This is a full walkthrough of the VW ID.4’s interior in my usual style. The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s electric station wagon and while it’s a great drive, there are things about the inside that bug me. Here’s the rundown.

The first full production electric car, the LEAF has evolved with time, but remained true to its purpose. This is an affordable, basic, A-to-B car that happens to be electric. And it’s awesome for being so.
The Mercedes EQ lineup is where the company plans to place all of its electric vehicles going forward. Most of them have an existing equivalent in the standard gasoline line. For the EQE, that’s the E Series. Sized similar to that model, the EQE uses the same underpinnings as the larger EQS and the SUV-styled EQB. And it’s really, really good. Smooth, comfortable, and very useful as a daily driver. Well done, Mercedes-Benz!
Kristin was live at the new Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric car’s unveiling and took video for our Instagram channel. That video blew up, with tons of comments and a million+ views. After having had some time to let our first impression of the car sink in, we give our impressions.

The question of why manufacturers don’t just take current models of vehicles and “convert” them to electric at the assembly line is a good one. There are reasons that doesn’t happen. It’s complicated, but it makes sense once you think about the vehicle design process itself.
