Review

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.

Gets you larger 19in alloys and some extra luxuries, including a panoramic glass roof. We reckon the cheaper trims make more sense, though.

The 201bhp Pro Performance accelerates plenty quickly enough for most (it did 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds in our tests). That's still quite a lot slower than any Kia EV6, though, let alone an entry-level Tesla Model 3. Official range is up to 324 miles, although 230-260 miles in more realistic based on our testing.
