill the time. It’s also worth noting that charging your VW electric car really doesn’t take that long. With a DC fast charger, you’ll get about 70 miles of range in ten minutes.

To help you adapt to life with the Volkswagen electric car, here are the top five ways to kill the clock while you charge your vehicle.

#1 – Take a Midday Power Nap

You can still have your vehicle on while charging, so fire up your most relaxing playlist, get the interior temps just the way you like them, and catch some much-needed Zs in the comfy confines of your ID.4. You and your vehicle can enjoy a nice recharge session before resuming your day.

#2 – Catch a Show Through Your Favorite Streamer

Okay, so maybe you’re not exactly sleepy. In that case, you can watch an episode of your favorite TV show on one of the many streamers out there (we’re assuming you have at least one). If you’re one of the few not in a part-time relationship with Netflix, Disney+, or whatever – just fall down a 30-minute YouTube rabbit hole while your ID.4 reclaims some of its battery health.

Sidenote: This Volkswagen electric car has your smartphone charging options covered (both wired and wireless), so don’t worry about burning through your battery.

#3 – Hit the Gym for a Quick Workout

It’s spring, which means people are already thinking about their summer bodies. And good news – most major gym chains feature EV car chargers in their parking lots. Feel free to hook up while you squeeze in a work-out. The ID.4 Pro S comes with V-Tex leatherette seats, so they’re easy to clean if you break a sweat in there.

#4 – Knock Out an Appointment

The doctor, the dentist, the salon…so many appointments, so little time. The good news is that you can use your next doctor’s check-up or haircut appointment as an excuse to charge your VW electric car. Many offices and shopping centers feature EV spaces, so be on the look-out.

#5 – Tackle Your Weekly Grocery Trip

You probably hit the grocery store at least once a week to stock up on food and supplies. Take it as an opportunity to give your Volkswagen ID.4 some much needed juice while you shop. By the time you’re checked out and your groceries loaded, you should have most of your battery health back. Target, Walmart, and most grocery store chains have invested in DC fast chargers for their EV-driving customers.
