Volkswagen will launch its ID.5 coupe-SUV on 3 November, as the brand’s third EV to be launched in Europe. The new model is expected to offer more than 300 miles of range, and will be unveiled alongside the high-performance, four-wheel-drive ID.5 GTX.

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.
