Everything You Need To Know About The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7

April 2nd, 2024 by

The automotive world continues its transition from internal combustion engines to electric motors. As carmakers keep releasing excellent electric models, standing out in the electric vehicle (EV) market is becoming increasingly challenging. The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 is the German car manufacturer’s fully electric follow-up to the hugely successful Passat and is likely to take the EV world by storm. Our team at Capistrano Volkswagen compiled this preview to highlight some of the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7’s specs and features.

2025 Volkswagen ID.7 Overview

The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 is a fully electric luxury sedan. It’s part of Volkswagen’s EV lineup, which includes the successful ID.4 crossover, and is part of the brand’s goal of diversifying its North American electric lineup. Being a sedan means that the ID.7 has everything it needs to be a family car while remaining more elegant and agile than most SUVs. It also has an impressive list of safety and infotainment tech features, most of which are available in its standard trim.

Highly Performant and Economical Electric Powertrains

The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 will be available in two trims: the Pro and Pro S. Both are powered by a single electric motor that can produce 282 horsepower and 402 pound-feet of torque. This will push the ID.7 from zero to 60 mph in an estimated 6.3 seconds, an excellent time for such a spacious and elegant vehicle.

Despite its power and performance, the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 doesn’t compromise on efficiency. The Pro trim comes with a 77 kWh battery pack, which translates to over 380 miles of range. If you’re looking for even more range, the Pro S trim will deliver. It comes with a larger 86 kWh battery pack and can run for up to 435 miles before needing a recharge. Even if you’re currently driving a gas-powered vehicle, these impressive range figures will make the transition from gas to electric as smooth as possible.

Impressive Infotainment Tech Features

As you’d expect from a modern vehicle, the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 will have plenty of useful and exciting infotainment options. All models will come with a huge 15-inch horizontal touch-screen interface that you can use to control all its features and functions, plus an augmented reality head-up display that shows you essential info right on your windshield. Other tech innovations are Volkswagen’s seat climate control system, which will make its debut on the ID.7, and the electrochromatic panoramic sunroof that can go from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button.

Although the touch-screen interface makes accessing all the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 functions easy, it’ll also come with a voice assistant that uses artificial intelligence to help you control everything without taking your eyes off the road. You can command it to access navigation, infotainment, and climate features, but it can also answer general questions. Future iterations of the ID.7’s AI feature will expand its capabilities even further.

Elegant and Comfortable Interior

Since many sedan drivers use their cars as family vehicles, having a well-designed and comfy interior was a top priority for the 2025 Volkswagen ID.7’s designers. There’s plenty of space in both rows of seats for passengers of all sizes, including headroom for taller ones. The trunk has almost 19 cubic feet of cargo space, which should be enough for most situations. If you ever need more, the second row of seats folds to increase cargo volume to an impressive 56 cubic feet.

Climate control is easy to use via touch screen or voice, and the newly designed smart air vents maximize heating or cooling effectiveness. Another comfort-oriented feature is the ID.7’s ability to detect when the driver is approaching the vehicle based on the position of their key. It’ll then either heat up or cool down the cabin in advance, depending on the weather conditions.

Imposing Exterior Look

Designing a modern sedan is challenging, as designers need to find the ideal balance between classic and innovative. The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 does that perfectly, with a silhouette that instantly lets viewers know they’re looking at a sedan. It also has a sleek, modern look, accentuated by its narrow LED strip in the front. The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7’s shape is highly functional, as the aerodynamic front end and roof help reduce air drag and improve range.

Modern Active Safety Features

The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 is also a very safe vehicle, as certified by the fact that it received a maximum five-star rating on the European New Car Assessment Programme safety test. Besides protecting passengers in case of a collision due to its strong frame and extensive air bag system, the ID.7 will also come with a long list of driver-assist systems that help the driver notice any potential road situation quickly enough to deal with it. Some of the safety features it’s likely to include are:

  • Automatic emergency braking: This feature uses special sensors to detect an imminent frontal collision with an object or another vehicle. If the driver doesn’t react in time, the system will automatically apply the brakes to mitigate or avoid the impact.
  • Adaptive cruise control: This function makes highway driving easier and safer by maintaining a user-set speed and adjusting it to keep a safe distance from the car in front.
  • Lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist: This senses when the ID.7 starts drifting out of the center of its lane without the turn signal being on and gently nudges it back.
