Proof the VW ID.4 can actually drift - driven by Tanner Foust

      It makes a change from driving to Asda and back

      With the VW ID.3 doing so well in terms of sales and reviews, it was only a matter of time before its bigger brother, the ID.4 came out and it can actually drift.

      Drifting isn't what this car is for, instead it is a familly crossover EV designed for mundane tasks such as the school run and weekly shops, but who doesn't want a family car that you can drift at the weekends?

      In order to test out its skills, VW handed it to American racing driver, Tanner Foust to slide it around a track for a bit.

      The ID.4 has one electric motor at the rear (making it RWD) which produces 201 HP and 228 lb-ft (309 Nm) of torque. Mated to this is a 82 kWh battery pack which gives it a quoted range of 250 miles (402 km) of range.

      But if you are after an AWD version with more horsepower, then you will have to wait until next year.

      • That was just sliding at some corners.

      • Most important EV qualities:

        Range, comfort, practicality, reliability and recharging infrastructure. Not important: speed and drifting.

      • Not hard to slide it in corners when all the power and torque goes to the rear.
