Hello dear forum members,

I am from Stockholm, Sweden and currently running on a diesel Tiguan, but last week ordered ID.5 GTX Stonewashed blue with some extras and the preliminary production week is week27, 2022. The car is expexted to be delivered around week 32 if everything goes accordingly. That means a total waiting time of just over 7 months.

Let’s see how it goes, I will try to update the issue as I get more info from either the salesman or my Volkswagen app.

Cheers!

pics please!!
@Vander, I was busy with the car, drove the car for 450km during the weekend with my wife, who pushed me to get an EV car.

Anyway, I am here to share what has happened :)

On 25/11, I have picked up my car from the dealer.
The first time I sit in the car, I quite enjoyed and got exited.
Although I have sat on ID4s and ID5s in the showroom many times :), this felt different, i a better way :)


The first time I put my foot on the accelerator pedal I felt, "oh hoh hoh" like Santa :)

The steering feels different, heavy - spongy but comfortable and feels stable.
The suspension on 19" winter wheels (with Nokian Hakkapelitta R5 SUV tires) feels definately more comfortable than my Tiguan.
The body/chassis - the whole vehicle feels very well build.
I will be interested to test on 20" summer wheels but that comes around April, 5 months later.

During the first 450km, I drove 170km on highway - max 120km/h speed - the rest is on 80-100 and of course in city traffic. The outside temperature is between 0 to +2 celcius degrees the whole time.

I was able to test my Halo wallbox(which is currently running at 3.7kW with 16A - 1phase connection) and 11kW at a mall, as weel as IONITY Plug&Charge.
For some reason the IONITY was only giving 53 kW charging speed(at 17% SOC) after 80km highway run. Maybe the battery was cold, maybe the charger was bad - I am not sure - but it was not 135kW :(

The heatpump works magic, maybe the PTC heater also helps I am not sure - but the car heats up very fast when you start driving - which is very positive in Sweden, during winter.

Well, as a first impression, I am very satisfied with the vehicle and how it performs. Well above my expectation.

@stewhite, yeah looks cool!

Do you have pics from interior as well.
I wonder if you have the blue accent colors for the leather on the door card or black.
