On the race track, the truth comes out. For the Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV, that was a very good thing.

Drivers Inc.’s Tanner Foust recently put the car to the test at California’s Willow Springs International Raceway, and the results were impressive.

As Tanner explained, “The feeling of the ID.4, with the rear motor, rear wheel drive…it did connect you to the classic Volkswagen. I grew up with the Beetle, and I love that kind of lively feel.”
