Meet the The ID.5 GTX
Getting to Know This High-Performance All-Electric SUV
By now, you’ve probably already heard about the brand-new 2021 Volkswagen ID.4, which is our all-electric take on the subcompact SUV. Still in its freshman year, the VW ID.4 is already making waves amongst other SUVs and electric vehicles in its class. Huge waves, really. It took top honors at the 2021 World Car Awards as the World Car of the Year. The VW ID.4 is such a popular vehicle that our initial offering is entirely sold out (don’t worry, more are on the way).
Introducing the VW ID.5 GTX
The VW ID.4 made quite the impact here in the U.S. It’s got all the power and storage of an SUV without any of the gas-guzzling qualities. It’s also packed to the gills with safety and convenience features. So, what’s stopping us from releasing a car like this overseas?
Debuting in Munich we will be showcasing the all-new ID.5 GTX. Think of this SUV as the European counterpart to the VW ID.4. With the ID.5 GTX, we’ve taken all the best parts of the ID.4 SUV and adapted it to the European market. Rather than release a carbon copy of the ID.4, we took the ID.5 GTX as an opportunity to optimize our design and improve the build of the vehicle.
Right off the bat, people will notice that the ID.5 GTX has a swooping hood, giving it more of a crossover-coupe feel compared to the ID.4 being a subcompact SUV. The ID.5 GTX is built upon the very same Modular Electric Drive Matrix architecture that the ID.4 uses, running on a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain. It should be a similar driving experience to the ID.4.
Although the numbers are preliminary and there are certain aspects of performance that may change when more data is collected, Volkswagen is currently estimating that the ID.5 GTX will be able to travel up to 309 miles on a single charge. This exceeds the expectations set by the VW ID.4, which can travel up to 260 miles on a single charge. Additionally, the ID.5 GTX boasts 299 horsepower, which means getting from 0 to 60 should take just a hair over six seconds. By comparison, the VW ID.4 has 201 horsepower. We saw room for improvements, and we made them.
The Volkswagen ID.5 GTX will officially debut at the 2021 IAA Munich Motor Show in early September. As of right now, there is no plan to release the VW ID.5 GTX in the U.S.

Introducing Carefree Coverage
There’s one huge benefit of going with a new VW as opposed to a used one. The Carefree Coverage option protects your investment for an extended period of time. Here’s how it breaks down. When you buy a late model VW you will be given the following suite of coverages
2 yrs. Service – Scheduled Carefree Maintenance (2 years or 20,000 miles)
3 yrs. Help – Roadside Assistance (3 years or 36,000 miles)
4 yrs. Coverage – New Vehicle Limited Warranty (4 years or 50,000 miles)
5 yrs. Access – Car-Net Remote Access
Although VW is known for building some of the most well-constructed cars in the auto industry, it’s nice to know that you’ve got protection. In the event you need VW parts or service, you can get all that taken care of in the VW service department. Your Carefree Coverage will appear in your records, which makes getting your car serviced simple and easy.
