ID.4 First Edition from Volkswagen

ID.4 First Edition from Volkswagen

So here we have the ID.4 from Volkswagen. VW Press kindly lent us this car so we could take it down to VW Action at Santa Pod Raceway.

Now, this is the first time that I’d driven an electric car, and in the run-up to our trip to VW Action, I was quite apprehensive about being able to get to Santa Pod and back, with a little

Everyone joins VWOCGB for their own unique reasons. Discounts, access to first-hand niche VW knowledge, Club merch, and free event tickets are all readily on the table.

I’m a bit of a fan of small cars. I’ve owned a few Polo’s and Lupo’s over the years, so when the opportunity arose to have a go in VWs smallest SUV, I was a little bit excited. 

We currently own a VW Tiguan, so we’re quite familiar with VWs SUV range, but the T-Cross
