Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer price, specs & release date

These are the first official pictures of the Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer estate – due on sale alongside the ID.7 Fastback saloon later in 2024.

  • New 'Tourer' estate body style with 605-litre boot
  • 86kWh battery means range of up to 426 miles
  • Infotainment system includes AI chatbot integration

If you're already familiar with the new ID.7, then this addition to the lineup won't come as a surprise. If not, all you need to know is the ID.7 is Volkswagen's flagship electric car – a long, luxurious 'fastback' coupe-saloon with five seats and a big boot.

The ID.7 Tourer will be a few grand more expensive than the fastback's £55,000 starting price. Between the hefty cost and its long 4.9-metre length, the ID.7 is less of a rival for cars like the Tesla Model 3 and Kia EV6, and competes more closely with larger models like the Hyundai Ioniq 6 and Tesla Model S.

Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer styling

Probably the least notable thing about the ID.7 Tourer is its styling. The only real change between it and the standard ID.7 is the new rear end, which features a longer, flatter roof like a conventional estate car, allowing more cargo space behind the rear seats.

The only other change worth mentioning is the Tourer's standard-fit roof rails. These let you carry awkward items on the roof, or fit Volkswagen's optional 'Comfort' roof box, which adds 460 litres of cargo space.

Otherwise, the ID.7 Tourer looks mostly unchanged from the fastback. The front has a simplistic minimal look, with the VW badge flanked by thin lines that blend into the standard LED headlights. Taking in the car as a whole, you'll either think it looks a little too conservative, or just the right amount of understated, but it's certainly less flashy than most rivals in the segment.

We'll talk more about the Tourer's cargo area later on but the passenger space is essentially unchanged compared to the standard fastback model. That means you get Volkswagen's current, somewhat controversial dashboard design with nearly all physical buttons removed and a massive 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system in their place.

Complaints have been fiercest about the touch-sensitive sliders for temperature and stereo volume. These are still a bit fiddly to use but Volkswagen's now illuminated them in the ID.7, so they're no longer impossible to use at night time. You won't hear anyone moaning about the generous rear seat space, however, with acres of head and legroom.

You'll find some cool features in the cabin. All cars include an augmented-reality heads-up display (HUD) to project key info into the driver's eyeline – that isn't noteworthy, but it's the only system we know of that will take navigation instructions from your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and display them in the car's HUD. Most rivals force you to use their inferior built-in nav software to have guidance integrated into their HUDs.

The options list also includes posh features like a panoramic glass sunroof that can switch electronically between transparent or opaque using clever liquid-crystal technology. Elsewhere, you can spec massaging front seats to help melt away the stress of long trips.

Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer boot space

This is the ID.7 Tourer's party piece – a huge, square boot that measures 605 litres, with the rear-seat backs in their upright 'cargo' position. That's a modest 73 litres up on the ID.7 fastback but that figure's a little deceptive because it's only measured to the parcel shelf. The extra boot height permitted by the ID.7 Tourer's taller roof isn't taken into account by that figure and it makes this model better at carrying bulky or awkwardly shaped items.

Fold the rear seats down and space jumps to 1,714 litres – 128 ahead of the fastback. You'll find easy access to your cargo thanks to the Tourer's hatchback-style boot lid, although the fastback's saloon-like body also hides a handy hatchback-style opening so there's little to split the two models here.

A luggage net comes as standard in the Tourer to help tie down items that could roll around. You can also head to the options list where you'll find a divider system for luggage in the boot, or a rear-mounted bike carrier that can handle the weight of up to two e-bikes.

Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer range, battery and motors

Volkswagen's only released the headline range figure for the ID.7 Tourer – 426 miles when fitted with the larger 86kWh battery pack, which is a fraction down on the equivalent ID.7 fastback's 435-mile figure. The company hasn't revealed the Tourer's range when fitted with the smaller 77kWh battery pack but expect it to be a few miles less than the 382 miles promised by the standard ID.7.

You can fast charge the 77kWh battery at up to 175kW, which should return a 10-80% charge in around 28 minutes. The 86kWh battery may be larger but it can hit rates of 200kW, so its 10-80% figure is similar at roughly 30 minutes.

From launch, you'll only be able to get the ID.7 Tourer with a single motor mounted on the rear axle, just like the fastback. This makes 210kW (282hp), so expect fairly stout acceleration with 0-62mph times in the six-second range. More powerful dual-motor four-wheel-drive versions are likely to arrive later in the model's lifecycle.

This is Volkswagen's flagship EV so expect it to come with a price tag to match. ID.7 saloon models are priced around £55,000, so expect the Tourer to add a few thousand pounds on top of that. The bigger battery and a few choice options will see that figure head closer to £70,000.

All models are, at least, well equipped, with 19-inch alloy wheels, roof rails and LED lights as standard on the outside. Inside, standard kid includes keyless entry and starting, a luggage net, ambient lighting, an augmented reality heads-up display, reversing camera, climate control, heated front seats and a 15-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Volkswagen hasn't confirmed a hard UK release date for the ID.7 Tourer but we expect it to arrive at the same time or shortly after the ID.7 saloon – due on sale in autumn 2024.

When can I buy an ID.7 from Motorpoint?

With the ID.7 and ID.7 Tourer arriving later in 2024, we expect the first ID.7s to show up at Motorpoint at some point in late 2025 with substantial discounts over their brand-new list prices. You could take out a PCP finance deal on any of our current great-value electric cars, before rolling any equity you've built up at the end of the agreement into your ID.7 purchase.
