Here's more info on some of the mentioned features.

No Start Button

Similar to the system in Teslas, this car has no start button. Instead, to start it, all you have to do is get inside and put your foot on the brake. From there, you can put the car into gear and go on your way. To turn it off, simply come to a stop and put it in park, and the car will shut off.

ID.Light



The 54-LED strip running across the car’s dashboard is used to easily convey important messages to the occupants. It uses different colors and patterns to signify alerts, navigation prompts, and vehicle charging status, among many other things.

Column-Mounted Gauge Cluster



Rather than fixed in place on the dashboard, The ID.4’s gauge cluster is mounted to the steering wheel. The main advantage of this is that when you adjust the steering wheel, you never have to worry if it’s now in the way of your gauges, as they move together.

Interchangeable Cupholders



While the concept of movable cupholders is nothing new, the way Volkswagen does theirs is a little different. The cupholders in the ID.4 can be stowed away in the center console to get some extra space between the seats, or replaced with the included dividers to keep items in place.

Adjustable Rear Cargo Floor


The ID.4’s trunk floor is on a rail system, so it can be moved up or down depending on whether you want a flat load floor or more space. Additionally, it can be flipped up to reveal another cubby under the floor for some extra storage.

While it has no start button like the Tesla, I do like that it still has a power button unlike the Tesla. I lost count how many times I have walked out of my car with my wife waiting and the Tesla shuts down with no intuitive way to turn it back on as the passenger.

I believe I saw YouTuber "Battery Life" reviewing an ID4 and it showed a rear washer for the back-up cam. Nice.
My 2019 Tiguan has it, it's a useful feature!

Ooh, really? I hope we have that on the US version...I've been pretty bummed that VW didn't continue the super cool hidden backup cam inside the VW badge, like they had on the Golf (Sportwagen/Alltrack), which stays nice and squeaky clean when you drive in snowy/rainy weather. But if it does have a built in washer for the always-exposed backup cam, that would be good enough for me.
