Also set to debut in Australia alongside the Volkswagen ID.4 is the ID.5, a low-slung 'coupe SUV' version.

While local pricing and specifications haven't been announced yet, it's possible that the line-up will mirror the ID.4 SUV, albeit with a slightly higher price tag.

Volkswagen ID.Buzz

The Volkswagen ID.Buzz people carrier and ID.Buzz Cargo commercial van harps back to its roots with short overhangs, long wheelbase, and open glasshouse – thanks to riding on the firm’s dedicated Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) platform.

While retro-inspired ID.Buzz vans can charge its 77kWh (usable) battery at up to 135kW DC speeds, it’ll be the first Volkswagen’s to support vehicle-to-home (V2H) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) bidirectional charging.

Volvo EX30

The premium small electric SUV is a compelling package offering value, an eco-conscience, and high performance. Priced from $59,990 to $69,990 before on-road costs, the EX30 EV provides between 460km to 480km of claimed WLTP driving range depending on the variant.

The Performance model can go from 0-100km/h time in just 3.6 seconds – in line with the Tesla Model Y Performance, Kia EV6 GT, and Ford Mustang Mach-E GT.

The Volvo EX30 rivals the similarly-priced Tesla Model 3, Cupra Born, and Polestar 2 electric cars. But, electric SUV competitors include the upcoming all-new Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV, and larger Tesla Model Y.

Volvo EX90

The Volvo EX90 is set to compete with similar large electric SUVs such as the BMX iX and Tesla Model X, once it is introduced in 2024. It will act as the larger, tech-filled and higher-end version of the EX30. It is estimated to cost Australians around $120,000 for the base model and reach the $150,000-figure for more expensive variants with additional features.

It will be equipped with a 111kWh battery pack which will provide the EX90 with up to 480 km of driving range. The EX90 will be built with a twin-motor AWD configuration, giving it 365 kW of power and 900 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the base model will have 295kW of power and 770 Nm of torque.

A defining feature for the EX90 would be its safety technology. Volvo went all-in when it comes to the safety features for the EX90 as they have equipped the EX90 with their best and most advanced sensors and software.
