Large interior with a premium, feel-good ambience. Thanks to the wheelbase of 2.77 metres and the space-saving architecture of the modular electric drive matrix (MEB), the interior has the spacious feel of a lounge. This added space highlights the new options opened up by electrically powered designs and showcases the body style of the future in the form of the ID.5. Despite the sloping, sporty roof line, the interior is spacious with a modern, cosy and elegant feel. Its design emphasises the overall feel of space: the dash panel appears to float lightly as it is not connected to the centre console. A soft surface covers the top of the dash panel and is divided by a seam. In the dark, the 10 colours in the background lighting system (standard) trace the interior lines – the ID.5’s lighting architecture is an integral part of the design concept.
A high standard of comfort on board. Getting in the ID.5 is easy, and visibility is ideal because the driver and the passengers – particularly those in the rear – sit comfortably high up. The front seats are equipped with armrests on the inside, which can be individually and flexibly adjusted to the driver and front passenger. In between the two armrests, there is the long centre console, which is particularly versatile. For instance, the customer can individually select the position of the drink holder. While the vehicle is moving, noise levels are very low – the E-SUV coupé unlocks its power almost silently. One reason for this is its sophisticated aero-acoustic concept, while the complex insulating measures in the body are another. Innovative technologies reduce the weight, such as the side sills, which are made from a composite of aluminium and ultra high-strength steel.
Plenty of space for luggage. In its basic dimensions, the volume of the ID.5’s luggage compartment is 549 litres, making it slightly bigger than the ID.4. When the rear seat backrests are folded down, the volume reaches 1,561 litres when loaded to roof height. The Plus assistance package contains the electric Easy Open & Close boot lid, which can be opened and closed with a mere foot movement. With the optional electric ball coupling, the ID.5 Pro and ID.5 Pro Performance can pull up to 1,200 kilograms (braked, with an 8 per cent gradient), while the ID.5 GTX can pull as many as 1,400 kilograms.
Covers free from animal products. The cover materials differ depending on the interior design but are always free from animal products. The textile option comes as standard. The ID.5 GTX has seats featuring a combination of textile and leatherette. Depending on the specification package, the centre seat panels may be trimmed with ArtVelours, a microfibre material that includes recycled materials such as PET bottles.
