The VW ID.5 is the third addition to the popular ID range. Its sporty looks combined with SUV usability, make it a great option if you’re looking for a spacious family car that has a unique look to it. Of course, like the rest of the VW ID lineup, you get the same impressive performance and reliability you’d expect from a VW electric car.


Slick from the outside, spacious on the inside. The VW ID.5 combines style with functionality. There's plenty of head and leg room, as well as tech features like ambient lighting and a large, simple to use digital display.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
