For anyone that's planning on getting the ID.3 in Europe and the ID.4 in North America, is it going to be your primary vehicle or is it going to be a secondary vehicle?

For me I'm planning for the ID.4 to be my daily driver. I don't have a long commute to work from where I live so I'm not worrying about range anxiety. But I know some people that plan to use it as the secondary vehicle while they keep a regular car for daily use/longer trips.

My ID.4 will be my primary vehicle (replacing a CC). I have a zero commute, so it will be primarily trips to the gym and grocery. It will change our overall family driving patterns though. It will assume some of the workload of my wife's CX-9 in our group outings.

It will be my primary car as well, replacing a Toyota Prius. My commute is only 15 minutes, but I’ve been working from home since March.

Which BEV and PHEV will the ID.4 be replacing?
2018 Honda Clarity PHEV, 2019 Hyundai Ioniq electric (limited with the heat pump). Hyundai had ridiculous discounts and lease deals at the end of 2019 (probably because of the range increase of the 2020s) and I could not resist trying one. I really like it. The cabin is comfortable, but not luxury, and the ride, especially highway, is no where near the Honda, but it is just a fun little car to drive. Half tempted to keep it, but I only have a one car garage, and clearing upstate, NY snow around a car in the driveway is a pain.

The ID.4 will be one of five vehicles. The ID.4 and '14 TDI SW will be our daily drivers.

Yes, it will be our primary vehicle. I hope to be able to use it for longer trips too, assuming the availability of charge stations along the way.

Will be our everyday vehicle, replacing a BMW 530e PHEV. But, will be keeping a second 530e as long trip car. The 21 mi EV range of the 530e PHEV serves for 90% of my driving, but I have to charge it after each use to make that. The iD4 will be 100% of local use and only need weekly charging. But, We'll still have the second 530e for long trips and as a "super-hybrid" gets 35 MPG in that use--plus it's a LWB semi-luxury car (8" longer WB than the iD4). Looking forward to the increased seating height of the iD4 and greater load height for those around-town trips. AND don't forget the London Taxi-grade turning circle. When I see the FWD vehicles trying to negotiate a U-turn, I'm always grateful for the tight turning radii of German cars.
