The ID.7 Tourer Joins the Lineup

Volkswagen has recently launched its 2025 ID.7 hatchback, and now it has introduced a new addition to the lineup: the ID.7 Tourer wagon. This wagon version of the electric midsizer has the potential to be available in the U.S. market as well.

The ID.7 hatch is Volkswagen's answer to the Tesla Model S and is set to be released as a 2025 model later this year. It aims to fill the gap left by the discontinued Passat sedan.

European Launch and Potential U.S. Release

While the ID.7 Tourer will soon be available for sale in Europe, it remains unclear whether it will also reach the U.S market. However, Volkswagen has hinted at the possibility during the unveiling of the ID.Space Vizzion concept. The concept, which served as a preview of the ID.7 Tourer, made its debut at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

Volkswagen has not yet released full specifications for the ID.7 Tourer, but it has mentioned that the wagon will come with two battery options. The larger battery will offer a maximum 200-kW charging rate and approximately 425 miles of range on the WLTP test cycle. When tested using the stricter EPA test cycle, the range is likely to be closer to 300 miles. The wagon's aerodynamic design, with a drag coefficient of 0.24, helps optimize range.

Features and Technology

The ID.7 Tourer shares the same interior features as the hatch, with the main difference being the additional cargo space in the wagon. With the rear seats up, the wagon provides 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 60.5 cubic feet when the seats are folded flat.

As Volkswagen's flagship car, the ID.7 comes equipped with the latest technology. Some of the notable features include an augmented reality head-up display, a 15-inch infotainment screen, a climate-control system that can direct air at specific occupants or throughout the cabin, and a panoramic sunroof with smart glass that can automatically dim. The ID.7 also includes an automated driver-assist system for highways, automated parking with a memory function, and other advanced safety features.

Built on Volkswagen Group's MEB platform, which is designed for mainstream electric vehicles, production of the ID.7 hatch and wagon takes place in Emden, Germany. The same facility also produces the ID.4 compact crossover.
