    Imagine the pressure on the engineers designing the new Chevy Bolt CUV.

    They have to meet the design and function of this new VW...AND DO SO WITHOUT THE $7500 FEDERAL CREDIT.

    They will need a blockbuster car with a price to match. This VW is gold and should sell like crazy.

    OTOH, EU policies are threatening manufacturers of ICE cars, I am told.

    Re: Way Cool: Build & Price The New VW ID.4

    I've been seeing more VWs in my area in the last couple of years, the updated Tiguan in particular. Everything is AWD (except the occasional Golf/Jetta), it seems to be selling as a kind of Subaru alternative. My guess is this will do quite well around here (Eastern LI, NY). Glad to see it will be built in Tennessee (initial run will come from Germany):

    Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
    Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
    Next ride, pre-pandemic: Maybe a 2021 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
    Next ride, post-pandemic: Keep driving the Sonic!

    That's funny because I rarely see any VW product.

    That's because you don't drive by auto repair shops

    The standout feature for me is they didn't try to make it look like it's from 50 years in the future, it just looks like a car that happens to be electric.

    Don't know if already posted but Skoda, another Volkswagen brand, revealed their cheaper version of the Audi e-tron too.

    Errr, it’s only 250 miles of range.. not too shabby, but nothing groundbreaking. Mach E seems a better choice.

    $39900 starting price with 3 years free DC fast charging NOT a stellar price IMHO

    I thought the same thing. After looking it over at their site and For the size of it and such, I decided in wasn't that enticing (given the interior styling as my main beef).
