Volkswagen's 'Tesla Model Y' - the new 320-mile range ID.4! FULL DETAILS!
On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
Introducing Volkswagen’s first entry into the electric SUV market - the ID.4!
VW clearly has the Tesla Model Y in its sights with this new family-friend EV SUV. One thing’s for sure, there’s no denying it looks good, thanks to the curvy exterior design, full-length rear brake light and headlights clearly ‘borrowed’ from the ID.3.
However, one thing we’re not so sure about is the specs! On the one hand, it’s great to see a 77kWh battery included (the same as you’ll find in the range-topping ID.3), and the 320-mile range is well above what you’ll find in your average electric car. But the one electric motor only produces 204hp and 310Nm, which leaves a lot to be desired. Not only that, but it’ll only hit 60mph in 8.5 seconds - slower than a diesel Tiguan!
So can the ID.4 compete with the Model Y? You’ll need to stick with Mat and find out!

    So, could the ID.4 topple the Tesla Model Y? LIKE if you think so, or COMMENT if you'd choose the Model Y!

      It has nothing to do with topple... can they eat into tesla's numbers so they cant grow as fast. The market is huge.. its about market share.

    320 miles WLTP? The ID could not even achieve the 300 miles range. I saw that the software was wonky and hope that it will be resolved. I’m just glad that VW is trying to atone for their sins of the past. More competition is better but certainly not a model Y competitor.

    Before the new BMW design one could have argued that the kidney shaped grill was part of their design and had been forever.. but now... what were you doing BMW. What is with the minimalist interiors.. The tesla interior sucks.. Give me S class level comfort. Germany should do german interiors and AUDI's are hard to beat in that department. Ive also said it before... if VW group decides to go after tesla.. they will catch them. They spend 14 billion dollars a year on R&D after all. Thats alot of engineer salaries. They could also pretty easily head hunt telsa engineers they want.. or would you be willing to say no to a 3x payraise to move companies... i wouldnt

    Looks like the NIO ES8 & ES6? In fact, is it made at the JAIC factory or using same moulds & tooling?

    Having sat in the Y I found it much smaller than I expected. It's fine I guess, but it feels like a slightly taller 3. It is more akin to a Subaru Crosstrek than a true SUV.

    so ....people love VW in europe and here in the Us...everyone runs away from them. I had an 06 passat brother has a 15 GTI...both of us and everyone else I know who has a VW says they are incredibly unreliable...because they are. Regardless of year, model or powertrain.

    The exterior of the ID.4 looks great, not so convinced by the interior, like the ID.3, I think it looks a bit cheap and toy like, compared to a BMW i3, also I really don't like the current fashion for gloss black, which is not practical for a car interior. The drive train is not as advanced as the Tesla, but that's the same for any non-Tesla, their battery and drive tech is 5 to 10 years ahead of pretty much everyone else. Overall though, well done VW for embracing the future and not just hoping it will go away if you ignore it (Yes Ford, I'm talking to you!).

    I've not seen any good reviews of the on board controls, voice or otherwise. Even German reviewers said it's unintuitive and generally rubbish. It's put me right off.

    Add more range with the Evs and more charging stations and people will gradually drift away from gas & diesel engines.

    Expect a year for Matt to review the Enyaq as he did with the Skoda Scala as I don't think he quite likes Skoda's from his reveiws on them , exception to the Kodiaq Vrs he reviewed tho he still advised us all in small words to buy diffrent and waste your money on something else to keep your naughbours content as it seems badge snobbery for VW owners still excists 😉😉🙈 I bet Matt has a fleet of Skoda's he owns at his home that he parks each one outside his mum's house just so he doesn't get stick from his naughbours or friends Lol 🤣🙈 Oh Matt ' you are so funny lad ! 😁🤟

  • BorisWree

    It doesn’t have a 320 mile range. Why is everybody lying on these video previews? It has 250 for the RWD and most likely will have even less for the AWD. It was supposed to have 300+ but VW dropped the ball on that.

    there are no needs for long range electric vehicle, when there are diesel engines, electric vehicles should be for city ''home-work-home''.. everyone got diesel long range SUV, and small city car for work-who one do not even heat up till you get to work or back to home.. electric 100km range small vehicles are perfect city cars, low cost and affordable to everyone to clean city from smog.. what was before beetle or golf today, and future is ID3

    Good looking car compared to the Tesla Model 3 or any Tesla for the matter. In my opinion Elon Musk is going to make them prettier and charge more for the next generation, which is not going to work because there is going to be competition from the Germans!

    It's roughly the same size and shape as the Tesla Model Y, and the base model will be cheaper than the cheaper Model Y, but with slower charging, slower acceleration and slower top speed, I think when both cars are freely available, I think more people will end up buying a Tesla -- especially after VW runs out of Federal Income Tax Credits in the US. Also, if Tesla pushes down the cost of its batteries, they will be able to lower the price of the Model Y, making the value proposition for the VW harder to convince buyers of. My guess is the people who choose the VW are Germans and people who have a love affair with VW around the world.

    Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu einem gut aussehenden Auto! Ich hätte wirklich gerne eine in Metallic-Grau mit Allradantrieb, großer Batterie und einer Anhängerkupplung. Aber ... Wie können die Ingenieure einen CW-Wert von 0,28 akzeptieren? Tesla Y macht 0,23! Dies beeinflusst die Reichweite und die Höchstgeschwindigkeit. Es kostet absolut nichts, den Stahl aerodynamischer zu biegen. Leistung für ein Auto für sein ganzes Leben - kostenlos !! Ich verstehe es wirklich nicht? Und das ist nicht nur Deutschland.

    Beginning of video opinion: I'd take the iD.4 over Y b/c range is good, price is reasonable, support other automakers trying to break into the EV market. We'll see if anything changes over the course of 8 minutes and 54 seconds After video: not a fan of the gear shift. That's it (when referring to "reasonable price" I meant the more normal spec ones that aren't available yet, just to be clear).

    Because of over population we all now have to consider zero emission vehicle. We can't all emit pollution anymore like the good old days when there wasn't so many people doing the same. I guess it really comes down to stop breeding- so we can all drive Hummers or keep overpopulating so we have to drive zero emission, we are simply at that tipping point, we can't keep breathing in other people's fumes.

    HUGE TITLE FIX needed, it only has a max of 250 miles range. Big difference.

    • Djprojectus

      @Travis Williams Incorrect. Wltp is designed for Europe and is very achievable like many customers and youtubers like Bjorn Nyland have report it. EPA is designed for USA with bigger distances on the highway and thats why a bigger comsumption is is needed. Bjorn Nyland drove the Taycan 4s and achieved 360 miles on a charge when Taycan has an EPA estimate of 201 miles and it was not hypermiling just normal driving in Norway. So WLTP is perfect for Europe but not good for USA. Different conditions,different results.

    • Travis Williams
      Travis Williams

      @Djprojectus Ah, that WLTP standard. We can't even get our EPA standard typically, especially not the WLTP standard - completely worthless unless your flat/downhill, perfect temp, no rain/cold weather, etc. ;-)

    Volkswagen will pay $6.4m in compensation to former workers at a Brazilian factory for collaborating with the country's military during the 1964-1985 dictatorship. VW gave employees' names to Brazilian police hunting for people described as "subversives". They were then detained and tortured. "We regret the violations that occurred in the past." VW executive Hiltrud Werner said in a statement. 1938-Present: Slave Labor! Diesel Fraud! Torture Collaborators! UNREDEEMABLE EVIL? 👹 Please promote socially responsible automobile companies not those that have a history of admitted crimes against humanity. Thank you.
