Volkswagen will debut a lightly disguised version of the new ID5 full-electric crossover at the Munich auto show in September ahead of the car’s full unveiling later this year.
The coupe-styled, four-door model will be the VW brand’s third MEB-based electric model in Europe after the ID3 hatchback and ID4 crossover.
The ID5 was previewed by the ID Crozz concept at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show.
The Munich show car will be the performance-oriented GTX version, which has the biggest battery available to MEB-based cars at 77 kilowatt-hours. The ID5 also will offer all-wheel drive.
The production ID5 will be unveiled this winter, a VW brand spokesperson said.
Deliveries will start in the first quarter of next year. A key rival will be the Tesla Model Y, which will be built at the EV maker’s new European factory near Berlin.
