Volkswagen ID.4 EV names 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+
Every year, all new vehicles are tested by the IIHS, or Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to verify these cars and trucks are built to the required safety standards. This year, the IIHS has awarded the Volkswagen ID.4 EV as a 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK+. Here is what that means!
