First Look: VW ID.4 exterior design is 'as if shaped by the wind itself'

That's one way of putting it

Ever since the Volkswagen ID.3 came out, German car fans across the globe have been patiently waiting the arrival of its big brother, the ID.4 which will be a more cross-overy (yes, that's a word...in my world) type car.

So far, we know very little information about the ID.4 but what we do know is what it could look like. Now, we all know what the ID.3 looks like. It's a cute little EV hatchback which is full of vegan materials. Well, the ID.4 will likely be the same but more expensive and 'as if shaped by the wind itself'.

Those aren't my words, but the words of VW themselves. This is exactly how VW has described the exterior of the ID.4:

“The ID.4 represents an electric design evolution. Its exterior design is clean, flowing and powerful. It appears strong and self-confident in a new way. This is mainly due to the seamless, aerodynamic style of our ID. family, which we have transferred to the SUV segment for the first time with the ID.4.

"This means that gentle, soft transitions alternate with sharp, clear separating edges. The design looks as if shaped by the wind itself. At the same time, the modern look of the ID.4 can be seen by the characteristic headlights and the signature light between them.”

I suppose we have to take their word for this, as it's likely the real thing won't look exactly like the computerised designs we can see here but if it looks anything like the ID.3 then it'll be beautiful in its own right.

What do you think of it?

  • Having been given crossovers by car hire companies, I can honestly say I'd never purchase one, either be a 4x4 or be a car, they're shit to drive.

  • 'Shaped by the wind itself?' Hogwash. If it was it wouldn't have those stupid nostrils at the front. There's nothing to cool that needs holes like that and even disconnected with plastic bezels instead of grills, they still contribute significant aerodynamic drag. Marketing bullshit. The car is a reasonable fist at creating a high quality alternative to large geegaw encrusted nonsense punted out by many legacy manufacturers. The Golf, which this car seems aimed to replace irrespective of whatever VW claims, has been a long favourite for the more well heeled hatchback buyer. It provides a level of tactile pleasure and efficiency that appeals to the more demanding customer. Whether it can keep up with developments coming thick and fast, remains to be seen, but VW appears to be taking the transition to full EV production very seriously indeed.

  • Does the wind itself gave the shape,

    Would anyone believe the BS GIVEN THE HORSESHIT VW AFTER ALL THE SCANDAL,

    IF IT THE SHAPE WOULD BE GIVEN BY WIND THEN IT WOULDN'T BE A BLOB BUT RATHER AN AERODYNAMIC SHAPE NEVERTHELESS,

    BUT FROM EVERY ANGLE IT ISN'T AND IT LOOKS MORE FAKE CLOSED AIR VENTS FAKE EXHAUST LIKE MANY VW VEHICLE ON THE PLANET,

    BUT AN EXCEPTION IT WOULD BE AN ELECTRIC,

    NEXT THE ONLY VW SHAPED BY HAMMER AND CHISEL,

    MAN IT'S SOO CLICKBAITEY TITLES FROM VW TO MAKE IT POPULAR LIKE SOME JOKE YOUTUBER,
