The new Volkswagen ID.4 - car with a fun factor

The ID.4 is a versatile family vehicle, a practical SUV - and a car that guarantees driving fun. Because it's not just the large wheels with a diameter of up to 21 inches that show off the car's sporty, robust character: an electric motor sits directly in front of the ID.4's rear axle, driving the wheels via a 1-speed transmission. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 8.5 seconds in the most powerful version, and the top speed is limited to 160 km/h. The car's weight is evenly distributed between the two axles. Thanks to even weight distribution on both axles, the ID.4 also offers great traction. The rear-wheel drive is an additional fun factor. A sporty top model with all-wheel drive will follow soon. The good performance data also has to do with the highly developed aerodynamics. In addition to the flowing basic shape of the body, many detailed solutions contribute to this top result. For example, the taillights together with the large roof-edge spoiler ensure a clean break in the flow. Added to this is the unusually low center of gravity for an SUV. Depending on the equipment, the ID.4 is around 10 centimeters lower than the Tiguan and impresses with agile handling - not least thanks to rear-wheel drive and its 50:50 weight distribution on the two axles.
