This is the new top-of-the-range Volkswagen and this is what it looks like

Volkswagen is focusing on zero-emission models and on a brand new car family that, with its 2023, has become the pinnacle of the German manufacturer’s electric cars. Pick it up and you’ll find it’s packed full of tech.

If there’s a car that took all the limelight at the Shanghai Motor Show 2023, it was Volkswagen’s new top-of-the-range electric car. This is what will henceforth be the model with the most complete and complex equipment and technology in the arsenal and which will replace the already established SUV ID.4 as the flagship. In a world debut with links between Germany, China and the United States, the fat and ugly Volkswagen ID.7 chair is one of the big shocks of this year.

The new Volkswagen ID.7 measures 4956 mm in length, 1862 mm in width and 1537 mm in height. One of its key features is its 2965 mm wheelbase and reduced footprint, which affects the interior space. In terms of design, it’s clear that this breed has its origins in the ID.Vizzioni concept, especially when you look at its streamlined aerodynamic profile and upper body.

In front of its sharp wheel arches, a horizontal LED line that connects to both ends of the optics and that identifies the electric Volkswagen shines. In front of the axis of the rolling sun, the peak begins at the height, which covers much of the length with the style.

We stop here because there is a sunroof that stands out with sharp glass that can switch between opaque and transparent, a configuration that can be accessed both through touch combinations and through the voice commands of the ISS assistant.

The Volkswagen ID.7 brand itself is considered as a model intended for the upper middle class and this is evident in its equipment. We have said something about this matter above because of the virtuous glass ceiling. Its qualities make this Volkswagen premium sedan and limousine type suitable for long distance travel.

This new electric four-door offers the option of front climatronic seats, something unheard of in a Volkswagen, which include heating, cooling and even drying according to needs.

This seat will also be available as a function. The air condition of this vehicle is intelligent and is distributed in the passenger compartment, in fact, through an intelligent air diffuser. By doing so, it is reduced and shaped, from which it detects the proximity of the key and is modified according to the command of the voice command.

All this technological equipment goes further with the incorporation of augmented reality on the front screen and a 38-centimeter-15-inch central screen from which all these configurations and options for infotainment can be considered. The 700-watt Harman Kardon sound system includes 14 high-end speakers and a subwoofer in the trunk.

Commanding power, time and autonomy

Developed on the platform developed by MEB, the ID.7 market with the most powerful electric motor in the range: a total of 210 kW, equivalent to 286 horsepower. In itself, the great effect of its mechanism lies in its electric autonomy of up to 700 km, the highest in the range. All this from the possibility of charging up to 200 kW, which will carry from 10 to 80 percent of the total possible power in 25 minutes.

This option will be the largest and will be capable with a battery of 85 kWh net, the largest of the modern brand. Below will be the cheapest alternative, a 77 kWh battery with a capacity of up to 170 kW in direct current that will make the car travel up to 610 km in one charge.

To drive, Volkswagen launches the ID.7 prepared with some levels of autonomous driving. Through Travel Assist, a function in conjunction with CARIAD, the company’s membership program, the car can take lateral and longitudinal control, something typical of vehicles with level 2 automation.

This system also helps the driver in motor turns at speeds exceeding 90 km/h and with parking, with independent movements and also with a memory function at a maximum distance of 50 meters, from which the car takes over and human watches and monitors. either sitting or outside.

The price is still to be confirmed and that it could reach 65,000 coins, all that remains is to wait, after the World Premiere in Berlin and the Shanghai Motor Show, for the long-term launch on the roads. Production will begin in June 2023 at the Emden, Germany plant. Units will come from there for the European and United States markets.

It is in the United States, where precisely the ID.7 will be available from 2024. In Europe and China, where customer models will be manufactured, it will arrive this year.
