The ID.5 is solely available with the largest battery pack from the Volkswagen line-up; a 77 kWh battery, which is capable of providing a range of up to 313 miles. With a maximum charging capacity of 135 kW, the ID.5 can charge to 80% in as little as 29 minutes at a rapid charger, or “a rate of six minutes to recharge 62 miles”. Three options are available for the new model on launch: the 174 PS Pro, 204 PS Pro Performance, and 299 PS GTX, which features a bespoke, stand-alone performance trim.
The ID.5 GTX has a 112 mph top speed and can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 6.3 seconds. As mentioned, the lower end of the ID.5 prices start at £50,550, while the ID.5 GTX Max retails for £58,640.
Volkswagen also advertises that both ID vehicles are manufactured net carbon-neutral in Zwickau, Germany, as the factory is powered by renewable energy. Volkswagen has worked closely with suppliers, in particular battery-cell manufacturers, to ensure supply chain use of renewable energy.
The new ID.4 variant stands at a lower price than the previous models with £41,430. It still features the same 77 kWh battery, and is capable of up to 318 miles range. The ID.4 Pro sits between the 52 kWh 170 PS Pure Performance, and the 204 PS 77 kWh Pro Performance. Both ID.4 models have a 0-60 mph acceleration of 10.4 sec and a top speed of 99 mph.
“These new models demonstrate both the flexibility and diversity of the Volkswagen electric SUV range,” said Francesca McGuinn, ID. Family Product Marketing Manager at Volkswagen UK. “On the one hand, you have the luxuriously-appointed, big-battery, ID.5 SUV-coupé, and on the other you have the range and efficiency-focused offering that is the ID.4 Pro.”

The Volkswagen ID.5 has been bestowed with an additional trim level in the UK, available across all three of its powertrain variants. The ID.5 Style serves as the new entry-level derivative for the Pro, Pro Performance and GTX, starting at £49,735 for the ID.5 Style Pro.

These include the energy-efficient heat pump (£1,050); 3-pin mains charging cable (£190); Trailer Hitch (£890); and, over the other ID.5 models, the Infotainment Package Plus (£1,350).
