Volkswagen ID.5: range measured at 100 and 130 km/h (spoiler: Tesla Model Y must be careful)

516 kilometers is the official range of the Volkswagen ID.5 with 77 kWh. But what is the real reach? So how far can you get if you drive at 100 km/h (or 130 km/h) on the highway? We test that!

Below you will read that the Volkswagen ID.5 is very economical at 100 km/h. This is partly due to the beautiful weather: sunny, dry and windless. Outside it is 29 degrees and inside the temperature is 24 degrees, so the air conditioning also consumes some power. Furthermore, the conditions are sublime.

If you look at the photos of the on-board computer (the average power consumption is shown at the bottom right of the screen), you can see that we drove a circle of exactly 100 kilometers. The route starts and ends at the same point, to eliminate the possible influence of wind and height differences.

Volkswagen ID.5: range at 100 km/h

At 100 km/h, the Volkswagen ID.5 (77 kWh, 204 hp) has an average power consumption of only 15,7 kWh/100 km† If you would completely empty a full battery of 77 kWh, you would come 490 kilometer far! Tribute and flowers for Volkswagen.

When we tested the Hyundai Ioniq 5’s range, it was also perfect EV weather. It scored 17.2 kWh/100 km and covered 424 kilometers, so the Volkswagen ID.5 is considerably more economical.

The Tesla Model Y scored 16.0 kWh/100 km, but according to my diary that was not a beach day. So that can probably be a little more economical. It does show how clever the ID.5’s power consumption is.

And later in the fall, how far will you get? Look at the Volkswagen ID.4! In the fall it consumed 20.9 kWh/100 km.

Volkswagen ID.5: range at 130 km/h

Some people are a bit giggly about our 130 km/h test. As if driving 130 km/h is some kind of myth, the Loch Ness monster but on the highway. But take a look at our figures: 100 kilometers traveled in 47 minutes, with an average speed of 126 km/h. The A73 from Nijmegen to Venlo makes it possible.

The average power consumption is 23,3 kWh/100 kmwhich equates to a 130 km/h range of 330 kilometer† That is almost as economical as the Tesla Model Y (22.9 kWh/100 km).


On a beautiful summer day, the power consumption and range of the Volkswagen ID.5 are also wonderful. You can travel 490 kilometers on a battery charge of electricity and that strengthens our confidence in the electric future.

Finally, a fun fact about driving 130 km/h: the extra power that it costs is pushed back in by the fast charger in 4 to 5 minutes. While you are 15 minutes faster than at 100 km/h (see photos above).
