“Parallel to our electric offensive in Europe, we are also focusing on Asia and North America. The ID.7 is an extremely important model for Volkswagen in China, Canada and the USA. It impresses with plenty of space, innovative assist systems and modern features like a high-end infotainment system. Our customers will receive a genuine premium package with the first all-electric flagship model from Volkswagen,” explains Imelda Labbé, Member of the Board of Management for Sales, Marketing and Aftersales of the Volkswagen brand.
As a reflection of the international importance of the model, the world premiere on 17 April will take place with broadcast links to China, the USA and five major European cities. The live stream will start at 2:00 pm CEST.
For Volkswagen, the new ID.7 is a further milestone on its path to offering a purely electric model range. Already by 2026, Volkswagen will offer the widest electric range of all manufacturers in Europe – from the entry-level model for less than 25,000 euros, to a new electric compact SUV, and up to the ID.7 as the flagship electric model.
The ID.7 will be the next global electric model. In China, the ID.7 will round off the top of the range, alongside the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.6 electric product lines offered there. There will also be three new ID. models on the North American market in future. Sales of the ID. Buzz in the USA and Canada will already start in 2023, and the ID.7 is scheduled to follow in 2024. Together with the ID.4 produced in Chattanooga, the ID.7 and ID. Buzz will accelerate the electric offensive in America. By 2027, Volkswagen will invest more than seven billion euros in the electric and digital transformation of the Volkswagen brand in North America.
Worldwide production now starting. The ID.7 will be produced in the German plant in Emden for the European and North American markets. Volkswagen has invested more than one billion euros in the transformation of the North German plant into an electric mobility production site. In China, the counterparts of the ID.7 are to be produced locally.
