On November 3rd, Volkswagen presents its first E-SUV coupé, the all-electric top model with premium features based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). The new ID.5 and the sporty ID.5 GTX with dual-motor all-wheel drive inspire with expressive design, long-distance capability and the latest software generation.
Volkswagen is transforming into the direction of electrification and digitalisation with the ACCELERATE! strategy. The ID.5 gives Volkswagen further impetus on its way to becoming a software-oriented mobility provider. With the third model to be launched in Europe, the all-electric ID. family moves into the popular, premium- oriented SUV coupé segment.
The world premiere of the ID.5 and ID.5 GTX starts on Wednesday, 03.11.2021 at 14:00 CET.

As the ID.5 will be, in essence, a rebodied version of the ID.4, it’ll share the same MEB platform for VW Group EVs and have access to the same range of electric motors and powertrains as its SUV counterpart.
The launch edition of the ID.5 will likely feature a 77kWh battery pack and a 201bhp electric motor mounted on the rear axle, shared with the ID.4. However, due to its slightly more aerodynamic shape, its range could increase over the ID.4’s 310-mile figure.
At the top of the ID.5 line-up, the performance-focused GTX variant will use the same twin-motor, four-wheel drive powertrain found in the Skoda Enyaq vRS. The technology is also available on the ID.4 and develops 302bhp, which is enough for a 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds.
