The ID. 4 and ID. 5: new infotainment system, new electric drive

The ID. 4 and ID. 5: new infotainment system with intuitive operation, new electric drive that delivers power and efficiency

Volkswagen Australia has opened registrations of interest for the all-new ID. 4 and ID. 5 models, inclusive of the GTX performance variants for local launch in 2024. The two electric models will be offered with an improved state-of-the-art infotainment system and increased range.

Imelda Labbé, Member of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, says: “Our customers can look forward to exceptional technical performance with the new ID. 4 and the new ID. 5. Software and infotainment are state-of-the-art. In addition, there are extensive assistance systems that leave nothing to be desired. Both ID. 4 and ID. 5 models are at the top of the segment with their brand new technologies and the acknowledged balance of driving, comfort and spaciousness.”

Brand-new technologies. Both models will be equipped with the latest-generation software along with brand new state-of-the-art infotainment system. The infotainment system will come with a 12.9-inch touchscreen that has a completely new menu structure along with touch sliders for air conditioning and volume control. In addition, both models will be equipped with a multifunction steering wheel that is complete with new operating logic.

Furthermore, both models have been designed to have the driving mode selector separate from the housing of the Digital Cockpit and designed as a steering column switch which creates space for the larger infotainment display. Operation of the ID. 4 and ID. 5 has been made easy with the new IDA voice assistant, which responds precisely to natural voice commands. Volkswagen also offers a premium sound system from Harman Kardon with 480 Watts of music output and 10 speakers for GTX models.

The most important new technology feature in all ID. 4 and ID. 5 models is the 82 kWh (gross) and 77 kWh (net) battery, resulting in high-efficiency driving. Thanks to its electric drive motor on the rear axle and a new-generation battery, it has been possible to reduce energy consumption while at the same time increasing power. An electric drive motor with 210 kW4 is used in the rear-wheel-drive models ID. 4 Pro2 and ID. 5 Pro3. The power delivery on both models is dynamic in every situation as the torque of the 210 kW drive motor is 545 Nm.

GTX models – 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds5. Both the ID. 4 GTX6/7 and ID. 5 GTX6/ flagship models will deliver a system power of 250 kW. A good indicator of this is the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h.  With a time of 5.6 seconds5, both GTX models clearly beat the six-second mark. The ID. 4 GTX and ID. 5 GTX are electronically limited to a top speed of 180 km/h.

Energy for another 178 kilometres in 10 minutes. Both ID. 4 and ID. 5 models are equipped with a 82 kWh (gross) and 77 kWh (net) battery. Pro models are rear-wheel drive and DC charge with 135 kW. The all-wheel-drive GTX models offer a DC charging capacity of 175 kW. With the maximum charging capacity allow both models to be capable of taking on enough energy for a further 178 kilometres in about just 10 minutes.

More comfortable and dynamic at the same time. To complement the new drive system, the running gear has also been reconfigured. Furthermore, Volkswagen has refined control of the optional adaptive chassis control and designed the Vehicle Dynamics Manager for an even greater spread between comfort and dynamics.

2.ID. 4 Pro with 210 kW (286 PS), power consumption in kWh/100 km: combined 18.4-15.9 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions in g/km: combined 0. 

3.ID. 5 Pro with 210 kW (286 PS), electric power: combined power consumption 18.0-15.5 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions in g/km: combined 0. 

4.Range determined on the rolling road test bed in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure in the most range favourable equipment variant of the ID. 4 Pro and ID. 5 Pro with a net battery energy content of 77 kWh. The actual range values may differ depending on the equipment. The actual range achieved under real conditions varies depending on the driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, outside temperature, number of passengers/load, topography and the ageing and wear process of the battery. 

5.Acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds determined with the specified maximum power. The maximum power is available at the highest possible battery state of charge and with an optimal operating temperature range of the high-voltage battery.

6.Maximum power determined in accordance with UN-GTR.21. The maximum power is available at the highest possible battery state of charge and with an optimal operating temperature range of the high-voltage battery. The power available in the individual driving situation depends on variable factors such as outside temperature,  temperature-, charging- and conditioning status or physical ageing of the high-voltage battery.

7.ID. 4 GTX with 250 kW (340 PS), power consumption in kWh/100 km: combined 18.7-16.7; CO₂ emissions in g/km: combined 0.
