The ID.4 does pretty well. That road is similar to many of the trailheads we often go to, or possibly a little rougher. I used to take my Leaf on those and found that it handled pretty well as long as you were careful. 'B' mode is great for rough roads and trails, since it starts to decelerate as soon as you lift off the accelerator pedal, before you even touch the brakes. The only additional suggestion I have heard is to use Sport mode for trails, since in that mode the traction control is less aggressive. I've heard (from Kyle's videos, I believe) that the AWD version will be able to turn traction control completely off, but in the Norra off-road race Tanner Faust reported that he found it worked better with traction control turned on. In any case, the AWD ID.4 should be great for these sorts of trails!
I appreciate that ID.4 has more ground clearance than most of its competition. They made a number of trade offs (tire width, traditional rear hatch shape, and ground clearance) which undoubtedly hurt efficiency but were probably good calls. AWD ID.4 should be very sure footed in snow and not as prone to getting bogged down by snowplowing with front fascia
