2023 Volkswagen ID 4 vs. 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5

1. Introduction

The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 is a new electric vehicle that is the first in Hyundai's line of purpose-built electric vehicles. It is a more stylish crossover setup and comes with a bit more selection. It is being offered in either single motor rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive option. The RWD option uses a 215-hp motor setup and the AWD model comes with a 58-hp front motor and a 232-hp rear motor. An all-wheel drive Long Range model boasting 302-hp will be available later in the year. The Ioniq 5 has arguably the highest amount of features and the best range for the price in comparison to other electric vehicles on the market today.

The 2023 VW ID.4 is one of the first all-electric compact SUVs. It offers decent range and three different trim setups. Base models come with rear-wheel drive and a 201-hp motor; all-wheel drive models come with an 82-hp front motor and a 107-hp rear motor. Pro models and 1st Edition models have a higher output rear motor with 201-hp, the difference being the Pro S Model offers 300-hp from the two motors. All ID.4 models use a single-speed transmission. The ID.4 offers an affordable and practical setup with a compelling price point and enticing lease offers.

The electric vehicle world is growing bigger and bigger with every new opportunity. The upcoming 2023 VW ID.4 and 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 are perfect examples of just that. Both vehicles are currently on sale and are advertised as 2023 models. These vehicles provide a compelling alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles, and with electric vehicle popularity growing, one may be curious about what electric vehicles have to offer.

1.1 Overview of the 2023 Volkswagen ID.4

The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 is an electric crossover version of the ID.3. It was revealed on September 23, 2020. Market launch in the United States is expected to be in early 2021. It will have a starting price of $39,995. It will also come with 3 years of unlimited charging at Electrify America charging stations. The ID.4 will be rear-wheel drive with 201 hp and 228 lb-ft of torque. This 1st Edition vehicle will have an 82 kWh battery. This will give the 1st Edition a range of 250 miles. All ID.4s will come with 3 years of free maintenance. The interior of the ID.4 is similar to its smaller sibling, the ID.3. The ID.4 comes with the ID.Light feature, which offers drivers an intuitive light concept. It supports the driver in a targeted manner and makes driving even safer. At the same time, it conveys an unprecedented feeling of space. The functional, puristic interior design is essentially dominated by the freely programmable, centrally positioned display. A BeatsAudio sound system is available on the ID.4 1st Edition. The ID.4 has multiple drive modes, which can easily be changed depending on road or weather conditions. The exterior of the ID.4 has a clean and sleek look. The ID.4 has a drag coefficient of 0.28, which is great for an SUV. A tow hitch is available on the ID.4, but it is an accessory because it is not pre-installed. Overall, with a 201 hp rear-wheel drive version expected to follow after the 1st Edition, the ID.4 is an attractive choice for those looking to purchase an electric vehicle. The price and various features offered for the ID.4 are competitive in the SUV market. With the popularity of crossovers and SUVs in the United States, the ID.4 has the potential to be successful. 2021 is an exciting time for the electric vehicle market, and it looks like Volkswagen did not want to miss out on the action.

1.2 Overview of the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5

The Ioniq 5, by Hyundai, is an electric vehicle that was introduced in 2021. It is currently sold with a base price of $39,700 in the United States and has a range of 303 miles of battery life (Carprousa.com). This is a vehicle that many Americans can purchase. It is classified as a midsized crossover sport utility vehicle and its body is longer and lower than most of the vehicles in its label. It is capable of both rear wheel and all-wheel drive with motor outputs ranging from 125KW to 175KW depending on the model. The cheaper models of the Ioniq 5 provide up to 225HP while the more expensive models can provide up to 320HP. All models have 605 NM of torque. The "high performance" edition of the Ioniq 5 is capable of hitting 60MPH in 5.2 seconds. The Ioniq 5 is equipped with a V2L system that allows it to charge other electrical devices with energy from its battery. The Ioniq 5 is perfect for someone looking to purchase an affordable, new state of the art vehicle that is capable of saving the consumer money on gas. With its new look and state of the art technology combined with its relatively low price for an SUV, the Ioniq 5 is forecasted to become one of the greatest selling electric vehicles in America.

2. Exterior Design and Features

Lights, camera, action. A treasure trove of new vehicle features resides with lighting and grille design. In terms of lighting, the ID.4 is equipped with IQ.Light-LED Matrix headlights, which are controllable and quite fancy-schmancy. Unfortunately, this feature is currently unavailable in the US market. The LED taillights are also of note, featuring a light bar that connects the two taillights for a chic appearance. The Ioniq 5 equally offers a compelling feature with its front Digital Chameleon pixel LED lights, enhancing driver visibility by accentuating road elements and not blinding other drivers. This feature is unique to the Ioniq 5 and not offered in any other vehicle. A notable feature in the ID.4 that the Ioniq 5 lacks is the presence of a rear wiper, which is quite an unexpected rarity in modern vehicles. This may not say much, but it can really grind the gears of someone concerned with having a clean rear window. As for the Ioniq 5, a short push of a button causes the charging port door and cable to illuminate, making for easy charging at night. The ID.4 integrates this feature with the side view mirrors, but it is only available for the 1st Edition models. Both vehicles have much more to offer, as the visual capabilities of modern vehicle lighting have evolved to offer driving experiences with heightened safety and style. For the ID.4 and Ioniq 5 vehicles in particular, further features such as ambient lighting are certainly worth exploration. Such features are indeed a sign of progress towards that bright future of EV vehicles. Step by step, right?

For buyers in the fast-growing electric vehicle market, choosing their ideal car matches the excitement of a kid in a candy store - but the final judgment, sweet or sour, is made in the eye of the beholder. In essence, design is a vital feature of any vehicle, but especially so in the EV segment, considering that some environmentally-conscious consumers are likely to make the change from fuel-powered vehicles to electric vehicles. The 2023 Volkswagen ID.4 and 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 are two key players in this market, both cloaked in a unique style that appeals to their respective brands. The ID.4 displays more modern VW car design, resembling a more futuristic version of the VW Tiguan. It's the same story for the Ioniq 5, adopting a futuristic design that will be carried down through future Hyundai vehicles. In terms of body style, the ID.4 invokes a tad more aggression with a sportier frame, noticeable by its long hood and brushed aluminum roof rails. Alternatively, the Ioniq 5 has a more relaxed body style, featuring a more spacious interior and reclined seats equipped with footrests. Ultimately, design and body style is an interpretation of personal taste, so one could not judge a vehicle based on that aspect alone.

2.1 Design aesthetics and body style

Despite an AWD ID4 possessing only a slight performance increase over its FWD variants, the absence of an AWD option is a blow to potential ID4 customers living in constantly wet or snowy climates. This is also reflected in the ground clearance of both vehicles, with the Ioniq 5 adopting a more rugged look than the ID4 and offering an inch more ground clearance.

The Volkswagen uses its MEB2 platform to create a wheelbase of 2773mm, providing ample interior space. Unlike its Hyundai counterpart, the ID4 is offered with optional all-wheel drive, meaning it uses a rear-wheel-drive layout, just as you'd find in the gasoline model compact or midsize SUV. It is likely that the choice for RWD will confuse potential customers who understand the benefits of FWD in terms of driving dynamics and overall safety, with the exception of the AWD variants. Conversely, FWD and RWD Ioniq 5s will use Hyundai's E-GMP platform to provide drivers with a dynamic experience thanks to a design offering almost 50:50 front and rear weight distribution, making it feel sporty and stable. The absence of a center tunnel allows for a flat floor in the Hyundai, adding yet more to interior space and driver comfort. With a variety of components combined into an 'integrated' drive axle, the E-GMP platform provides a maximum range in excess of 370 miles from its largest battery option.

Firstly, the Ioniq 5's retro-futuristic design aesthetic is bold and wins big points in the eyes of many, while keeping one foot in the past. The other is placed very much in the future. The chic VW ID4 is quite a contrast, with a smooth, aerodynamic contemporary design lacking any specific traits or features that define it as an electric vehicle. While a subjective topic, the ID4 may appeal to the mass market due to not standing out as an electric vehicle, whereas the Ioniq 5's polarizing design will certainly turn heads. While its broader wheelbase will maximize interior space and provide improved driving stability.

2.2 Lighting and grille design

Volkswagen has decided to deliver a more conventional SUV-style body for the ID.4 as opposed to the smooth-curved Ioniq 5. Volkswagen's recent commitment towards a more futuristic design is reflected with the LED light bar grille that connects both headlights and surrounds the VW logo. This use of a light bar to convey additional information about the car is also evident with the use of a 3-light LED bar for the rear taillight, which will serve as a status indicator for the car's battery. The ID.4 uses LED headlights as a standard with the option for IQ Light LED Matrix headlights. The Ioniq 5 has a front clamshell hood and a V-shaped bumper to go with a very aero-centric look. Buyers can choose from a 20" wheel that comes standard with 255 wide tires or upgrade to a 22" wheel with 235 wide tires. The ID.4 will come equipped with either an 18" or 19" wheel depending on trim. This is significant because tire size has a direct impact on the efficiency range for the vehicle and wide tires are generally not recommended. As such, wide tire options on the 20" wheel from Hyundai do not bode well for efficiency as there are sacrifices to be made for increased performance. Hyundai describes that the 20" wheel represents a 'more sophisticated, aero-optimized wheel design', while the 22" option represents a 'sporty, a multi-spoke wheel integrated with abundant volume, expressing the IONIQ 5's high-performance image'. While the appearance of wider and larger wheels is favorable for many consumers, Volkswagen's decision to offer mainly smaller wheel options prioritizes efficiency. With 255 tires serving as an option for a 20" wheel, the width is equivalent to that of the ID.4's 19" wheel, which also uses 255 tires. In terms of comparisons, the efficiency aspect could be seen as a battle of function between the design form, where wider and larger wheels tend to convey a more stylish and rugged look. The decision to go with wide tires from both companies holds the potential to show reduced range in comparison to base models equipped with smaller width tires. Wider tires incur greater rolling resistance and aerodynamic efficiency is decreased with an increase in tire frontal area. This goes in contrast to Hyundai's statement regarding the 20" wheel, as a more sophisticated design would indicate an attempt to avoid the standard trade-offs of wider tires. Given the recent trend that wide tires are now considered to be a cosmetic device, it would be interesting to see whether either company intends to promote a new understanding for tire usefulness. A decrease in tire efficiency could be very significant in terms of these EVs and somewhat considered as a betrayal to the benefits offered by an electric platform.

2.3 Wheel options and aerodynamics

The ID.4 boasts a single wheel size, a set of 20 inchers shod with Bridgestone Alenza all seasons in 235/50R20 spec, no "ifs," "ands," or "buts." While one might think that a vehicle as boxy as the ID.4 could accommodate a multitude of wheel and tire sizes, there is something to be said for Volkswagen keeping it simple and sticking with the most efficient option. A single wheel and tire combo leads to less R&D and lower costs, which figure into the car's relatively low pricing. Now let's move over to the Ioniq 5. Its range-topping wheel and tire combo is a large set of 20 inchers enveloped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, a summer tire in the 245/45R20 size. Below this is a set of 19 inchers, which interestingly enough also use the same size tires as the 20s. Having multiple wheel diameters but the same tire diameter is a cost-effective way of offering a larger diameter wheel without adding on the extra cost of developing a new size of tire. All Ioniq 5s that come equipped with the larger brake option run 20-inch wheels, while all others run 19s. This is the same size of wheel that comes equipped on all Tesla Model 3s, and I can say from experience that it is easy to curb rash due to the short sidewall. The single largest detriment to efficiency on most modern vehicles is wheel size. The larger and heavier your wheels are, the more rolling resistance your car has to overcome, which can lead to competitive range ratings being quite a bit lower than on vehicles with smaller wheels, regardless of whether or not the large-wheeled car is more efficient otherwise. This is simply due to the fact that having to move something heavy requires more energy than having to move something light. At the end of the day, both of these cars come with the largest wheel size being 20 inches, and if either had a smaller size available I would recommend it purely for the sake of range.

3. Interior and Technology

To deliver a wide cabin, solid seats, and an elaborate, high-tech interior, sits at the fundamental means of the Ioniq 5's aspiration to position itself as a moving capable space, stress-free for its occupants. Long distances between the two axles and wheels prompt a monovolume layout with a flat floor. Hyundai also features a movable center console that moves back and forth between the front and rear seats. The result is an enough a living room-like feel. The very long, 3000mm wheelbase is 234mm longer than that of the belt drive Ioniq and equates to a vast cabin interior. The ID.4 is offered with both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive. As there's no inline engine, a short front overhang maximizes interior space and as a result, there's plenty of legroom up front. Materials and finish are of the best quality and features are comfort-oriented with items such as the option of 12-way adjustable massage seats. The ID.4 and the Ioniq 5 share many advanced technology features and functions. Digital key is available with both vehicles, allowing the user to unlock the car from a connected device. The ID.4 comes standard with a 10" touchscreen display but an optional upgrade to a 12" display is available. A 12" display comes standard with the Ioniq 5. Both vehicles offer a head-up display, and augmented reality is available with windscreen projection for the ID.4. Ambient lighting, which can be customized to 64 colors, is available with both vehicles, and both vehicles offer sound system options from either Bose or B and O. The Ioniq 5 does have added high-tech functions such as a voice recognition robot which allows the driver to access device functions using voice in a less formal manner.

3.1 Cabin layout and materials

The Gradient Package comes in either Platinum Grey with Black or Galaxy Black with Lavacool Grey, both being paired with black being the dominant colour. The Statement Package comes in Earth with a white material with Mint interior accents to emphasise the electric aspect of the vehicle, this being referred to as the ID.Light colour being an LED strip in the dash that changes colour for notifications, a feature only available in the Statement Package. The materials used include cloth seating, with the seats being power adjusted as standard, with the option to have the adjustable 12-way ergoAction seats, the steering wheel is wrapped in leather and...

With the ID.4 being a "world car" there are few interior material choices, with the US specification vehicles coming in only a Gradient Package or Statement Package that includes three choices of interior design, the first pack only coming in with a two choice package.

The ID.4 has a very unique silent cabin package that stands out from other VW products. The noise level inside the ID.4 stands at fair in all categories to combat road noise across surface changes. From its powertrain, it produces a slight droning sound during acceleration and comes with wind noise from the A-pillar and mirrors, and tyre noise, being a heavy offset to the well-insulated cabin, reducing road noise significantly.


3.2 Infotainment and connectivity features

Both of these vehicles feature digital gauge clusters and large infotainment screens. The Hyundai takes it a bit further in a more futuristic and simple design. The ID.4 opts for a more traditional theme, but features a massive amount of screen real estate. The ID.4 features a 5.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a massive 12-inch infotainment screen. It comes with VW's ID.Light feature which is a light strip just below the windshield that signals drivers to take specific actions, whether it be a navigation shortcut or an incoming phone call. The Hyundai features a similar, 12-inch gauge cluster, but a smaller 12-inch infotainment screen. The screen can be controlled via touch or a touchpad on the center console. Both cars will come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as over the air updates. The ID.4 comes with a free 3-year subscription to VW's Car-Net services, but would require a subscription fee after that time. The Ioniq 5 comes with a newer feature from Hyundai called 'Hyundai Digital Key', that allows the car to be unlocked and started with an NFC enabled Android smartphone. This feature requires a data connection, and may require a subscription at an unknown price. The ID.4 comes with in-car WiFi and wireless device charging right out of the gate. The Ioniq 5 comes with similar features, but they would require a subscription to Hyundai's 'Bluelink' service at an unknown cost. Both manufacturers offer a similar range of features, but the Hyundai would likely result in more subscription costs over time.

3.3 Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)

VW ID.4 is designed around the driver and passengers. Pay attention to the spacious front row and simple sleek design. ID.4 is slated for Level 2 automation, ensuring it has basic ADAS capabilities and will update to Level 3 in the future. It comes with Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking and Travel Assist. Park Distance Control includes both sonar-based proximity notification and automatic brake engagement if the vehicle senses it will hit something while operating at speeds below 3 mph. Travel Assist is ID.4's ADAS party piece. It combines Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist to allow for partially automated driving on designated roads at speeds up to 95 mph. When ID.4 updates to Level 3, it will be able to completely control driving, parking, and other tasks on select roads. ID.4's top ADAS feature is IQ.DRIVE, which is a trademarked Volkswagen ADAS suite. Full capabilities are not fully detailed yet, including what features will be standard and what features will require a subscription. Hyundai has taken a different approach with Ioniq 5. Ioniq 5 is the first Hyundai and one of the first vehicles in general on a modern, dedicated EV platform. This allows Hyundai to take advantage of new systems and packaging designed to maximize space and efficiency in aid of both interior space, passenger comfort, and ADAS capability. Like ID.4, Ioniq 5 is designed for Level 2 automation with an eventual update to Level 3. The best feature is Remote Smart Parking Assist, which allows the car to automatically park itself after the driver gets out. Other ADAS features are typical of a modern vehicle and include Highway Driving Assist, Parking Collision-Avoidance Assist, and a number of traditional safety features which will be listed later in the chapter.

3.4 Interior space and comfort

The ID.4 and Ioniq 5 are valuable choices for potential buyers. Both of these vehicles are compact in exterior size but clever interior packaging makes them feel very spacious relative to the outside dimensions. However, there are several differences in the way each vehicle creates its interior space. Starting with the ID.4, the driver and passenger will notice the airy, open feel of the cabin. The tall roof and relatively high seating position, along with the floating center console that has storage both underneath and on top, create an SUV-like feel. The Ioniq 5 has a very different feel with a more futuristic and high-tech looking interior. It has a low, almost sportback-like seating position and in general feels more car-like, partially due to the fact that it is a hatchback. Moving to rear seat space, the ID.4 is the clear winner. Both vehicles have a very flat floor since there is no drivetrain hump, creating a very unobstructed rear seat area. However, the ID.4 has significantly more headroom and foot room for rear passengers. Though the Ioniq 5 has very good legroom and sufficient space for adults, it is a bit more claustrophobic due to the more sloping roofline. This puts it on par with the more compact CUV segment, rather than midsize SUV, where the ID.4 resides. Both vehicles have rear seats that can slide and recline. Finally, both vehicles have a front trunk, or "frunk", because they are both based on dedicated EV platforms with the absence of an engine. The ID.4's frunk is of average size, whereas the Ioniq 5 boasts a frunk that is very deep and large for its vehicle segment.

4. Performance and Range

Both vehicles offer strong performance with dual motor options. The Ioniq 5 may have an edge in drivetrain performance due to its rear-wheel drive options that offer a sportier driving experience. It will also have a drift mode feature, which is further indication that higher performance off-road and on-road options can be expected in the future. This could mean that the Ioniq 5 will be the choice for those seeking a sporty and fun performance electric vehicle, while the ID.4 will be more aimed towards those who want an electric powertrain for a premium feel with good efficiency and off-road performance.

The Ioniq 5 will have a rear motor and dual motor version, with the former offering around 214 hp and 350 Nm, and the latter having a total of around 321 hp and 605 Nm. It is expected that the ID.4 will eventually offer similar horsepower and torque figures, with its top performance version being introduced at a later date.

Hyundai's E-GMP platform will use electric motors exclusively, pushing power to the front or both axles, with single and dual motor options available on both vehicles. While the exact motor and power output options are not confirmed yet, we expect similarly placed options coming from the two Korean car manufacturers. This includes smaller single motor and larger dual motor performance options, with the ID.4 and Ioniq 5 sharing similar performance specs. They are front-wheel drive versions that will offer good efficiency and later top-of-the-range dual motor options that will be able to compete with performance SUV options. It is expected that the higher power dual motor options will offer a 0-100 km/h time of around 6 seconds, with the heavier ID.4 being slightly slower than the Ioniq 5 as it is expected to have less power.

4.1 Electric drivetrain and powertrain options

The ID.4 uses a single permanent-magnet synchronous motor installed at the rear axle. This engine delivers 150 kW and 310 Nm of torque to the rear wheels only. This power is sufficient for the car's 1850 kg weight, and the rear-wheel-drive would also be beneficial for handling during dry conditions, due to the torque being sent to the wheels that are also responsible for steering. This powertrain has an estimated 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 8.5 seconds, and a top speed of 160 km/h. Volkswagen claims that the rear-wheel-drive layout gives the ID.4 balanced handling like a conventional rear-wheel-drive car. However, the system is not exactly efficient, as electric cars generally perform best with a motor at each axle to provide all-wheel-drive and even better, torque vectoring. This system also lacks the ability to tow, which is a disadvantage compared to the AWD version of the Ioniq 5. The rear-wheel-drive ID.4 will be available later in 2022. A new ID.4 GTX version will receive an additional front motor to enable all-wheel-drive, and it is likely that the rear-drive versions will be phased out over time in pursuit of the more traction orientated system. Step out traction due to the rear motor may be tricky to emulate with a two motor system, but torque vectoring would certainly be improved in the AWD ID.4. A two motor system also increases total power and acceleration, albeit at the expense of reduced range. The Ioniq 5 however, utilises a two-motor all-wheel-drive electric drive option from the baseline model, with smaller single motor options available in the future. The AWD option will provide competitive performance to the dual motor ID.4, but there will be no sacrifice of range in comparison to the single motor cars. This is due to the Ioniq 5 only possessing an AWD option with 72.6 kWh battery, and thus the highest 225 kW power output. Unlike typical combustion engine cars, the behavior or efficiency of the Ioniq 5 AWD will not be compromised in comparison to the single motor cars, and the only trade off would be faster consumption of the same amount of energy. The overall powertrain and drivetrain versatility of the ID.4 provides the capability to eventually suit a wide variety of customer needs, but the efficiency of Ioniq 5 AWD system might be a more appealing long term option.

4.2 Acceleration and top speed capabilities

The Ioniq 5 has a choice of two battery and motor combinations. The lower spec'd 58 kWh battery version can be either RWD or AWD, which will do 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds - identical to the RWD ID.4. The RWD has a top speed of 185 km/h, and the better-equipped AWD has a top speed of 185 km/h. This shows that the ID.4 only edges this current model in AWD spec by 0.2 seconds when accelerating from standstill. The Ioniq 5 does this without any added power premium for the AWD version compared to RWD. It's the same speed and torque. This will make the AWD ID.4 less desirable for those seeking more speed but not wanting to pay more for another powertrain option.

The AWD version is better, with a 0-100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds and an increased top speed of 180 km/h. This will feel quite brisk for an SUV. It's not far off the pace of the current GTI Golf. This AWD powertrain is currently a €4,000 option, and although more efficient and faster from standstill, the substitute of adding speed with price is not competitive compared to RWD only.

Volkswagen provides a choice of RWD or AWD. The RWD ID.4 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds. This may be adequate for most people, but having driven one, we felt that it was off the pace. The top speed limit in the ID.4 is 160 km/h. In today's world, it's always nice to leave yourself a little bit of a speed buffer, especially when it's electric and it won't be long until 160 km/h feels slow. So, we think this is a bit limiting.

4.3 Battery range and charging capabilities

The Ioniq 5 is available in two different battery sizes: a 58kWh and a 72.6kWh battery pack. The smaller option is not available in the US. The standard range model consists of the larger battery and a single electric motor at the rear wheels. This variant is capable of a 300-mile range. There is a Long Range model that utilizes the same size battery but in a dual electric motor all-wheel drive system. This configuration shortens the range by 10 miles. Charging capabilities vary between the battery and electric motor configurations. Models with the larger battery pack are capable of 10-80% charging in 18 minutes using a 350kW charger, with the smaller battery pack able to take 5 minutes longer to reach 80%. This is very quick and is faster than most other EVs on the market. Both variants are capable of adding 62 miles of range in just 5 minutes from a fast charger. As expected, the Long Range models are slower at 10-80% charge with a 350kW charger, but still attain a very fast 15 minutes to add a 10-80% charge. All models are capable of 1 and 3 phase charging up to 11kW. The higher battery capacity model is also capable of 800V charging, which will allow for faster rates using the standard 400V charger and the maximum 350kW charge rate mentioned earlier.

Volkswagen has yet to release specific information about the size of the ID.4's battery pack. However, they have claimed that it will be capable of 310 miles of driving range. Additionally, VW has said the ID.4 will be able to add 33 miles of range per hour from a 240-volt outlet, and a 125kW ChargePoint DC fast charger will be able to add 198 miles of range in just 30 minutes. This is due to the fact that the ID.4 is capable of charging at 3 different voltage levels: the standard level up to 7kW, which allows for home charging; a level up to 11kW for AC charging; and a DC level up to 125kW, which is similarly used in DC fast charging. This allows for greater opportunity to charge on the go using the fastest charge rate of 125kW. So overall, it is very accessible in any charging situation.
