Volkswagen ID.7: The "people's" electric saloon is almost ready...

Volkswagen ID.7

El "Project Trinity" of the Volkswagen Group it seems that it is finally taking shape in a production model. For the Bavarian group it is very important. In fact, they showed us some time ago how it could be based on a series of teasers and various graphic material. Well, after having to face several problems with the development of all its technology, here we have a new preview of the Volkswagen ID.7. Yes, because that is what your model will be called.

It recently saw the light of day in a conceptual format called ID Aero. Well, now the German firm goes a step further and shows it with a new digital camouflage that "hides" what its final design will be like. However, the model that finally makes it to the assembly line will be very similar to the one you can already see. Then you will ask yourself, why did he debut like this? Simple: with him they go to CES Las Vegas to call the attention of the Yankee customer…

The physiognomy of the new Volkswagen ID.7 is defined, despite, being “dressed” in camouflage…

As you already know, CES Las Vegas brings together not only technology manufacturers, car manufacturers also want their "flash ration". And the design of an attractive, modern and technological electric vehicle as it is the Volkswagen ID.7 is a perfect showcase. First of all, it stands out for the "digital" camouflage made up of 40 layers of paint and a surface divided into 22 pixel-type remote-controlled electroluminescent zones...

And you will wonder how it works? Very easy: they connect the ID.7 to a sound system and the painting lights up to the rhythm of the music. Well, leaving this decorative gadget aside, we will tell you that under it hides the almost definitive design of the future Volkswagen electric flagship. You just have to see the lines of the pair of LED optics or the front width that flows towards a waistline and rear inclined to channel the airflow.

However, it fails to hide that we are dealing with a large saloon. It's more, reaches 4,94 meters in length by 1,86 meters wide and 1,53 meters high. On the other hand, the battle is almost close to 3 meters since it remains at 2,97 meters. In any case, the final model that reaches the production line will evolve the aesthetic line already seen in the ID range. In addition, it will introduce new elements such as alloy wheels or exclusive tones.

The interior is technological and debuts the air conditioning system "Smart Air Vents"...

Inside the new Volkswagen ID.7 is more technological than its brothers. It stands out for the inclusion of a new, more minimalist design and, incidentally, a higher quality (at least visually). hence the new 15-inch central touch display or head up display with augmented reality. And not only that, it also premieres a intelligent air vent system called “Smart Air Vents”.

As Volkswagen explained, it recognizes the driver and adapts to their climatic needs. What's more, through voice control we can say “Hello Volkswagen, my hands are cold!” and the car will activate the steering wheel heating and direct the air vents to the hands so that the heat reaches them. However, although it will bring endless technological innovations, there are other gadgets that could have improved based on the criticism they have received.

One of what seems, will be, one of the big drawbacks are the haptic steering wheel controls. The brand recently announced that it would recover the controls of a lifetime on the steering wheel and other areas of the car. But all the rumors suggest that the ID.7 will not bring them, at least for now. You only have to see the images to realize that for now they are haptic as well as those that serve to activate lighting and security.

Thanks to the MEB platform, it announces a range of up to 700 kilometers…

Volkswagen ID.7

Leaving aside that "small mistake" We will tell you how the technique of the future Volkswagen ID.7 will be. The platform that will bring it to life is the MEB that we know but conveniently updated. For now they do not say the chosen configuration, but they do the battery will have an electrical autonomy of up to 700 kilometers. And not only that, this figure has been obtained by following the WLPT approval protocol, which is one of the strictest...

When will the new Volkswagen ID.7 hit the market?

Volkswagen ID.7

As you know the Volkswagen Passat in sedan configuration has its days numbered. Many are those who already say that the ID.7 will be his replacement, although due to size and market position it has nothing to do with it. However, we are facing a new attempt by the German house to penetrate the Yankee market with a product that we doubt will be successful. Even more so, knowing that SUV's rule and that sedans are in the doldrums.

If everything goes as planned the Volkswagen ID.7 will officially debut in the second quarter of the newly released year 2023. So we will be very attentive to all the news that may come from the German house... Patience...
