Volkswagen group is pushing hard for EVs in Singapore, will Malaysians enjoy them too?

Volkswagen Group Singapore recently showcased its latest and upcoming electric vehicle (EV) models at the Volkswagen Electric City event which was held from 11 to 12 May 2024. This exclusive EV-only event which was held at the Volkswagen showroom on Alexandra Road, featuring a range of models from Volkswagen, Skoda, and Cupra, the performance brand from Seat.


Interestingly, the Volkswagen Group Singapore is accelerating its EV push with 11 new models from the VW group lineup, including the sleek ID.4 and the spacious ID. Buzz, which have yet to debut in Malaysia. The event will highlighted the impact of these vehicles on the EV landscape in Singapore. Will Malaysians also get these vehicles here?

Moreover, the event marked the launch of seven electric models from Volkswagen and Skoda, with four additional EV models from Volkswagen and Cupra on display. Key models include the ID.4 and ID.5, both SUVs powered by a single electric motor delivering 282bhp and 545Nm of torque to the rear wheels. 

The ID.4 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds and offers a range of up to 550km, while the Volkswagen ID.5’s aerodynamic design allows it to reach up to 556km. Both models support DC charging up to 135kW, enabling a 10 to 80 percent charge in 33 minutes. 

For sportier options, the ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX are available, featuring dual electric motors that increase power to 335bhp and reduce the 0-100 km/h time to 5.4 seconds. These models can accept higher charging speeds of 175kW, reducing the 10 to 80 percent charge time to 26 minutes.


On top of that, Volkswagen Electric City also previewed upcoming models, including the ID. Buzz, a retro-inspired MPV reminiscent of the Volkswagen Type 2, available in configurations for five, six, or seven passengers. The second-generation ID.3 hatchback which was also be on display, comes equipped with a 58kWh battery offering a range of up to 500km. 

Visitors also had the chance to check out the ID.7, Volkswagen’s flagship electric model with an augmented-reality head-up display and a range of up to 615km.

So now we ask again, with so many Malaysians going bananas for EVs, will the Volkswagen group treat us to any or all of these 11 EVs here in Malaysia as well? At least 1 or 2 should be coming here for sure, the rest remain unknown.
