The ID.4 EV's accessory catalog is now available.
We're still bitter about the fact that the Volkswagen ID.3 isn't coming to America, but at least we have the ID.4 to keep us entertained. Based on our own test drives of the car, the ID.4 is a pretty strong all-rounder, and with loads of features and clever details, it's definitely a car we'd love to own. But we got to wondering, are there any accessories available for the new EV, and if so, what? Well, there are, but if you're expecting anything crazy or unusual, you may be disappointed - the range of accessories is pretty familiar if you know what you can get with traditional cars.
In the current accessory range, you get things like a baby mirror for $87, and three different types of car cover, ranging in price from $109.99 to $259.99. A coat hanger costs 65 bucks while a sun shield for the front windshield is $36. You can also get a universal tablet holder for the backside of the front seats at $110 each. Sticking with the rear of the car, a seat cover here costs $105, but no front seat covers seem to be available as yet. A more interesting accessory you can spec is the frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror with a digital compass and HomeLink functionality. This will set you back $285 and is the most expensive accessory on offer.
Manual rear sunshades are available for both the passenger and cargo area side windows at a cost of $270. Other accessories include a first aid kit for 39 bucks and a roadside assistance kit for $83. This kit includes items like a flashlight, a warning triangle, gloves, an emergency rain poncho, and a tire pressure gauge. A CarGoTech containment system is offered at $45 too, while a MuddyBuddy trunk liner with an extended seatback cover costs $140. In short, the accessories available for the ID.4 are the same as what you'd expect in a traditional car, but we're pretty sure that someday, there will be EV-only accessories. If we knew what those might be though, we'd get to work on inventing them ourselves.
The best accessories are the wheels, with black 20-inch twin-spoke items available at $400 for the front and $440 for the rear, while Classic Tire Totes will cost $56 for a set of 4 and make you feel like a racing driver keeping his tires warm.
