The 2025 Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer: It’s Not a Hatchback

Volkswagen’s press release mentions hatchback and estate – we’ve decided it’s an estate

Volkswagen has released initial images and details of its ID.7 Tourer, marking the automaker’s entry into the all-electric severely-desirable estate segment, aka station wagons. Scheduled for a European launch in 2024, the ID.7 Tourer adds a new dimension to Volkswagen’s extensive history of estate models, which spans over 60 years.

Volkswagen announced the name change from the working title of ID.7 to ID.7 Tourer alongside the release of camouflaged images of the vehicle. The final design is expected to be made public in the upcoming months. The ID.7 Tourer is part of Volkswagen’s ID family of electric vehicles, which are built on the company’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) platform.


The ID.7 Tourer is designed with short overhangs and a long wheelbase, attributes that are part of the MEB platform. These design elements contribute to a spacious interior with a trunk volume of up to 545 litres when five people are seated. This volume can expand to 1,714 litres when the rear seat is folded down.


The ID.7 Tourer features a low drag coefficient (Cd value) of 0.24, closely mirroring the aerodynamic efficiency of its sedan counterpart, the ID.7 limousine, which has a Cd value of 0.23. Aerodynamic design is a key factor in enhancing the vehicle’s range, and the ID.7 Tourer’s Cd value indicates a focus on this aspect.


The initial images of the ID.7 Tourer are presented in a unique “Indian summer” camouflage. This design choice for the camouflage foiling is based on the multi-layer paint used in the ID.7 limousine, as revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this year. The camouflage also incorporates QR codes at the rear, which are integrated into the overall design.


The ID.7 Tourer will be produced at Volkswagen’s manufacturing facility in Emden, Germany. This makes it the second MEB-based model to be manufactured at this location, following the ID.4. It will join Volkswagen’s lineup of electric vehicles next year in Europe and hopefully cross over the Pond to North America by the following year.
