VW’s next electric SUV, the ID 5 coupe, will go into production in 2021
Volkswagen confirmed that its next electric vehicle, the ID 5, will start production in Germany in the second half of 2021. The first pilot series of the ID 5 has already started production, the automaker confirmed in a recent tweet.
The ID 5 will be a coupe version of the ID 4 compact SUV, which went on sale in Europe, China, and North America in late 2020. The ID 4 is the first vehicle built on VW’s modular MEB electric architecture to be available in North America. Its predecessor, the hatchback ID 3, is only being sold in Europe.
The ID 5 may also fail to reach this side of the Atlantic Ocean, although a VW spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
