Volkswagen just unveiled the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7, showing off the very first all-electric VW model for the upper midsize sedan segment. Although GM does not currently have a direct competitor for the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7, The General will eventually launch several new all-electric sedan models under the Chevy and Cadillac brands. As such, the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 will eventually be rivaled by a new, forthcoming midsize GM EV sedan.
The exterior of the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 focuses primarily on aerodynamic optimization for enhanced efficiency and longer range. VW says the four-door has a very slippery drag coefficient of 0.23.
The interior of the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 features a new display and operating concept, and includes a 15-inch infotainment screen, augmented reality head-up display, and backlit touch sliders, as well as a new air-conditioning operating concept integrated in the infotainment system. The sedan offers Climatronic seats with massage function, plus a panoramic sunroof with smart glass opacity. There is also a suite of level two driver assist features offered, including Park Assist Pro with Memory Function.
As for the powertrain, 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 is equipped as standard with a single-motor, rear-wheel drive setup producing 282 horsepower, powered by a standard 77 kWh battery pack. A larger 86 kWh pack will be optional in other markets. Range-per-charge will obviously depend on the battery size, but the sedan is expected to return as much as 435 miles based on the European WLTP cycle, or roughly 350 miles yes converted to the EPA cycle. Official EPA range estimates are not currently available. The powertrain also includes DC fast charging capabilities up to 200 kW where possible.
The Volkswagen ID.7 will launch this fall in Europe and China, with a launch in North America set to follow sometime in the 2024 calendar year. Pricing information will be available at a later date. Production will take place in Germany. Looking ahead, Volkswagen will exclusively produce electric vehicles in Europe from 2033 onwards.
