Volkswagen teases its first electric station wagon with the new ID.7 Tourer
A new Volkswagen EV will start rolling out next year. Volkswagen has revealed the first images of the ID.7 Tourer, the brand’s first electric station wagon.
The flagship ID.7 electric sedan is getting an estate version, or station wagon, for those of you in North America.
After starting production of the ID.7 in August, Volkswagen opened orders for its second MEB-based global EV to European customers later that month. The electric sedan joins Volkswagen’s growing ID family as the sixth model, joining the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5, ID.6, and the ID.Buzz electric truck.
Volkswagen’s ID.7 comes in two versions – the entry-level ID.7 Pro starts at $62,000 (€56,995) with a range of up to 385 miles (621 km) WLTC.
The ID.7 Pro S will launch later this year, featuring a larger 86 kWh battery for a range of up to 435 miles. Volkswagen’s new electric sedan will begin rolling out in North America next year.
According to Volkswagen’s latest update on Monday, the ID.7 gains a station wagon version.
Volkswagen publishes the first images of its ID.7 Tourer
The new Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer maintains the sedan’s aerodynamic structure with 0.24 cd, which is slightly higher than the ID.7’s 0.24 cd.
Based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform, the electric station wagon benefits from short overhangs and a long wheelbase.
Even with five people in the back, the platform offers ample interior space with more than 19 cubic feet (545 liters) of luggage space. That’s more than the 2024 Ford Explorer’s 18.2 cubic feet.
When the seats are folded down, the EV offers about 6.5 feet (about 2 meters) of cargo space with up to 60.5 cubic feet (1,714 liters).
The ID.7 Tourer will follow the ID.7 into production at the Emden plant in Germany. This will be the second MEB-based model built in northwest Germany.
The electric station wagon will be launched next year in Europe. Volkswagen will release more details, including uncamouflaged images, closer to the launch date.
Volkswagen’s ID.7 is designed for comfortable road trips. The station wagon version provides additional cargo capacity for families or long trips.
Instead of producing another SUV, the ID.7 Tourer offers buyers another option that will likely provide better efficiency. There’s no word on whether the electric station wagon will make its way stateside, but with the ID.7 due next year, there’s a possibility.
Although the American market is dominated by SUVs and trucks, an all-electric station wagon may find a place among those looking for more efficient options.
