Volkswagen recently unveiled its newest electric vehicle, the ID.7 Sedan, with plans to bring the car to Canada by 2024.
The ID.7 will be the German car manufacturer’s first all-electric vehicle in the upper-middle class and the company’s third fully electric passenger vehicle to come to the Canadian market, following the ID.4 SUV in 2021.
Volkswagen has also confirmed that the North American version of the sedan will be manufactured at the Volkswagen Emden plant in Emden, Germany.
The all-electric car will launch in China and Europe later this year in two versions, the Pro S trim with an 86 kWh battery and the Pro trim with a 77 kWh battery. The Pro S houses a motor that can go up to 200 kW, and the Pro trim can fast charge up to 170 kW.

Both trims offer 282 horsepower, with the Pro S having a superior range of around 700 kilometres compared to the Pro’s projected range of 615 km. The company says the ID.7 is “suitable for long-distance travelling and fleet customers.”
Apart from having two different trim levels, the ID.7 hosts some exciting features for an all-electric, including a panoramic sunroof that can switch from opaque to transparent glass via touch or voice command.
Additionally, the sedan comes with an improved version of Volkswagen’s Travel Assist system for hands-free driving. It now features ‘Swarm data’ to better predict objects around the vehicle.
Combined with lane change assistance and Park Assist Pro, now with an adaptive memory function, the ID.7 is loaded with technology-infused features.
Volkswagen ID.7 marks another EV from the company, with the car being the sixth fully electric vehicle to join its zero-emission lineup.
Although there are currently no pricing options for the sedan, the model is set to arrive in Canada in the back half of 2024.
In addition to the ID.7, Canadians will be introduced to Volkswagen’s all-electric microbus, the ID. Buzz in 2024.
