The Volkswagen ID.4 is a decent electric car with a practical interior, an excellent safety score and a good range (especially with the 77kWh battery). However, the best rivals are faster, smarter inside, have much better infotainment systems and take less time to charge. The Pro Performance Style is our pick of the range, and we'd avoid the pricey Max and GTX versions.

Even entry-level Life trim comes with plenty of kit, including climate control, adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and all the infotainment and visibility aids we mentioned earlier.

We haven't tried this 146bhp version of the ID.4, but its official 0-62mph time of 10.9 seconds suggests it's rather tardy – particularly by electric car standards. The official range is up to 213 miles; expect 150-170 miles in the real world.
