Volkswagen reveals ID.7 Tourer, adding one of the first estate cars into the EV mix


Despite the SUV signalling the end of an era for many now defunct body styles (MPVs and little sporty roadsters, we miss you), it appears that the estate car – or station wagon – could be having a comeback. Well, VW thinks so anyway.

The German marque has just lifted the lid on its latest ID.7 Tourer – a long-bodied station wagon that builds on its existing fastback saloon platform and bears all of the hallmarks of a classic estate with a twist of svelte shooting brake… albeit with electric underpinnings, rather than a dirty diesel or petrol engine lurking under the bonnet (or hood, y’all).

Despite Volvo (arguably the final word in estate cars) stating that it would no longer produce them, Volkswagen feels the ID.7 tourer neatly expands its electric portfolio, offering “generous space and long ranges”. We heartily agree.

Although the ID.7 Tourer has been teased before, we now know that there’s up to 605 litres of storage space with the rear seats intact and up to 1,714 litres when the rear seats are folded flat. VW is also keen to point out that in this haulage mode, the load area is almost two metres long.
