Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Not only is the ID.4 a brand new nameplate for the Volkswagen brand, it's also the first in a series of all-electric model which will combine to create the ID subbrand.The ID.4 is a practical electric alternative to gas-powered SUVs but lacks the excitement you might expect from an EV.

PROS
Roomy cabin,
smooth ride,
decent driving range.

CONS
Lacks driving verve,
fussy infotainment interface,
anonymous styling.

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is all-new all-electric SUV,about as much interior space as VW's Tiguan, an estimated range for rear-wheel-drive models of 250 miles and Kicks off the first generation of the ID.4 for 2021.

Pros
Lots of helpful safety and technology features come standard
Spacious interior with lots of small-item storage
Impressive real-world range and electrical efficiency

Cons
Some controls can be difficult to operate
Low-quality cabin plastics cheapen the experience

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.

PROS
Good passenger and cargo space
Quiet, smooth ride
Lots of features for the money
Free road-trip charging for three years

CONS
Laggy infotainment
Clumsy capacitive controls
Grabby brakes

The MG ZS EV offers a lot for the money in the electric car world, with good interior space, a big boot and plenty of standard equipment. The thing to remember, though, is that more expensive electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia e-Niro, are generally better to drive and, thanks to better resale values, might not cost you that much more in the long run.

Pros
Lot of room for passengers
Big boot
Well equipped

Cos
Poor predicted resale values
Limited steering wheel adjustment
Not that comfortable or good to drive

By: 
whatcar.com

Practical

Cos
Cheap interior feel
Wallowy handling
No companion app

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

PROS
Low list price and good finance options
Usable electric range and performance
Seven-year warranty, five-star safety rating
Practicality unaffected by EV conversion

CONS
Less range than key rivals
It’s not quite as cheap as we had hoped
Low-rent interior
Not exciting to drive
