Production of the first pre-series copies of ID.5 has begun, while the start of production of models intended for the market is expected in the second half of the year. The new model should be reminiscent of the ID.Crozz concept, and it is certainly a coupe version of the already known Volkswagen electric SUV - ID.4.
The German car giant Volkswagen continues with the offensive on the electric car market, so it has already started the production of the third electric model based on the MEB platform, reports zimo.dnevnik.hr.
Sales of the ID.3 model (which should play the role of an electric Golf on the market) began last year, followed by the compact ID.4 SUV. Several other models are in preparation, such as the family ID.6, whose photos were recently leaked in China, and which you can see here, and ID.2 is mentioned. However, the first comes next - ID.5, an attractive SUV in the form of a coupe.
As ID.5 is not yet official, there is no data on its performance, but according to rumors, this will be a coupe version of the ID.4 model, which should look like the ID Crozz concept.
Although it has not been officially presented yet, the German company confirmed that the production of pre-series models has already started, while the production of the final versions is expected in the second half of the year.
Interestingly, like the ID.3 model, the "five" will not be intended for the United States, but the primary market will be European.
In terms of options and performance, it is speculated that the figures will be similar to those on the ID.4 model. Thus, the 150 kW engine that drives the rear wheels is mentioned (versions with two engines and all-wheel drive will appear later), as well as the 77 kWh battery.
Given that the start of production is expected in the second half of 2021, it is clear that Volkswagen will not wait too long until the official presentation of this model.
Pictures of the concept on which ID.5 is supposedly based indicate that this may be the most attractive electric "Volkswagen" which, if the price is not too high, could really achieve great market success, and perhaps be a bestseller in the e-SUV class. German companies.
