Volkswagen finally brings the all-electric ID. range to New Zealand, starting with the ID.4 SUV and the ID.5 coupé-SUV. Interestingly, there is no mention of the ID.3 sedan.

“We are delighted to announce New Zealand pricing, model range and key specifications for the all-new ID.4 and ID.5. Whether you opt for the purely SUV body shape of the ID.4 or the ultra-aerodynamic coupé silhouette of the ID.5, your next Volkswagen is truly electrified,” said Greg Leet, General Manager of Volkswagen Passenger Vehicles.

“We believe that our model range positions us extremely well in the electric vehicle market segment. To launch the ID. product lineup with our mid-size ID.4 SUV below the New Zealand government’s clean car rebate threshold of $80,000 was imperative.

The first ID.  the models coming to New Zealand will be the ID.4 SUV and the ID.5 SUV coupe.

VW claims a 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 km/h. With a ground clearance of 21cm, Volkswagen claims the E-SUV also performs well in soft off-road terrain.

Using the 125 kW DC fast chargers, the ID.4 can be recharged to cover the next 320 kilometers (according to WLTP) in around 30 minutes.

The Pro+ adds IQ. Bright matrix LEDs with an LED light bar on the front increase the screen size to 12 inches and improve the sound system. Meanwhile, the ID.5 gets a largely similar treatment, although the 12-inch screen is standard. The ID.5 Pro+ benefits from the same Premium audio system as the ID.4 Pro+, while the wheels are increased to 20 inches.

High-performance GTX versions are available overseas, but not here...yet.

“Our team has worked extremely hard with our factory and are absolutely delighted to be able to release this key information today, which is a milestone moment for our brand.

“We are very lucky to be in this position, as New Zealand will be one of the first countries outside of Europe and the United States to launch the ID range,” added Leet.
