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!

The European Commission has notified VW, BMW, and Daimler of its preliminary view that they engaged in illegal anti-competitive practices between 2006–2014, keeping diesel engines dirty. The automakers now have the right to defend themselves, but if found guilty, they face fines of up to 10% of global annual revenue ($26 billion for VW alone).
 Pollution costs the every country hundreds of billions of dollars a year, including countless premature deaths and horrible illnesses and suffering.
 Fossil fuels aren’t even cost-competitive any longer in much of the market.
 Fossil fuels continue to get ginormous subsidies from governments — the epitome of harmful, stifling, costly government subsidies.
 We are heating up the Earth’s climate so quickly that we may not be able to stop the runaway heating and society-collapsing consequences in a few short years (12 years by some counts).
 There are ways to quicken our inevitable transition to clean technology (solar energy, wind energy, and electric vehicles). But politicians are blocking those solutions.
There has been fraud in the auto industry — for many years. There has been purposeful fraud to push illegal amounts of pollution on people without them knowing it. Yes, auto execs have been jailed for it, because this was real fraud.
How about we support a company that is advocating our acceleration to sustainable energy? This is exactly what Tesla is doing, and very successfully. So far, Tesla has prevented over 3 million tons of carbon from being put into the air thanks to its vehicles not putting out any toxic exhaust.
How the Tesla Model 3 became the World's Safest Car!

Tesla’s Mission
The goal of Tesla is to accelerate world’s transition to sustainable energy.
Overview of Tesla
We design, develop, manufacture, lease and sell high-performance fully electric vehicles, energy storage systems, and solar energy systems.

Tesla Model 3 outshines Audi e-Tron, Jaguar I-Pace to become UK’s most popular EV.
What is particularly impressive is that the Tesla Model 3 was able to overtake its rivals in terms of popularity in just one week. According to UK-based online leasing service, the Model 3 generated more personal lease inquiries within seven days in May than its premium rivals achieved during the entire month.

Tesla is as much about software as it is about hardware, a bet that an iPhone on wheels is a lot more valuable than a tin can (ICE [internal combustion engine] vehicles).

The Tesla is definitely the more stately design with the widest market. Its the only one in this group where you can feel equally comfortable driving to the flea market as you do to the symphony. The VW, on the other hand, just looks pure Gen. X. It reminds me of a Disney ride attraction with all the plastic cladding. It looks build purely for utilitarian purposes rather than luxury.
As for the white steering wheel, that's just plain for display purposes only. Some things just aren't made to be light colors and a steering wheel is one of them. Not sure I like the "aftermarket" tacked on display either. Also, cup holders should always have covers. That way you get dual use out of the space instead of just a gaping hole when there's not drinks in them. Especially the armrest in the rear, where the cup holders space makes it useless as an arm rest. A gaping omission where a simple flip down cushion would fix that.

Exterior is ok, interior as horible as it can be. Ideal for people with white socks and brown sandals. Skoda looks far better, Tesla looks like a car of the future compared to these two.

The 4000+ home 'new town' at Alconbury Weald does not have a single charging point in any of its new homes, instead, the people who moved away from London to buy cheap homes here at only £400-500K have to use one of the FOUR little charging points located at the children's play park. Great, eh?

I test drove the Tesla and yes, it’s fast. But there is a problem, Tesla’s are ugly cars, and as ugly as they are on the outside, they’re worse on the inside. I’m sorry if this offends Tesla people, that was not my intent.

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

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.

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!).

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 ! 😁🤟

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.

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.

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.

Djprojectus - 2 måneder siden
@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.
