The Volkswagen ID.5 can now be purchased in Germany

The Volkswagen configurator in Germany already offers the prices of the ID.5, a kind of “coupe” version of the crossover ID.4. In other words, it has a little less rear roominess, a kind of third volume, ultra-fast charging at 135 kW and a higher price because it is aimed at a somewhat more sybarite customer. The access version, ID.5 Pro, has a recommended price of 46,515 euros, including transport and 19% VAT.

In the same comparator the ID.4 Pro, also with the 77 kWh net capacity pack, but with 204 HP of power, is offered from 44,915 euros, so the ID.5 gets a round rate of 1,600 euros. If we opted for him ID.5 Pro Performance, with 204 hp of power to the rear axle and the same pack, would be 47,550 euros, 1,035 euros more than the Pro “just”.

Regarding the ID.5 GTX, the most powerful and with double engine (all-wheel drive), its recommended price rises to 53,615 euros. The difference compared to the ID.4 GTX is an additional 3,200 euros. As a guide, we can expect prices in Spain -considering 2% more VAT- of 47,296 euros for the ID.5 Pro, 45,670 euros for the ID.5 Pro Performance, and 48,349 euros for the ID.5 GTX. It might be something else for transportation.

Despite the fact that the ID.5 has a bit sharper aerodynamics than that of the ID.4, for that of the third volume, the approved consumption rises by 0.1 kWh / 100 km at least. The difference stretches to 0.8 kWh / 100 km for the GTX version, since the ID.4 GTX homologates 16.3 kWh / 100 km, and the ID.5 GTX goes to 17.1 kWh / 100 km.

Considering a price per kilowatt hour of 0.274 euros, which is what you see on the German website, the 20,000 km would cost 893.24 euros with the ID.4 GTX and 937.08 euros with the ID.5 GTX, and that with the same alloy wheels and tires. It would be 50 euros more compared to the cost of those same 20,000 km with the ID.5 Pro, with the lower power engine: 887.76 euros. The WLTP range reaches 520 km for the ID.5 Pro, and 480 km for the ID.5 GTX.

The Volkswagen ID.5 is the third available member of the ID family, after the ID.3 and ID.4. The three models leave the factory in Zwickau (Germany), in addition to the Audi Q4 e-tron, Q4 Sportback e-tron, and CUPRA Born. All these cars are 100% electric from the start and are based on the latest generation platform, MEB.
