The Volkswagen ID.5 is expected to cover over 300 miles on a single charge. The automaker will also offer a high-performance all-wheel-drive version – the Volkswagen ID.5 GTX.
Tomorrow, on November 3, 2021, Volkswagen will officially unveil the ID.5 SUV-coupe. The new model will be the third electric vehicle of the brand from the new ID lineup.
The ID.5 is essentially a sportier and more stylish version of the ID.4. It is built on the same MEB platform for electric vehicles developed by the VW Group.
The initial version of the ID.5 will likely get a 77-kWh battery and a 201-hp electric motor mounted on the rear axle, just like the ID.4. Due to the improved aerodynamic shape, the ID.5’s range is expected to exceed 310 miles of the ID.4.
The high-end Volkswagen ID.5 GTX is equipped with two 300-hp electric motors. All-wheel drive helps accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6.2 seconds.
The main competitors of the Volkswagen ID.5 could be the Kia EV6, Toyota bZ4X, Mazda MX-30.
We can add that the more utilitarian Volkswagen ID.4 is sold well in Europe and even in the United States, where electric vehicles are less popular.
Since the beginning of the year, the volume of sales of the crossover in European markets has amounted to almost 37,000 units. In America, 6,000 people have already become the ID.4 owners.
All this suggests that the more stylish Volkswagen ID.5 has good market prospects.
