As long as there is a place to charge after you drive 200 miles and you drive only along major interstates. This hasn’t been the case in all three road-trips I’ve made so far in the ID.4. None of my destinations had a DC charger so I had to make a charging detour every single time to be able to return from my trip or even be able to drive around at the destination. How is this a perfect road-trip car?ID.4 is the perfect road-trip car
It’s not about the size or the ride quality. The size is subjective, and the ride quality is good. It’s about too small a range for the US (and Canada) and the scarcity of DC chargers in the US (and Canada). I’m sure for Europe, it’s a great road-trip car.
My metro area is larger than many European counties. A daily commute in my metro area could easily be 150 miles for some. When I go for a roadtrip, it’s akin a European crossing the entire EU, which not many Europeans do often. Additionally, their DC charging infrastructure is much more developed than ours. So, yes, for Europe, it’s a great road-trip mid-size SUV. For the US and Canada, it’s a compact CUV that is only good as a commuter car and around-town car similar to most other EVs of this size. Maybe the Model Y is an exception, but even that I’m not sure about, and I own one.
