Three motor options ready for the launch. The ID.5 will be launched in the European markets in 2022 with three different motor options. The ID.5 Pro has its electric drive motor mounted at the rear with 128 kW (174 PS) of output and 235 Nm torque, while the ID.5 Pro Performance delivers 150 kW (204 PS) and 310 Nm. In the ID.5 GTX, there is one electric motor with 162 Nm torque on the front axle and another with 310 Nm torque on the rear axle (total torque 460 Nm) – the dual-motor all-wheel drive system can deliver a maximum of 220 kW (299 PS)*.
ID.5 Pro and Pro Performance with rear-mounted motor. The rear-mounted motor in the ID.5 Pro
and ID.5 Pro Performance ensures agile handling and good traction, while also creating a small turning circle of 10.2 metres (11.57 metres for the ID.5 GTX due to the additional drive on the front axle). The vehicle is powered by a permanently excited synchronous motor (PSM) with a high degree of efficiency: Its efficiency is well above 90 per cent in the main driving range. The electric motor is positioned above the rear axle and sends its torque to a two-stage 1-speed gearbox including differential. Including the power electronics, which process the control signals and switch the currents, the drive unit only weighs around 90 kilograms.
ID.5 GTX with dual-motor all-wheel drive. The rear axle of the ID.5 GTX flagship model is also fitted with a PSM electric drive motor. This has the same basic technical data as the ID. Pro Performance: 150 kW (204 PS) output and 310 Nm torque. An asynchronous motor (ASM) is installed on the front axle with 109 PS and 162 Nm. This is particularly compact and light in its construction, can be overloaded on a temporary basis and only produces minimal drag losses when it runs without generating electrical energy. The sporty ID.5 GTX accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and continues up to its electronically limited maximum speed of 180 km/h. Per 100 km, it consumes 17.1 kWh of energy in accordance with WLTP with a projected range of 490 km (WLTP).
All-wheel drive strategy for optimum dynamics in the ID.5 GTX. The intelligent control system for the dual-motor all-wheel drive in the ID.5 GTX always aims to achieve the optimum in efficiency, dynamics and ride stability. In many situations, the drive motor on the rear axle is able to power the vehicle all by itself. As soon as the driver wants to shift to a sportier style or needs more traction, the ASM on the front axle is activated. This takes place in just a few fractions of a second and so smoothly that it is unnoticeable for the driver.
Maximum efficiency. The ID.5 Pro accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds and its maximum speed is 160 km/h (restricted). Its average consumption is just 16.2 kWh per 100 km, which corresponds to a projected range of up to 520 km (WLTP). The key performance figures for the ID.5 Pro Performance are: from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.4 seconds, top speed of 160 km/h, 16.2 kWh consumption per 100 km and a projected range of up to 520 km (WLTP). The figures for the ID.5 GTX: from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, top speed of 180 km/h, 17.1 kWh combined consumption per 100 km4 and a projected range of up to 490 km (WLTP).
Coasting or recuperation. Recuperation is an important factor for efficient driving in all ID.5 motor options. Using the rocker switch behind the steering wheel, the driver decides whether the vehicle should coast or recover energy when the accelerator is released. If the D (Drive) position is engaged, the ID.5 will switch to coasting in most situations, while the electric drive motors rotate with almost zero load. If position B (Brake) is engaged on the other hand, then overrun recuperation will generally be activated: the electric motors function as alternators on a temporary basis and feed current back into the battery. Depending on the driver’s preference, the Eco Assistance system can manage the coasting and recuperation processes as soon as the vehicle approaches an area with a reduced speed limit. To do this, the system uses information including navigation data.
Brake energy recuperation. All gentle and moderate deceleration is also performed by the electric drive motors using recuperation. The highly efficient PSM in the rear normally deals with this deceleration alone, though the ASM can also contribute when braking at a high speed. The ID.5 models can brake electrically alone up to a deceleration rate of around 0.3 g, which corresponds to an energy recovery level of more than 100 kW. The hydraulic wheel brakes do not step in until above this point. This transition is practically unnoticeable for the driver, and recuperation remains active almost until the vehicle comes to a stop.
A sporty all-rounder. Nimble in the city, agile on rural roads, laid back and quiet on the motorway: the ID.5 and ID.5 GTX are sporty all-rounders that deliver a confident and safe ride experience. The lithium-ion battery, which is located under the passenger compartment, ensures a low centre of gravity and equal distribution of the axle loads. Thanks to its powerful traction and 16 centimetres of ground clearance, the E-SUV coupé often manages to go even further, beyond the point where the tarmac comes to an end.
Connected control. In the ID.5, the control systems for the drive system and brakes are closely connected. The standard Vehicle Dynamics Manager, a high-speed computer, works closely with the ESC stability control and all-wheel drive control (in the ID.5 GTX). When taking corners with a sporty style, the electronic XDS differential lock (or the XDS+ in the ID.5 GTX) also communicates with the vehicle dynamics manager and rounds off the handling experience. The control system in the ID.5 is a lot quicker and more precise than that of a conventionally powered vehicle; what’s more, the electric drive motors can implement control signals a lot more quickly than any combustion engine.
Up to five driving profiles in the ID.5 GTX. The driving profile selection function is standard in all ID.5 models. With this function, the driver can influence how the electric motors and steering system work as standard in the Eco, Comfort, Sport and Individual profiles; in the Sport profile, the front electric motor on the ID.5 GTX is always activated. In the ID.5 GTX, the driver can also opt for the Traction profile, which is designed especially for low speeds on slippery terrain. If the driver wants to achieve a particularly dynamic style on-road, they can switch the ESC stability control to a Sports mode.
*) ID.5 GTX, 220 kW – combined power consumption in kWh/100 km: 17.1 (NEDC); combined CO₂ emissions in g/km: 0; efficiency class A+++. Maximum electrical output 220 kW: Maximum output that can be accessed for a maximum of 30 seconds, calculated in accordance with UN GTR.21. Provisional figures. The amount of power available in individual driving situations depends on various factors, such as ambient temperature and the charge status, temperature and condition or physical age of the high-voltage battery. The availability of the maximum power requires the high-voltage battery to be between 23°C and 50°C and have a charge level of > 88 %. Deviations from the aforementioned parameters in particular may lead to a reduction in power, through to the complete unavailability of the maximum power. The battery temperature can be indirectly influenced by the auxiliary air conditioner to a certain extent and the charge level can, for example, be adjusted in the vehicle. The amount of power available at a particular time is shown in the vehicle’s power display. To maintain the high-voltage battery’s usable capacity as effectively as possible, a battery charging target of 80% is recommended if the vehicle is used daily (to be switched to 100% prior to long-distance journeys for example).
