Volkswagen reveals exclusive preview of future ID.7 Tourer

Volkswagen has presented the first two photos of the still camouflaged estate version of the all-electric top model ID.7. To be known as the ID.7 Tourer, the new model is to be launched in Europe in 2024. Volkswagen will show off the final design in the coming months.

For more than 60 years, there have been the practical models that have so far been called Variant or Shooting Brake (in the case of the Arteon). With the new ID.7 Tourer, the brand is providing a first glance at its first all-electric estate, which will debut in 2024.

The ID.7 Tourer has been shown off in two shots, and in an autumnal camouflage state-of-dress. The camouflage foiling is based on the multi-layer paint of an ID.7 sedan (yet to arrive in New Zealand), that was displayed by Volkswagen at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.

In keeping with the season, the imagery of the sticker is kept in the Indian summer look; the QR codes at the rear integrate seamlessly into the camouflage.

Volkswagen says there is plenty of space in the high-quality Tourer interior thanks to short overhangs and long wheelbase. If there are five people on board, a boot volume of up to 545-litres can be available – loaded up to the height of the rear seat backrest. If this is folded down, the volume of the almost two-metre-long cargo space can rise to up to 1,714-litres.

Like all models of the ID. family, the new body shape of the ID.7 is based on the MEB platform of the Volkswagen Group. The result of this modular approach - which makes the most of interior space - is a car with the character of an elegant full-sized hatchback version with a particularly generous sense of space and an increase in boot volume.

Like the ID.7, the ID.7 Tourer is to be produced at the Volkswagen plant in Emden in Germany. The ID.7 sedan and Tourer will debut in New Zealand during 2024.
