In the video below from YouTube channel Recharging, you can see first impressions about Volkswagen’s first electric SUV. As noted in the video the ID.4 although much larger than the ID.3 has the same wheelbase (both are based on the MEB platform) while in the back of the car the design impresses where it has very nice details.

The luggage compartment is at 543 litres and is very easily accessible and if the rear seats are folded then the total space almost triples to 1575 litres. The luggage compartments will surely satisfy most families. But what’s it like when someone sits in the back seat of the ID.4? Watch the video below for more details.

Description from YouTube channel Recharging :

I think I was wrong when I said that the Volskwagen ID.3 was the EV most people had been looking forward to after the Tesla Model 3. It might be this Volkswagen ID.4, since this one will also be available in the United States. How much better is it then the ID.3? I had this car for a few hours to test, unfortunately not long enough for a review, but for a good first impression.
