Volkswagen presented its new electric car. Well, almost…
Formally, the Volkswagen ID.7 is still covered in camouflage, but a lot is already known about this sedan. For example, the design is an almost complete repetition of the Volkswagen ID.AERO concept, only slightly simplified lights and reduced wheel rims. However, the characteristic X-shaped headlights and the “dome” of the roof remained.
Currently, the exact length of the Volkswagen ID.7 electric car is unknown (it is expected to be about 4.8-4.9 m), but the known wheelbase is as much as 2.97 meters. This is significantly more than the Volkswagen Passat usual car, or Tesla Model 3, and Hyundai Ioniq 6 electric cars, which are considered the main competitors.
It is also known about the use of the updated MEV+ platform with increased batteries: the developers promise a distance of 620-700 km on one full charge. By the way, the charging process itself should also become faster. In addition, you can expect rear or all-wheel drive, which has been a characteristic of the MEV platform since its first appearance and use.
Finally, it is worth noting the interior of the Volkswagen ID.7 electric car, where two details are the most interesting. First, a large 15-inch touchscreen monitor – so the size race continues. Secondly, the “smart” ventilation system Smart Air Vents, which involves voice control and recognition of drivers and automatic climate adjustment according to their preferences.
Full information about the new Volkswagen ID.7 electric car will appear closer to the sales start, which should take place in the middle of 2023. Moreover, sales of the new product will be global: the Volkswagen ID.7 electric car should be sold in Europe, America, and Asia.
