Volkswagen reveals ID5 (gallery)

7 2022 VW ID5

Volkswagen has revealed the ID5 SUV Coupe, which will arrive in UK dealerships in the first half of 2022.

It will be the latest addition to VW's expanding ID electric vehicle (EV) line-up. Prices are expected to start from £47,000.

The new model is based largely on the existing ID4 SUV and will be the second EV from VW to also be offered in a sporty GTX derivative.

Three powertrains will be offered, all using a 77kWh battery. The regular ID5 uses a rear-wheel-drive setup, with a choice of 174PS or 204PS motors.

Sportier GTX versions feature two motors, giving all-wheel-drive and a power output of 299PS.

The ID5 has a maximum range of 323 miles, dropping to 304 miles on the GTX.

VW has introduced new software on the ID.5, which not only adds more infotainment functions and improves the car’s Travel Assist system, but also increases the maximum charging capability to 135kW. It means the ID5 can charge to 80% capacity in 26 minutes. 

EVs are expected to make up 70% of VW’s global sales by 2030. Following the introduction of the ID4 GTX earlier this year, the new ID5 represents the next step in VWs electrification strategy.
