Mini ID.4 at the world cup

I'm sure we all had other things on our mind last night but did anyone spot the remote control ID.4 bringing the ball onto the pitch? No idea how much VW must have paid for that! 1500x500.jpg https://twitter.com/TinyFootballCar/status/1414320011221536768 https://twitter.com/Carpervert/status/1414500...

Re: 3 weeks in with ID.4

The tip to get your interior to temp before setting off and whilst still charging sounds like a useful one. Then at the very least wont take much to maintain temp when travelling.

VW ID.4 Prototype Testing Malibu photographed

The black ID.4 SUV was at a charging station, with a carscoops reader taking the photos and learning from the test driver that VW is currently testing the infrastructure to fine tune charging.

VW ID.4 Sneak Peek Video

Chelsea was able to take the car for a short, stealth test and was impressed. VW will be mass producing the ID.4 along with the ID.3 but at present, has no plans to bring ID.3 to North America.
