New Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer: first official pictures of all-electric estate

The zero-emission family estate sector is about to grow, with VW’s first electric load lugger

We’ve already seen the forthcoming Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer testing on the public road, but now the maker has issued official imagery of its electric estate, as it gears up for a 2024 launch. 

The ID.7 saloon arrived earlier this year and we can expect the more practical estate ‘Tourer’ version in the first part of 2024 – almost five years on from the conceptual preview of the ID. Space Vizzion. Indeed, Volkswagen appears to be doubling-down on its boxy offerings, with the new Passat only offered in estate guise. 

In a release revealing the new shots of the ID.7 Tourer, VW claims the estate has a drag coefficient of 0.24 – just 0.01Cd down on the ID.7 saloon and 0.01Cd better than the new Passat Estate

Although these teaser images only show the side and rear of the ID.7 Tourer, it gives us a good look at the new car with plenty of styling borrowed from the saloon. We expect the front and rear to be identical to the regular ID.7, aside from the extra mass of the long-roof bodystyle. The curved silver detailing that runs from the A-pillar to the rear of the saloon is expected to be carried over. 

As for the interior, the ID.7 Tourer should look and feel identical to the saloon here, too. A large 15-inch touchscreen will sit in the middle of the dash, and there will be permanent climate control functions beneath it. There will also be a small driver’s display embedded behind the steering wheel for a minimalist look. 

Compared to the petrol and hybrid-powered Passat, the ID.7 Tourer loses some rear practicality. The boot volume stands at 545 litres with the rear seats up and 1,714 litres with them down – 145 litres and 206 litres worse than the Passat, respectively. 

Powering the ID.7 Tourer will be the same selection of battery and electric motors as the saloon. The entry-level ‘Pro’ model will be offered with a 77kWh battery, plus a 282bhp electric motor on the rear axle. In saloon form this is good for up to 382 miles of range, with the upcoming ID.7 Pro S boasting a maximum of 435 miles thanks to its larger 82kWh battery. We expect the Tourer to fall short of these numbers a little bit due to its extra bulk. 

A GTX version of the ID.7 saloon has been teased with what we expect will be a dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain, although there's been no suggestion as yet that an ID.7 Tourer GTX will join the range at a later date.
