Volkswagen ID.7

Volkswagen’s new all-electric SUV, the ID.7, is the first electric vehicle in the world’s upper midsize class. The vehicle has a WLTP range of up to 700 kilometres, a superior powertrain, a spacious compartment, and high-end technology, making it an attractive option for long-distance travel.

This year, the ID.7 will début in Europe and China, and in North America in 2024. The vehicle is approximately five metres in length, with an enhanced customer-centric operational philosophy and a superior aesthetic.

The ID.7 establishes new standards for efficiency based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). Depending on the vehicle’s equipment, it has an aerodynamic design and a drag coefficient of about 0.23. The vehicle’s large wheelbase and compact overhangs provide ample interior space, allowing all passengers to travel in comfort.

In addition, it features cutting-edge innovations such as a 15-inch infotainment screen, a head-up display for augmented reality, and an innovative air conditioning operating system. In addition, it has a Climatronic adjustable upholstery, a massage function with AGR certification, and a Harman Kardon 700-watt sound system with 14 premium loudspeakers. The new panoramic sunroof with smart glass is dimmable electrically and can be controlled by voice commands and touch via the new IDA voice assistant.

Volkswagen will offer two trim variants for the ID.7: Pro and Pro S. Each is propelled by an electric motor that can generate 282 horsepower. The Pro’s 82.0 kWh battery cell provides a claimed range of 615 miles on a single charge. In addition, 170 kW DC accelerated charging is supported. The Pro S’s larger 91.0 kWh battery cell provides a range of 700 kilometres. It provides up to 200 kW of DC fast charging power.

The electric vehicle’s drivetrain is remarkably efficient, featuring a robust electric drive motor with 284 horsepower. Volkswagen intends to launch ten new electric vehicles by 2026, including the ID.7. It will be produced in Emden, Germany, for the European and North American markets, while equivalent ID.7 versions will be produced in China.
