Today, Volkswagen unveiled the ID.5, a new electric SUV, expanding its “ID. family” of electric vehicles. However, the new vehicle is basically a coupe version of the ID.4.

If you are familiar with the design of the ID.4 you could easily get confused, since the ID.5 looks almost identical.

While it features a new nameplate, the ID.5 is basically the ID.4 with a coupe-style back. The overall dimensions are roughly the same.

In terms of powertrain, you’ll find what we have now been used to with VW’s MEB platform-powered electric vehicles.

The entry-level VW ID.5 Pro is going to be equipped with a single rear-wheel-drive motor with a 174 hp output and a 77 kWh battery pack – enabling over 320 miles of range.

Like with the ID.4, a dual-motor option is also going to be available.
