VW ID4 is still a budget EV

The ID4 a good looking vehicle and seems to be well put together. However, it's still a bit austere on the inside and some of the trim feels a bit cheap for a $40K-$50K vehicle.

Take a look at the inside door frames for example. Could VW spend a couple of bucks to cover and trim the bare metal door frame for this $40K to $50K car?

Look at a Volt's door trim compared to a VW ID4. Granted it's a minor detail but subtle details do make a difference!

Well, my VW Beetle had metal inside door frames with an inset plastic-wrapped fiberboard panel. Maybe they are simply paying homage to their heritage... :)
I've own a 1973 Super Beetle, 2004 Beetle Cabriolet and 2012 Beetle Turbo and I understand the retro appeal. The Beetle has been around a long time but I don't recall seeing an ID4 as a boy :sneaky:
I've had the exact same thoughts when we test drove the ID.4 Seems like VW is cutting a lot of corners these days. It forces discerning customers to go for the more expensive Audi Q4, so part of their business model I suppose?
I think you're right but $10K more is awfully expensive to pay for door trims and some rings on the grille. 😁
Given the choice of a used 2019 Tesla Model 3 Long Range and a new 2022 VW ID4 Pro 4Motion. Both for $45K but you get a $7500 federal tax credit for the VW. Which one would you buy?
1973 Superbeetle. But there was nothing super about it. :ROFLMAO:
