You’ve been given more information about Electrify America, but now you might want to find out more about VW’s first all-electric SUV! This vehicle is called the ID.4, and is here to make sure that you never have to buy gas ever again.

In the future there is expected to be another option that could create 302 horsepower. Some of the standard safety features with this machine include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, and rear traffic alert.
