Riley Riley

Volkswagen is promising five new EVs for Australia before 2025.

They include a Golf-sized hatch, along with a more premium ID.3, family SUVs the Tiguan-sized ID.4 and ID.5, plus the funky ID.Buzz people mover and its ID.Buzz Cargo van derivative.

All five are scheduled go into production before 2024, all within about the next 20 months – at an average of one all-new EV every five months.

And, all 100 plus Volkswagen dealerships nationwide will be equipped to sell and service EVs in perparation.

The line-up for the Volkswagen ID.3 will pursue maximum attainability in a premium and drivable way, with a pricing target under $60,000 in order to maximise national and state-based electric vehicle incentives.

The Volkswagen ID.4 and the coupe-style design-led ID.5 will provide Volkswagen Tiguan customers with three choices in the medium SUV segment – battery-electric with a 500km-plus range, or high-performing and efficient turbocharged petrol engines.

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz and ID.Buzz Cargo will pursue maximum individuality and style, coexisting with the function of a long driving range, practical payload and plenty of space for occupants and cargo alike.

Volkswagen Passenger Vehicles director Michal Szaniecki said he could confirm the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5 will both start production and go on sale next year, so the message for customers thinking about switching to a BEV: “We’re here in 2024, and here in a big way.”

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles director Ryan Davies said technical approval for the ID.Buzz and ID.Buzz Cargo means that both are locked in and ready to go for production to start at the end of 2024.

“The ID.Buzz is a people mover that stops traffic, people stop, stare and smile. It’s an incredible blend of style and function that will capture the imagination of Australians – and is reflected by our ambitious sales volumes,” he said.
