New Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer: EV flagship costs from £52k

The electric saloon spawns an estate variant with up to 426 miles of range

  • Up to 1,714 litres of boot space
  • 77kWh or 86kWh battery options
  • Costs from £52,240

UK pricing has been announced for the new Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer, and it's one of the brand’s most expensive models yet. At £52,240, the estate variant costs £690 more than the Volkswagen ID.7 Fastback and appeals to customers who want the same EV driving experience, but with added cargo-carrying capacity. UK customers can place an order from April 18th this year for an ID.7 Tourer in entry-level Pro Match trim.

Although the ID. Buzz is more expensive, the ID.7 sits as Volkswagen’s flagship EV, costing over £5,000 more than the chunkier ID.5 SUV. With a focus on comfort and sturdy, high-quality materials, it sits as Volkswagen’s most premium electric model, rivalling the Polestar 2 and Hyundai Ioniq 6. Neither offers an estate variant, so the ID.7 Tourer currently faces little competition, other than the much more expensive BMW i5 Touring.

What do we know about the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer?

Let’s start with the feature that sets the Tourer model apart from the regular Fastback – the boot. With conventional, boxy estate proportions, the ID.7 Tourer has 1,714 litres of boot space with the rear seats folded down. Not only is this a 128-litre increase over the Fastback, it's more than you’ll get in the BMW i5 Touring. Even when carrying five passengers, you’ll still get between 565 to 605 litres of space depending on the angle of the rear seats.

There’s additional storage space under the boot floor, but no front boot or ‘frunk’ that you’ll find in some other EVs, like the Tesla Model 3. Despite the bigger boot, the ID.7 Tourer hasn’t grown in footprint; its 4,961mm length is identical to the Fastback and roughly on par with the Mercedes E-Class Estate and Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

Powering the ID.7 Tourer is a 282bhp, rear-mounted electric motor, shared with the ID.7 Fastback. This is paired with either a 77kWh battery in Pro Match trim, or a 86kWh battery for the pricier ‘Pro S’. Maximum estimated range sits at 374 miles and 425 miles respectively. Peak rapid-charging speeds of 200kW for the bigger battery and 175kW for the smaller result in identical 10-80% charging times of 28 minutes.

A sportier ID.7 Tourer GTX model will join the range in the future, using the smaller 77kWh battery but packing four-wheel drive and more horsepower.

What does the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer look like?

Up front, you’ll struggle to tell the ID.7 Tourer apart from its Fastback twin, both sharing the same LED headlights and optional illuminating VW emblem. There’s a contrasting roof and a silver roof line accent that stretches from the base of the windscreen to the rear LED light bar. Buyers have a choice of aerodynamic alloy wheels ranging from 19-inches to 21-inches. 

What about the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer’s interior?

Inside, the interior is identical to that of the ID.7 Fastback, with a 15-inch central infotainment display, digital driver’s display and a head-up display with augmented reality technology. As we’ve seen with the newly-facelifted Volkswagen Golf and Skoda Octavia, the ID.7 Tourer gets Chat-GPT artificial intelligence integrated into its voice assistant.

Among the suite of driver safety and assistance features and various extras, a notable feature is the optional ‘smart glass’ panoramic sunroof that can transition from transparent to opaque at the press of a button.

How much will the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer cost and when can I order one?

Prices start from £52,240 for the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer in base level Match Pro trim – the marque recently reintroduced Match models across its range in an effort to offer customers greater value for money. Above that will sit Pro S and GTX models, although pricing for these models has not yet been confirmed.

Order books open on April 18th for the ID.7 Tourer Match Pro, while customers wanting a pricier model will have to wait until the summer...
