ID.4 epic roadtrip!

Master Technician takes the amazing ID.4 over 800 miles!

30 June 2021

On a recent epic journey, Richard Thadwald (Master Technician - Volkswagen Newton Abbot) drove the ID.4 on an 800-mile round trip to Carlisle. He said - 'I wanted to gain experience of the car and to experience what our customers would experience driving an ID on a long-distance trip. The car performed amazingly, it was comfortable, spacious and managed a 250 mile range of ‘normal’ driving (A/C on and cruising at a normal speed).
Knowing I would have to charge along the way I had downloaded the app ‘Zapmap’ and was a little anxious about how many chargers would be available along the way. Every service station had something available, and the vehicle was fully charged in around 1hr20mins on a 50kw charger (ecotricity). I had no idea there were as many public chargers available, which made the journey stress free. An extremely impressive car all round!'

We feel that it's vitally important for our colleagues to understand what our customers will experience with their new Electric Vehicles. Our goal is to build confidence with EV's and how they can work for everyone.
