  • Has the same profile as the mustang Mach e from the side

  • Dougs the kind of guy that plugs himself in, instead of the car.

  • quirk you didn't mention is the start/stop button says ENGINE but the car doesn't have one...

  • If you ever wonder if you're ready for marriage, think about Doug complaining about the infotainment system... That's exactly how your wife will talk to you when you forget to take out the trash. You think you're ready for that?

  • 4:27 why did it say "start engine" if its electric???

  • WWWWWWWWWolkswagen?!?

  • VW has the best infotainment system on regular cars. I'm sure they will fix this issue

  • I hate these door handles you have to reach from the bottom! They are old fashioned, outdated and not ergonomic. All manufacturers have refused using the in 2000s. Except Dacia, which also got rid of them, but did it only for the most recent generation of Sandero and Logan. And it is surprising because Volkswagen has never used this bad door handle design. I loved that fact and I was always loving Volkswagen for that! They are kind of breaking my heart now!

  • I've driven one, it's hugely disappointing especially for 40k to 50k. Get a Tesla.

  • I get it, it's the SEnewss edition... Hence the play and pause buttons, as well the bunch of "1st" comments all around the car

  • What a coincidence I got a vw ad right before the vid-

  • That light is actually a really cool idea.

  • Why not talk about the charge

  • I want one!

  • Its cool the New Volkswagens have more design now an straight lines like before 👍😎 I remember that time when i looking on tv on kitt and now cars talking in real life its cool 😎

  • Cudos to VW on their first real EVs. I know the eGolf was around first but it doesn’t count. I know they’ll get better. But the 800 pound gorilla in the room is charging. Tesla, with their Supercharger network, still makes the best of a bad situation. I’m assuming the ID4 is CCS, I don’t remember if you said it or not. We really need serious expansion of EV charging stations and streamlining of use. Right now with non-Tesla’s, you need a half-dozen different system memberships to travel across the country. Hopefully as more EVs are sold this will improve. Congrats VW!

  • exhausting

  • So basically it's trash 🤣

  • I’m an ev engineer. Instead of reviewing all the stupid little buttons and gizmos it has why don’t you explain some of the technical advantages it has???

  • I’d rather get the Cybertruck with more usefulness and probably higher resale value.

  • Hey VW ! Be afraid , Hyundai & Kia are arriving with some great EV cars !!! Good luck...... 👎🤕👎🤕😂😂

  • The climate control really is a big fail. Give me dials please.

  • tesla range has over 300 miles always. wtf u talk about demuro , u shill

  • a tesla is a rocketship. a wv is just a shitty car with bad computers.

  • So much prettier than a Tesla.

  • Is this car made in their Mexico factory? That would explain the "clima" button.

  • Funny how when the Cadillac CTS came out in 2014 (which I own) everyone trashed the same capacitive touch controls like many of these new cars are coming out with. But typical auto journalists did nothing but complain about the CTS controls even though they had to admit that the car itself was an amazing performer. Now VW, Hyundai and so many others have the exact same controls and now they are cool and fun to use.

  • Tesla is the "gold standard"? The bar has been set low.

  • Doug, I've been watching your unbiased opinion for years now and simply love your car reviews. Lately I've watched your reviews of the oncoming electric cars (Mach E and ID.4). One thing that is missing in your reviews of EV's is the charging capability of each vehicle. I think it is an important factor in the decision making of an EV. Keep up the good work 💪.

  • Damn...Tesla wins by far...

  • Is is just me or are they only available in blue? I saw 3 of them so far in ATL and they were all in the this same color 🤔

  • Why did they name it after a 25-year-old sci-fi action movie?

  • 6:42 its better if u just swipe ur finger

  • Please say “Folkswagen” instead of “Wolkswagon”, as a German this drives me crazy haha

  • I can imaging that using this system will be a disaster and cause me road raging!

  • This car is terrible

  • Does anyone know if you can use all the "buttons" with cloves on?

  • 2:32 doug looks like hes trying to throw gang signs.

  • I Fu==in hate EV"S

  • Doug:You can see it doesn't look like any other Volkswagen that you're familiar with Audience: Looks like a Volkswagen

  • Not liking it. I like the e golf

  • They will sell 12,000 in their first year. 😬

  • honestly I really like this! ive always said that we just need more like normal EVs.. as cool as the teslas are, most people don't really want or think they can have a super car like that. so when it comes to converting people to EVs I think cars like this are the way to go. also I just don't like the coupe suvs.

  • I’ve never asked a question like this in the comments. I never watch the advertisements. Did anybody else get the preview for the new mighty ducks movie and watch it all the way thru. 😁👍.

  • Am I the only person under 40 years old who doesn't want their car controls to all operate like a smart phone? Buttons, switches and other tactile controls have an advantage- you don't have to look at them while you're driving!

  • After VW pull a fast one with so many millions of cars and purposely fixed the emissions results, software and placed those chips in cars to lie to consumers. You have a few million angry consumers that lost money in cars declared lemons and they barely got market value years later even after the courts ruled against financial compensation for the cars people couldn’t sell. I am one that i will stay away from Mazda after the disastrous situation with the cx5 and my total loss with the engine valves. Mazda knew it was a problem, there was overheating, oil leaking into valves and pistons and my engine went out and i never got compensation.

  • Can´t wait to see cars that have light stripes also on the side and all around.

  • It comes with Jexi.

  • It's funny that when he explained the unresponsive touchscreen, it's unresponsive indeed, but after a cut it becomes responsive Kinda interesting

  • Range is about 250 miles... in Volkswagen miles.

  • Please review the new Mustang Mach-E !

  • That has got to be the ugliest EV I've very seen. Looks like an old Hyundai Sante Fe. Going with capacitive touch buttons is silly. Only two power windows with an A/B switch is silly. No frunk. Come on VW you can do much better. I'd almost rather have a Spark, and that is not saying much. Tesla for the win all day long!

  • Oh man this is ugly as hell....

  • The climate control is marked "Clima" I am guessing due to the ClimaTronic system VW has. Our VW Polo had a ClimaTronic system and when I asked my father to turn it up or down I would just say "Turn down the clima"

  • So many miscellaneous controls appear to be very distracting designed to grab driver attention away from the road and clearly designed to fail within 5 years. Anyone driving within a heavy cold snowy climate who usually replaces windscreens more than once during a car's lifetime, will endure dreaded higher costs

  • How are you supposed to roytate tires when the front and back tires are different sizes?

  • In a years time nobody will remember this car, let alone buy it. Bores me shitless.

  • Silly design

  • Styling should be 0 it looks absolutely horrible 😂🤢🤮🤮

  • The thought that VW could possibly be an EV leader considering their history with electrical/electronic issues is hilarious. Cant trust the brand though.

  • Climate in German is Klima (clima) makes sense. VW hinting at their Germanes.

  • yeah ID4 will remain an awesome movie about giant space ships invading earth thank you very much

  • There's one of these at a little hole in the wall body shop by my house totalled already. Looks like it smashed head on into a wall.

  • a bad joke, it's a german car after all 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Would love to see some reviews on cars like the 90's lightning Truck, Skyranger, and cyclone

  • I worked as a salesman for Volkswagen until 2020 model years. I can tell you that VW is using this car as a base into to the electric market there is today. Infotainment is crap and a downgrade from previous systems which is a surprise. They put little effort into this as they don't plan on it being anything all that special. 2025 will be a big year for vw

  • Booring design

  • I love it when cars have light interiors. Enough of the all black vehicles already.

  • Do a 🦎 review !!!

  • Guess I’m not buying one of these.

  • Hey Doug, You should source a 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV and review it for us peasants!

  • Everything in this car is quirky in a bad way

  • I think the ID4 is ugly as sin, also on the technology front, it’s extremely lacking. I’m not sure what came over you Dug, but I wouldn’t even recommend this vehicle to anyone.

  • Gotta love the play and pause buttons. What a hilarious clever touch. I hope that catches on. No point but it's just funny

  • Doug, please don't do reviews on electric German cars, they remind me of Frau 6uild 6ack 6etter Merkel killing of the German auto industry single handedly, an industry once known for making spectacular cars.

  • is it running v 2.0 or v2.1 the latest updates?

  • well, besides the fact the steering will be dirty af, its hideous to took at.

  • Greta car. Outstanding review. They still won't be able to catch up to tesla. But more EVs? Yes please!

  • I love the white interior it looks clean

  • 9:49 Come on, give us Germans some slack. At least we try to be funny, ja? JA? Like or World War 3 😡

  • The noiseless joke characteristically educate because powder pragmatically visit worth a actually shade. tasteful, spectacular word

  • so electric car that you have to drive yourself. yay

  • I always wonder if the people who make these infotainment systems use them before they hit the market. I would say 3-5 uses of the sliding temp/volume adjustment would make you say “wow this gets annoying when you need to go from min to max”. Classic trying to do too much instead of keeping it simple and quick to use.

  • Tesla vs VW is like Apple vs Samsung or not even that. Nice try VW

  • Strange how fake vents are always highlighted on a Honda Type-R ... but then, this car has fake vents both on the front (mimicking air vents that would cool the front brakes) and in the back (mimicking some air tunnel system from the rear brakes) and it gets away with it. -.-

  • Laggy info.screen is deal breaker to me. That is not acceptable.

  • Awesome review! I want one!

  • 9:04 , isn’t the info up and down moved by the slider bar on the far right maybe?

  • "A bad joke. A german car afterall"

  • Biggest difference to Tesla: VW will let you order parts and work on your car all you want.

  • The model 3 next to him at 22:48. Crazy how times are changing and before you know it, EV cars will be everywhere

  • _Great Report Doug_ _Precise and to the point!_ _NO Embellishing the truth! _id 4 should do well in the market as you suggest!'_

  • I gotta say we're going to see MASSIVE Ewaste in the future. These all touch electric cars are going to break and be too expensive to fix to sell used. Heat tends to destroy these soft touch buttons over time or theyll activate randomly.

  • 1:53 - It looks like a T-Roc.

  • Doug was antifa until he renovated Portland.

  • Sad for Canadian .... that touch button for volume will be a nightmare in our winters lol

  • DUDE YOU NEED TO BREATHE. I GET IT YOU HAVE TO GET INFORMATION OUT. BUT MAN YOU ARE EDITTING THE VIDEO ANYWAYS. JUST BREATHE. I BET YOUR WIFE GETS TIRED OF YOU TALKING.

  • I thought I was looking at a Tesla model X

  • FINALLY!! a Volkswagon that won't leak oil, coolant and transmission fluid at 5 years old.

    • Instead, it'll leak whatever toxic stuff the batteries are made of...

  • THE OEM's HAVE TO MAKE SIMPLE THINGS SO COMPLICATED FOR NO REASON😕😓
