  • Nice car, but not yet on the road. In the meantime, VW continues production and keep them on a storage lot. Why? Because their software is still under development. And by the way, this car will not be available in the US anyway.

  • How does Honda manage to offer cameras instead of exterior mirrors? That's nothing to let the price explode and VW's are overpriced anyway. There's a huge profit margin involved. For this interior? No, thanks. You can actually SEE how bad the quality of those plastics is. 5:30 "SO much room without a center console" - ~VW puts cup holders there~

  • Review would be much better, if we had a driver's eye view of interior. That stub for controlling Drive, Park etc looks weird.

  • its a reasonable EV from VW, style doesnt matter much anymore but it looks okay ! at least better than other entry class EV such as Leaf. EV is like home appliance now, the romanance and enthusiasm has gone unfortunately.. sad for traditional car guys?!

  • Vw just reduce the costs by switching AC controls to the touch screen and also the odd Gear selecter you can ditch and make it like tesla. Switch on to drive. Also this way you can make the screen bigger and make it like a ecosystem with games and netflix. So you are ready for the future.

  • When the battery fails, it will cost you a minimum of $4,000. So just keep that in mind and the fact that the digging up of the lithium to make these batteries are coming from I think it's either Chile or Peru. It is ruining the ecosystem there. No one seems to be too worried about that right now, because it's hip to run electric. Hopefully, it will all turn out okay for the human race

    • $4000 every 250,000 miles, sounds good. Recycling challenge in 10-20 years, should be solvable. I'll take clean air now, thanks.
