10 Smart Features of the VW ID.4 Electric SUV
Electric vehicles feature an abundance of cutting-edge technology, which can often be overwhelming to someone new to EVs. However, the new Volkswagen ID.4 SUV is designed with the goal of simplifying your life by creating an easy and enjoyable experience behind the wheel.
Here are ten smart touches in the VW ID.4 to help you enjoy the road ahead.
1. SET THE MOOD
Activate the ambient lighting or pre-set “moods” in your ID.4 by using the slider bar in the infotainment system.
2. NAVIGATE LIKE A PRO
The ID.4 touchscreen display is the main hub for your drive, featuring interactive navigation at your fingertips, plus turn-by-turn directions straight from Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to your ID.4’s Cockpit Screen for seamless and distraction-free driving to your destination.
3. TURN UP THE HEAT
Winter is no match for the ID.4! Heated seats and steering wheel are standard features, as is the energy-efficient heat pump which preserves as much range as possible for cold-weather driving. You can also add a default setting that will automatically turn on the heated seats and steering wheel on startup if the temperature outside has fallen below a certain level.
4. GET SOME AIR
Whether it’s a hot summer day or you’d just like some wind in your hair, you can control all four windows simply by holding down the rear button on the driver’s door panel.
5. SKY’S THE LIMIT
If you want to catch a glimpse of the stars or block out the sun’s rays, simply say “it’s too dark” or “it’s too bright” to open or close the overhead shades of ID.4’s panoramic roof.
6. CUSTOMIZE YOUR CUPHOLDERS
The ID.4 comes with two sets of cupholders for front-seat passengers – one set in the center console, and the other under a rolling cover. These come with customizable inserts for other items such as phones.
7. SET YOUR FAVOURITES
The Discover Pro touchscreen is a convenient way to access the most-used features of your ID.4. Simply swipe down from the top of the screen to find your shortcuts, and hold any icon to bring up the customization menu.*
8. YOU CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW
If your rear camera lens gets dirty, simply press and hold the right wiper stalk toward the windshield. Not only will the ID.4 wash and wipe your back window, but a high-powered jet will also clean the backup camera lens.
9. IS THIS THING ON?
We all need a laugh now and then. If you’d like a little entertainment, simply say “Hello ID, tell me a joke” to bring out its inner comedian. *
10. IS THIS THING OFF?
Since it’s always quiet, the ID.4 can confirm when you exit the vehicle with a friendly goodbye chime. And because of Volkswagen’s attention to detail, you can adjust the chime volume to just the right level.
*Always pay careful attention to the road, and do not drive while distracted.
