Volkswagen ID.4 vs Tesla Model Y: EV Road Trip Comparison

From Plug and Play EV.

After two wintertime EV road trips in rental electric cars, we wanted to compare both to our capable-yet-dated Chevrolet Bolt EV. This video pits the less expensive Volkswagen ID.4 against its industry-leading peer, the Tesla Model Y, on 500+ mile trips from Boston to the Tri-state area in (mostly) cold weather.

How does the VW hold up to its top-selling rival over hundreds of miles? This video gives an overview of comfort, costs, fast charging, and highway performance in an attempt to answer that question.
