Volkswagen teases Elektro-ID 5 GTX ahead of Munich debut
Given that crossover coupes are on everyone’s lips, Volkswagen’s new ID 5 GTX should come as no surprise. It’s a swoopier version of thewe know and love, and it will debut next month in the form of a “near-production concept,” Volkswagen confirmed on Friday.
The ID 5 GTX is based on the same Modular Electric Drive Matrix architecture as the ID 4 and uses a twin-engine all-wheel drive train. Volkswagen hasn’t released any specific ID 5 GTX specs, but the recently unveiled oneshas 299 horsepower, which is good for a 6.2 second time from 0 to 60 mph. Volkswagen estimates the ID 5 GTX will have a range of 309 miles with its 77 kWh battery, despite the notoriously optimistic European WLTP test cycle.
A spokesman for Volkswagen of America told Roadshow that the company has no plans to offer the ID 5 in the United States. VW isn’t giving us the ID 4 GTX either, but we will have a new twin-engine ID-4 option, in addition to the single-engine rear-wheel drive variant currently available.
Given the popularity of crossover coupes around the world – not to mention it– the ID 5 seems to be a hit. Make sure that the ID 5 GTX celebrates its debut on September 7th at the IAA Munich 2021.
