2024 Volkswagen ID.7 nears production
As the VW ID.7 nears production, it looks to have answered someof the most pressing questions about covering distance in an EV.
LONG-RANGE EV CRUISER
The ID.7 is Volkswagen’s newest entry into the electric-vehicle market, set to debut early in 2024. It marks the company’s push towards larger and more spacious electric vehicles.
The vehicle’s conception began in response to demand for larger electric cars with more space, both in the cabin and cargo areas. Measuring a little under five metres in length, the ID.7 looks to have the space issue covered.
It is constructed on the company’s MEB electric car platform, integrates a spacious cabin with an efficient electric drivetrain, so despite being labelled a limousine (sedan), the ID.7 should be able to seat up to five passengers.
The car will be available in all-wheel-drive configuration, with an impressive level of power and efficient energy delivery. It will produce 210 kW and be capable of a WLTP distance of 700 km on a single charge, claims the Wolfsburg automaker.
Absolutely crucial is that Volkswagen keeps the car’s overall mass as low as possible to ensure the ID.7 has optimal handling characteristics, low energy use and even, perhaps, an engaging driving experience.
Ultimately, Volkswagen’s ID.7 aims to offer a combination of performance, comfort, sustainability, and practicality. As part of Volkswagen’s goal of offering the widest range of EVs by 2026 – and of obtaining an 80 per cent market share in Europe by 2030 – the ID.7 promises to be a game-changer in the electric-vehicle segment, taking families and haulers to the next level on their journeys in eco-friendliness.
