    Would have expected you to test the boot being bigger, or at least say “that’s to the parcel shelf so you lose xx”

    So I’ve just been on VW configurator and it’s basically £5000 more for the most basic id5 with the smallest power option than a much better equipped Model Y .The basic model id5 doesn’t even have a heat pump as standard let alone all the added extras you get with a model Y . You’re talking a minimum £7000 more and even then it’s massively slower, less economical , less technology and doesn’t travel as far, and with a Tesla you have access to the only proper charging network world wide. Oh , and you don’t have to service a Tesla where VW want to sell you a service package on top!

    Ok where do I sign up😂

    No reason to buy this over an EV6 or Ioniq 5

    All VW are doing here is opening the door even wider for Chinese brand EVs to take European market share.

    In the unlikely event that you do want one, the GTX is available for £44K as an ex-demo at VW dealers. I would still buy a model Y over one though, and I don’t like Tesla`s.

    I wonder if VW will still be around long enough to launch their id2, which may be the car which saves them?

      Um….. I think they will be fine. Plenty to fall back on even if the current ID range is rather meh at the very best

    Still waiting for VW to release a small ID2
