Volkswagen’s third vehicle in the ID family will be the ID.5 with the first two models, the ID.3 and ID.4 already on sale. The ID.3 is a Golf sized all electric hatchback and the ID.4 is a compact sized all electric SUV. The upcoming ID.5 is going to be a coupe version of the ID.4, but currently it doesn’t look like it’ll go on sale across the pond, in the US.
So far the ID.4 is the only car in the family that is on sale in the United States, with the ID.3 being only available here in the UK and Europe at the moment. Volkswagen has confirmed that there are no current plans to bring the ID.5 to the US.
The news came via Twitter last week, translated it reads:
“It’s official: on the #VWID3 & #VWID4 follows the #VWID5 ! As #VW-Brand boss Ralf Brandstätter in conversation with @WN_Wolfsburg
