The 2023 Volkswagen ID.5 Estate is the electric Passat Wagon you’ve been dreaming about

Back in 2016, Volkswagen launched the first ID concept, signaling the birth of an all-electric sub-brand. Four years later and the German firm introduced the first two ID-badged production models, the ID.3 hatchback and the ID.4 crossover. At least six more electric vehicles are scheduled to hit the roads by 2023 and it seems Volkswagen is also working on a station wagon based on the ID Space Vizzion concept. The latest info coming from Volkswagen says that it will have a range of 700 km (around 435 miles).

The fact that Volkswagen wanted to put an all-electric wagon in production isn’t exactly news, but initial projections said it will arrive in 2022. A recent post by CEO of VW Passenger Cars, Ralf Brandstatter, reveals that the model has been delayed until 2023. However, it’s also unveils that the wagon will provide more range than initially claims. The figure has been updated to 700 km, which converts to around 435 miles. It’s unknown whether Brandstatter is talking about real-world range or just an ideal estimate, but it sounds impressive nonetheless.

The wagon is described as "an elegant shooting brake" with a "high-quality interior" that will be as roomy as a VW Phaeton and will boast "a huge trunk." Brandstatter also talks about fast charging capability and impressive acceleration and top speed.

The wagon is being developed under the "Aero 8" project name, but the production model will likely be called the ID.5 Estate. A midsize wagon, the ID.5 Estate will essentially be an all-electric alternative to the Volkswagen Passat Estate. The electric wagon won’t make it to the United States, but Volkswagen will also build an ID.5 sedan that will cross the pond to North America.

Drivetrain specs are not yet available, but the ID.5 Estate could borrow technology from the ID.3. The hatchback is available with three different battery packs, with the largest generating 82 kWh for an estimated rear-world range of more than 240 miles.

The wagon could arrive with a single-motor layout rated at around 270 horsepower and a dual-motor version that delivers more than 350 horses.

The ID.5 Estate is part of a plan to roll out no fewer than six ID models by 2023, which will join the existing ID.3 and ID.4. The lineup is set to expand in 2021 with the ID.6, which will be based on the ID Roomzz concept. 2022 should see the addition of the ID.7, a van based on the ID Buzz concept, and the ID.5 sedan, based on the ID Vizzion. The ID.5 Estate will arrive in 2023, when Volkswagen also plans to introduce the ID.2, a crossover the size of the T-Roc, and the ID.1, a replacement for the E-up!.
