ID 5 : a well-rounded electric Coupé-styled SUV by VW

The VW ID 5 is a stylish and modern-looking electric vehicle that features a sleek silhouette with a sloping roofline and sharp creases. Its front fascia is dominated by a large VW logo, and the LED headlights are designed to give the car a futuristic look.

The overall design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for those looking for an EV that stands out. It shares all of its important mechanical bits with the ID4, but swaps that car’s traditional boxy SUV styling for a sloping coupe roofline that brings a bit of extra styling panache. The VW ID 5 GTX presents a more sporty and aggressive styling, with additional design elements and features compared to the regular ID 5.

On the inside, it’s business as usual including some really comfortable seats up-front that offer plenty of adjustability to let you get settled in behind the wheel.  The VW ID 5 has a spacious and comfortable interior that is well-appointed with high-quality materials and modern technology. The cabin is well-lit and has plenty of headroom and legroom, making it suitable for passengers of all sizes. The infotainment system is easy to use and features a large touchscreen display that is responsive and intuitive. Still, there’s loads of storage cubbies, and the cabin’s minimalist design is easy on the eyes.

The VW ID 5 is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers instant torque and smooth acceleration. With a range of up to 400 kilometers on a single charge, this vehicle is perfect for those who need to travel long distances without worrying about running out of battery. The electric motor is also virtually silent, making for a quiet and peaceful driving experience.

Plug the ID5 into a 7kW home wallbox charger, and you’ll top its battery up from 0-100% in just over 12 hours. Find a 130kW public charger, and you’ll be able to take it from 10-80% capacity in half an hour.

The VW ID 5 is a pleasure to drive, with responsive steering, smooth acceleration, and agile handling.  Around town, the ID5 accelerates smoothly and swiftly, and its accurate steering lets you thread it down tight streets with ease. The suspension is tuned to deliver a comfortable ride, even on bumpy roads.

 At motorway speeds the ride settles down and the ID5 cruises along with impressive levels of refinement. There is a bit of wind noise from the wing mirrors, probably more noticeable here thanks to the silent electric drivetrain. The regenerative braking system also helps to maximize the car’s range by recharging the battery during braking.

The VW ID 5 is a great electric vehicle that offers a compelling combination of style, performance, and practicality. It has a spacious and comfortable interior, a powerful electric motor, and a smooth and enjoyable driving experience. While the price tag may be higher than some of its competitors, the VW ID 5 is well worth the investment for those looking for a high-quality EV that delivers in every aspect. Overall, the VW ID 5 is an excellent choice for anyone in the market for a stylish and capable electric vehicle.
