The New 2024 Volkswagen ID.7 Reviews

The new 2024 Volkswagen ID.7, which was unveiled with considerable excitement at the 2023 CES technology exhibition in Las Vegas, will be the longest-range VW EV ever, with a considerably more luxurious and user-friendly cabin. The new Volkswagen ID.7 will compete with the Tesla Model 3, as well as higher-end electric vehicles such as the Kia EV6, Hyundai Ioniq 6, BMW i4, and Polestar 2.

New Volkswagen ID.7 Exterior and Interior

Similar to the Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Ioniq 6, the new Volkswagen ID.7 boasts a saloon-style profile. Volkswagen calls it a saloon, but it’s unclear if the production model will feature a saloon boot opening or a more practical liftback-style rear hatch. A Volkswagen ID.7 shooting brake estate variant will also be available. The new VW ID.7 will have a smooth, wind-cheating design and themes similar to existing Volkswagen ID electric vehicles. The front end will be meticulously contoured, with front air curtains channeling airflow down the sides. The curved roofline also helps to reduce drag, increasing the potential driving range of each charge.

Volkswagen ID.7 Interior

The cabin of the new Volkswagen ID.7 represents a significant advancement for the electric ID line. In response to consumer feedback, an all-new display with a vast 15-inch center touchscreen and a better digital driver display has been introduced. It also has a cutting-edge, augmented reality head-up display that is projected onto the windscreen. Its small overhangs focus on passengers, giving it a ‘particularly roomy sensation,’ according to Volkswagen. It will also most likely feature a vast and functional boot.

New Volkswagen ID.7 Engine

The new Volkswagen ID.7 will have an electric driving range of up to 435 miles, which is much greater than the 374-mile range of the Tesla Model 3 Long Range. The new Volkswagen ID.7’s battery has not yet been given any specifics. The variant with the longest range is probably going to have a bigger battery than the 77kWh unit at the top of the current Volkswagen ID lineup.

The new ID.7 is built on the MEB electric car architecture, which is already utilized by the VW ID.3, ID.4, and ID.5 (plus the Volkswagen ID.Buzz). It will be a rear-wheel-drive car in standard form, with the same 174PS and 204PS engines as today’s versions. A Volkswagen ID.7 GTX sporty range-topper is also possible. This might be four-wheel drive, with front and rear electric motors producing 299PS.

Price and release date for the new Volkswagen ID.7

The new Volkswagen ID.7 pricing places it towards the top of the company’s lineup. They will most likely start at £55,000, with most models exceeding the £60,000 mark. This places the new ID.7 above the current Volkswagen ID.5, which starts at £50,000. So yet, the new Volkswagen ID.7 has only been seen in disguised form. The entire production version will be revealed in spring 2023, and sales will begin later this year, according to sources. The first deliveries are expected in early 2024.
