The ID.4 is VW’s first all-electric SUV that was launched in the second half of 2020. We’ll run through the numbers quickly for you: single 201hp e-motor driving the rear wheels, 77kWh battery, a maximum range of up to 520km, max charging rate of 125kW allowing a 30 -minute recharge to yield 320km, and 0-100kph in 8.5sec. Phew. That’s about all of the basics—click here instead if you want to read more.
This is a big win for the ID.4, especially considering how it beat two equally impressive and already award-winning models in the Honda e and the Toyota Yaris. Other finalists include the Audi A3, BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe, BMW 4-Series, Kia K5, Kia Sorento, Mazda MX-30, and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
Meanwhile, the other winners from the 2021 World Car Awards are as follows: the World Luxury Car award went to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the World Performance Car award to the Porsche 911 Turbo, the World Urban Car award to the Honda e, and the World Car Design of the Year award to the Land Rover Defender.
This year’s awards were determined by 94 jurors from different countries across the globe. If you want to check out the full results, click these blue words.
