Mr. Bachorski, the first pre-ordered ID.4 will soon be delivered to customers. Have you driven the e-SUV yet? How did it feel?
The driving experience delighted me. It had such a lightness, almost like music. Normally it’s like that: You stand in front of an off-road vehicle, see the huge wheels and already have an idea of how it will drive. But with the ID.4, I was completely surprised. The car drives much easier and more light-footed than I would have guessed. Super performance, very good road holding, small turning circle, simply awesome – especially for such a large car.
As Head of Interior Design, you pay particular attention to the “inner values” of a vehicle. Are you satisfied with your own work?
It’s not just my work, but that of an entire team. About 90 people work on the interior design. With every car, we have to make compromises, of course, because there are legal or technical requirements. But with the ID.4, we found a lot of really creative solutions.
