Volkswagen unveils ID.7 Tourer electric estate car for Europe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Volkswagen has unveiled a new electric vehicle (EV) from its ID.7 lineup, this time offering an estate car aimed at Europe’s upper mid-sized automotive sector.

On Tuesday, Volkswagen shared a press release formally announcing the ID.7 Tourer electric estate car, or station wagon, for the European market. The ID.7 Tourer is set to debut with two battery configurations, the larger of which will feature a WLTP range of up to 685 km (~425 miles) and a max charging capacity of up to 200 kW at DC quick-charging stations, according to Volkswagen.

“The new ID.7 Tourer is a perfect estate model, especially for families and long-distance drivers,” said Imelda Labbé, Volkswagen brand board of management for sales, marketing and after sales. “With plenty of space and a high level of comfort, it impresses fully electrically with long ranges!”

Volkswagen will produce the Passat-like ID.7 Tourer alongside the ID.7 sedan and ID.4 SUV at its EV plant in Emden, Germany. The automaker also says it will open Europe-wide presales in the first quarter of this year. The automaker has not yet shared a price for the electric station wagon.

The newly launched vehicle will also include features such as automatic air conditioning and vent control, along with a panoramic sunroof featuring smart glass that can be toggled between opaque and clear settings. Volkswagen also says that, with five people on board, the ID.7 Tourer offers up to 605 liters (~21 cubic feet) of luggage capacity with the rear seats in a cargo position, or up to 1,714 liters (~61 cubic feet) when loading all the way up to the back of the front seats.

During its full-year 2023 earnings call, Volkswagen reported roughly 394,000 battery-electric vehicles delivered worldwide last year, representing an increase of 21.1 percent from 2022. The ID.7 Tourer launch follows Volkswagen’s debut of the ID.7 sedan, or fastback saloon, which is currently sold in the European, North American and Chinese markets. It’s not clear at this point when or if Volkswagen will launch the ID.7 Tourer in other markets than Europe.

In December, the ID.7 sedan earned five stars on the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) safety rating test, which measures vehicle safety based on the adult occupant, child occupant, vulnerable road users and safety assist categories. Volkswagen has also debuted its ID.Buzz electric remake of the VW Bus in Europe and the U.S., and the company is expecting to launch as many as 25 EVs in North America by 2030.
