VW Introduces ID.5 EV SUV
Nov. 4, 2021—Volkswagen on Wednesday unveiled its ID.5, a new fully electric SUV coupe.
According to a report from Electrek, the EV is "almost identical" to the German automaker's ID.4 but built with a coupe-back style. The ID.5 can produce up to 174 horsepower with a 77 kilowatt-hour battery and has a max range around 320 miles.
“The ID.5 is electric, sporty, and elegant. Our premium SUV coupé with all-electric drive marks another milestone in our ACCELERATE strategy," VW CEO Ralf Brandstätter said. "It offers locally carbon-neutral driving enjoyment for a discerning customer group. We are breaking into a completely new market segment with this model.”
The ID.5 will first come to the European markets sometime in 2022. More details on pricing and global availability are expected to become available in the coming months.
