The Volkswagen ID.5 Adds Style to VW’s EVs

Volkswagen adds a coupe variant of the ID.4 to its roster.

The Volkswagen ID.5 is the crossover-coupe version of Volkswagen’s ID.4 electrical SUV.
The Volkswagen ID.5’s form makes it a lot more aerodynamically pleasant than the boxier ID.4.
Volkswagen will certainly use different powertrain alternatives for the ID.5, but all will certainly feature a long-range battery.
The crossover-coupe pattern is far from dying off. Teased ahead of the Munich car program, Volkswagen has actually finally peeled off the camouflage off its ID.5 EV, the sleeker, coupe-inspired analogue to its electric ID.4 compact crossover.

Base Volkswagen ID.5 designs will sport a solitary, rear-mounted motor. The all-wheel-drive ID.5 GTX will certainly feature an electrical motor at both the front as well as back axles. Powering all versions of ID.5 crossovers is an extended-range battery. Volkswagen hasn’t stated precisely just how big this battery is, however the ID.4’s 77 kWh battery should provide you a concept of the ID.5’s.

Taking into consideration that this is essentially a re-bodied ID.4, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the ID.5 squeezed slightly more variety out of the same hardware. Volkswagen’s boxier ID.4 promotes an unsafe 0.28 co-efficient of drag. The sleeker ID.5 knocks that down to 0.26 in basic trim as well as 0.27 on GTX versions.

Below’s the trouble: It’s not coming to the United States. At least, not yet. Volkswagen will roll the ID.5 out in Europe next year. Price is still to be identified, yet it will likely carry a small premium over the basic ID.4.
