I was annoyed at the dumbing down of it, namely the lack of one-pedal driving option. So I got a Volvo XC40 Recharge. Looking around indicates that the Auto Q4 e-tron and Nissan Ariya will also not allow it either, after the results of market research. So I end up with something more expensive, lower range, but a few other bonuses as compensation. Call me a purist, but we'll see what comes up in the next few years.
I looked at the XC40 Recharge. Very nice car. Two things killed it for me: 1)Barely working software. 2)Highway range
When I looked at it, even basic stuff like Carplay wasn't working. Apparently that has been improved.
And my own 80mph range test resulted in a winter consumption of <2 mi/kWh. Aside from being sad, that was actually a problem for my use.
With the AWD delay on the ID.4, I've actually set my sights on the Q4 e-tron. I've driven a lot of EVs over the years both personally and through work (MS, MX, i3, Kona). I don't do one-pedal driving (the lack of "hover" kills it for me), and I much prefer the interior/dash of the Q4 over the ID.4 (but each to their own). I won't go near the Korean EVs after all my issues with the Kona (5 recalls and counting, and still issues they haven't recalled... yet).
have a "reservation"
for the Volvo C40. My guess is the slightly slopier roof will improve the 80mph range.
We'll see how the rest of this year goes.
