For anyone going to the dealership tour there are a few little details I would like to find out about the ID4. They are the following:
1.) Does it have the small cubbie to the left of the steering wheel?
2.) Are there any SD slots in the glove box?
3.) Are there any spots in the glove box for credit cards? I use this for my RFID card(s) for EVgo and Chargepoint accounts

Any pictures or info on any of the 3 questions would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

OK, @DanM this one is for you

Chicago dates and locations:
· Thursday 11/19 – Bill Jacobs Volkswagen
· Friday 11/20 – The Autobarn Volkswagen of Countryside
Could anybody in Chicago ask how the winter range is and poke a little bit about the missing heat pump?

Wonder if there are any hints of the ID.4 tour detouring up I-5N to Seattle area after San Francisco?

Cool. What's making you lean towards the ID.4 out of curiosity?
And welcome to the forum BTW!
Thanks!

I'm getting this vehicle largely for my parents who have always wanted a long-range EV SUV. The contenders are VW ID.4, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model Y, and Nissan Ariya.

We're leaning towards the ID.4 because it's well-rounded in areas that actually matter to them -- ease of ingress/egress, visibility, rear seat space, comfort, etc.

The Mach-E is a little harder to get into and less spacious than I imagined, due to its low and curvy roofline. While the performance and tech seem better than the ID.4's, it's not worth the extra price to them, as my folks don't care about sub-6 second acceleration or the wow factor of a large tablet on the dashboard.

The Model Y is the best on paper (acceleration, range, efficiency, etc.), but my parents had trouble adapting to the Model 3, which they later returned, and the Model Y shares the same attributes: firm ride, darty steering, road noise, limited rear visibility, no blind spot warning on the mirrors, and poor customer support. It's also $14K more expensive than an ID.4 1st Edition after the federal tax credit.

The Ariya looks promising, but not sure if it'll arrive in time.

M - I was planning to ask about that myself. I'll happily report what they have to say. Although, my confidence is low based on my visit to my "preferred dealer" today. The "EV Specialist" there reported that training for the new vehicle has been limited due to the pandemic. He said he has done the online stuff but it was tough to relate when compared to hands-on training. Not to break bad on the poor guy but I will say the good people of this forum have taught me more about the ID.4 than that guy knows. He didn't even know the dealer tour was going on.

Ever the optimist, I am hopeful the "EV Specialists" at one of the select VW dealer tour stops will be well prepared.

Scott - I'd be happy to spend a little time looking into your queries. Perhaps you'll return the favor by spending a little time adding your info to the tracking list found here....The VW ID.4 Reservation Tracking List 😉

I stopped by Suburban VW in Troy Michigan today and checked out the first edition ID4 prototype. Although this was first and foremost a PR tour , the dealership and the VW corporate people treated me very well and let my friend Alex Harrison take some pictures. They gave me an inside and outside sneak preview of the ID4. It was very impressive both inside and out. I wasn't allowed to test drive the vehicle but there was some talk about them being available for test drives in January 2021. Here are a few pictures of the ID4.

Does anyone know if it is confirmed that it won’t have the birds-eye view camera. I asked vw on Twitter and they told me that it would have it

@tallt456,

Do you mean a 360 deg camera? If yes, based on the info I have seen there answer is no.

It will have a back up camera and parking sensors (prox sensors). I have that same set-up on my eGolf. Works well. My only compliant is when I have my hitch bike rack it looses it’s mind on the back up sensors.

Can you give the source? I’ve seen a lot of people say that it’s not going to have it, but I haven’t seen it official anywhere

In the order guides for the Arteon, Tiguan, and Atlas (in the US), this feature is called "Overhead View Camera (Area View)." That feature is absent from the ID.4 Order Guide, so it's a pretty good bet it won't be included. VW order guides don't list all the features a model doesn't have, but it's pretty rare for them to omit a feature it does.

The European ID.4 has the 360 degree camera so it would be weird to omit it from the US version because they would have to manufacture many parts without the camera

In Europe, only the ID.4 1st Max has Area View. The cheaper ID.4 1st model doesn't, so they're already dealing with two configurations.
