Volkswagen has unveiled the ID.7, the brand’s first all-electric model for the upper mid-size class, boasting a combination of excellent aerodynamics, a new efficient drive generation, and an impressive range of up to 700 kilometers (WLTP), or 434 miles. The company showed off its “near-production concept car” to journalists.

Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said, “With the ID.7, we are taking the next step in our electric offensive. The limousine offers a high level of comfort and long ranges.” Volkswagen has designed the ID.7 to be the first MEB model with a completely new, highly efficient drive generation, making it the most powerful and highest-torque electric drive motor in a Volkswagen ID. model to date.

The ID.7 also introduces a new operating and display concept in response to customer feedback, featuring a 38-centimeter (15-inch) infotainment system screen, an augmented reality head-up display, and a new air conditioning operating concept.

Imelda Labbé, Member of the Brand Board of Management for Sales, Marketing, and Aftersales, commented, “The ID.7 is an extremely important model for the Volkswagen brand in Europe, China, and North America. The ID.7 offers an attractive package that will excite both existing and new Volkswagen customers all over the world.”

Enhanced assistance systems, such as the Travel Assist with swarm data, enable the ID.7 to take over lateral and longitudinal control as needed, significantly reducing the strain of driving. The ID.7 is part of Volkswagen’s accelerated electric offensive, with ten new electric models set to launch by 2026, further expanding the company’s range of electric vehicles.
