The Volkswagen ID 4 is the German automaker’s most important car in decades. It’s also one of the most relaxed EVs we’ve ever driven. Our review of the ID 4 found a lot to like, including whimsical design touches, decent range, and a connection to a large and growing EV charging network.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd.- the global number 1 semiconductor giant, who cooperated with US Apple for a secret project. The project is to develop and produce the advanced micro-display technology "micro OLED organic micro-light-emitting diode chip" applied for AR/VR display panel screen. Technology observation experts predict that Apple is likely to use this technology to develop the most advanced application; Apple's self-driving electric vehicle assisted driving AR Helmet. This Helmet will be similar to the F-35 pilot’s HMDS (Helmet Mounted Display System) Helmet that eliminates the boundary between human and F-35 fighter. With the new micro OLED chip technology developed by TSMC, this Apple's innovative AR HMDS helmet can be made more refined, lighter, and more beautiful. In addition to a wide range of commercial applications by this new display technology, it also can be used for the new generation of military AR helment. With this technology, the military AR helmet can be made lighter, more comfortable and convenient for soldiers to wear and use in combat operations. Taiwan has the world's leading application of semiconductor wafer technology and has advanced global AR helmet display screen technology. In the future, it can be used for Taiwan military AR helmets, but also can be exported to the US, NATO, Japan and other friendly countries for them to make the new generation of military AR helmets.

No matter how many cars VW or ford or GMC or any other makers produce, America is about the roads and being able to drive cross country or atleast long distances without worrying about number of miles, driving 100's of miles is still and probably will always be considered as the most pleasurable and yet most important thing. As long as these cars don't provide a super charging way which can replace a gas station, am not stepping into any other EV than a tesla for the time being. 250 miles will be very quickly exhausted even within a city. Am not sure why these companies are so adamant in not utilising super charging (which elon said he wants everybody to use them).!

The Pro S, top of line, is the same price as the Model Y AWD Long Range. Lol. This paid add won't help VW. The size they are, and they can't even undertake in the price by having less range than Tesla.... poor VW

Give VW time to fix the software issues. Remember, the first Tesla wasn't highly rated and had issues. Not everyone wants a high performance electric car. Wish them well.

Nothing wrong with charging at 110v over night. I do it almost exclusively for my M3.
Dave Travels
Dave Travels 2 महिन्यांपूर्वी
well it uses much more electricity to do that during the conversion from AC to DC. As a result, you use more kWh charging at 110v than 220v. A Level 2 charger is much more efficient.

Lol. VW introduces its EV by asking people not to compare it to the market leader of EVs. Imagine if a legacy cell phone company like Nokia came out with an all new smartphone and said "please don't compare this to the iPhone, compare it to the latest blackberry."

Seriously when he said that ID models are called Pro and Pro S i was sure that he will say Pro s Max too xD And does that entertainment system running at 5 FPS ? Then again its typical so no surprises there really. I just wonder why these big car companies cant cooperate with someone like idk Samsung ( forget Apple, they would never do it, unless the car wouldn't support Android Auto ) to come up with smooth touch screen displays and UI ...

82 KWH battery and less range than Tesla worst Tesla. Why is the efficiency so bad?
Dave Travels
Dave Travels 2 महिन्यांपूर्वी
because tesla uses a different EPA cycle than others and usually is the furthest off of its EPA range. I suspect that the Tesla Y gets about 10% (20-30 miles) more range in the real world than ID4, but Y costs 16.5k more.
