2025Volkswagen ID7

The 2025 Volkswagen ID7 encourages car shoppers to reconsider the car versus crossover, as well as the gas-powered versus the electric car. The latest and longest offering in VW’s growing ID family of electric vehicles honors the classic touring car and modernizes it for the electric age. 

Volkswagen will soon roll out the ID7 sedan. It will be a mid-size electric family four-door similar in size to the now-discontinued Passat. Based on the ID7 Aero concept, the ID7 is designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. While it will be offered with a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain, a rear-wheel drive variant will be the first to launch. 

Impressive Features of 2025 Volkswagen ID7

Let’s dive into the impressive features of the 2025 Volkswagen ID7 and make our choice for a new car.

2025 VW ID7 Price

No word on pricing, but as the 2025 Volkswagen ID7 will be positioned as the halo model of Volkswagen’s EV lineup in the U.S. Expect prices for the entry-level Pro to start at just over $50,000. The Pro S, will get 20 inch alloy wheels as standard, plus the top specification seats and automatic LED. This will make it likely to sticker at about $55,000.

Range and Battery Life

A 77.0-kWh battery pack borrowed from the ID.4 will be standard and should be good for about 300 miles of driving per charge. That’s more than the ID.4 SUV, with the ID.7’s more aerodynamic shape helping to extend the range, but some rival EV sedans offer longer ranges. A larger 86.0-kWh battery will join the lineup later but may be exclusive to the more powerful dual-motor all-wheel drive model.

2025 Volkswagen ID7 Performance

The APP550 is a permanent synchronous magnet motor that spins to 13,000 rpm and develops 282 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. The motor features a rotor with stronger permanent magnets that offer high thermal load capacity. Along with that a stator with a larger effective number of windings in combination with maximum wire cross-section. It has a new oil and water-cooling system, as well as low-friction components in the one-speed transmission.

The new Volkswagen e-motor, which will also power the long wheelbase, three-row ID Buzz, has been developed to operate most efficiently between 5000 and 11,000 rpm. This means lower energy consumption at freeway cruising speeds. It will deliver its peak power and torque even when the battery is at a low state of charge.

New e-motor and improved efficiency apart, the big story of the ID7 is inside. There is no conventional instrument panel. The standard head-up display providing the driver with information ranging from vehicle speed to road lane markings. Legally required information such as vehicle warning lights and a digital speed readout are displayed on a small screen.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPGe

The EPA hasn’t released fuel-economy estimates for the ID.7 yet. We’re expecting to see higher numbers than the ID.4, which is rated for up to 107 MPGe city. 

Versatile Hatchback design

The long 117.0-inch wheelbase, which is an inch longer than the Ioniq 6’s, makes for a roomy, open cabin. Wide door openings and a higher ground clearance than most cars make getting in and out easy. Its rounded roofline doesn’t chop off heads in the spacious back seats of the Volkswagen ID.7. At 5-foot-8, I could stack a fist on my head and it didn’t hit the ceiling. 

2025 Volkswagen ID7 Interior

Four adults fit fine, and the rear middle seat is better used as a cupholder or as a pass-through for longer items in the hatch. The 60/40 split seats fold down from the seat tops or from a latch in the hatch. The hatch is deeper than wide, and expands from 18.8 cubic feet to a crossover-like 56.0 cubic feet with the rear seats down. The flat load floor can drop another two inches for more room. The two storage cubbies beneath can hold the charge cord, or it can be stowed in the attaché case-like front trunk area.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

We expect the ID.7 to come standard with a host of driver-assistance features, including staples such as automated emergency braking as well as higher-tech offerings such as automatic high-beam headlamps and adaptive cruise control. For more information about the ID.7’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features are likely to include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking
  • Standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Standard adaptive cruise control


Volkswagen has been slow to roll out its electric vehicles in markets outside of Europe—the U.S. does not get the smaller ID3, nor the coupe-like ID5, and there’s no word on whether we’ll get the sharp-looking, Golf-like ID2 small car. But from 2025 the ID7, the ID4 and the three-row ID Buzz will joined by two yet unseen MEB-based electric Volkswagens, one a small crossover about the size of the Taos, and the other mid-sized, three-row SUV. Let us know in comments if you were able to make your choice now.
