The ID.4 is an eagerly-awaited all-electric vehicle from Volkswagen. This all-electric crossover SUV is designed for and will be produced in the United States. Its release will mark the debut of the very first all-electric crossover SUV in Volkswagen’s vehicle lineup. Here are 5 advantages of ID.4 by Volkswagen.

Volkswagen first debuted their ID.4 model in September of 2020, and this all-electric crossover SUV finally hit the mainstream auto market and began trickling into official Volkswagen dealerships throughout the United States near the end of the first quarter of 2021. 

Volkswagen aims to normalize electric cars through the release of their ID.4, which is expected to be affordable compared to other all-electric cars that are available on the current auto market. Currently, all-electric vehicles cost an average of almost $20,000 more than a similar gasoline-powered vehicle. This price discrepancy makes electric vehicles much less accessible for drivers who do not have access to a huge amount of expendable income. 

Volkswagen hopes that their more affordable ID.4 will help allow drivers who are on a budget—as opposed to just wealthy drivers—to indulge in all-electric vehicles without draining their bank accounts. 

In addition to being comparatively more affordable among more luxurious all-electric vehicles, the Volkswagen ID.4 has many other features that make it a strong contender on the all-electric vehicle market—which is becoming ever more competitive as more and more major automakers release their own all-electric vehicle models of virtually every type.
