The Volkswagen ID.4 hasn’t received the most positive reaction from reviewers, but unlike the Vinfast VF8, it’s not because it’s a bad car. It’s because it’s a very middle-of-the-road EV that struggles to stand out in any meaningful way. How does it look? Fine. What’s its range? Fine. How’s it drive? Fine. For 2024, though, the ID.4 gets more power and some new tech that should at least make the EV a little more interesting.
Yes, a new motor now gives the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 282 horsepower, up from 201 hp in the 2023 version. Upgrading to the all-wheel-drive version takes that figure to 330 hp, up from 295 hp. But unfortunately for anyone who is interested in the ID.4 Standard (all none of you), these new motors are only offered on ID.4s with the 82-kWh battery pack. But hey, the big-battery ID.4 is the one most people buy anyway, so we suspect most buyers won’t even notice.
