Volkswagen All-Electric SUV, the ID.4, and Compact SUV, the Taos
Volkswagen is happy to announce that recently, the all-new ID.4 and Taos won 2022 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice award. The ID.4 was named Best Electric Vehicle (EV), while the Taos received the title of Best Small Utility Vehicle.
“These are great individual wins for our ID.4 and Taos, as well as Volkswagen for SUV strategy,” said Hein Schafer, Senior Vice President, Product Marketing & Strategy, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “These vehicles are great examples of how we have grown and diversified our lineup to meet the market with quality, value-packed offerings.”
The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 made its debut back in 2020 and continues to earn all kinds of accolades. Those include a Top Safety Pick +, Wards 10 Best UX List, Car and Driver Editors’ Choice, and 2021 World Car of the Year. The SUV is also VW’s first-all electric SUV and their first global EV. It is built the automaker’s MEB electric vehicle architecture – the modular electric drive matrix – it combines the strengths of a purpose-built EV with performance, packaging and value – features that have marked the brand for decades.
“The Volkswagen ID.4 checks all the boxes that make a small utility successful and then some,” said John Davis, host and creator of MotorWeek. “It’s attractive, comfortable, loaded with technology, has generous space for people and cargo, and is available in two or four-wheel drive. Add to that a highly accessible price, it is the first ‘everyman’s’ SUV.”
There are several reasons why you should get into the 2022 Volkswagen Taos. In addition to being named Best Small Utility by MotorWeek, the Taos has everything you want and more in a small SUV. The 2022 Taos made its debut at Kelly Volkswagen last summer and has proven to be a great fit for those looking for a smaller SUV. Sitting just below the Tiguan, the Taos offers Volkswagen’s signature driving dynamics, high quality, and smart packaging in a smaller package with a lower price tag. Toas also boasts a tech-forward package, including standard Volkswagen Digital Cockpit and Car-Net telematics, offering in-car Wi-Fi capability when you subscribe to a data plan.
John Davis on the Taos: “Everyone knows that Volkswagen has a legacy of building great small cars. Now the same can be said of a new chapter, their smallest utility, the Taos. The Taos delivers a mix of spaciousness, standard features, functionality, and driving prowess that is more than enough to shake up this very crowded segment.”
