Volkswagen to display the ID.7 electric sedan at CES 2023.

After a six-year break, Volkswagen Group of America is returning to the CES with its first fully electric sedan ID.7.

Volkswagen is all set to showcase its first fully electric sedan ID.7 at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas between 5 and 8 January 2023. It will be clad in smart camouflage, which uses unique technology and multi-layered paintwork to create light effects on parts of the vehicle. This is an interactive feature and symbolizes the next step in the digitalization of the future flagship model of the ID. family.

ID.7 is based on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). ID.7 will come standard with a host of features like the new display concept, augmented reality head-up display, a 38-centimeter (15-inch) screen, new air conditioning controls integrated into the first level of the infotainment system, illuminated touch sliders, etc.

The new air conditioning concept with intelligent vents offers a number of functions. For instance, ID.7 can detect when the driver is approaching based on their key and will already start to cool the interior on hot summer days or heat the interior on cold days before the driver gets into the vehicle.

Newly designed “Smart Air Vents” control the flow of air and move dynamically to distribute the air over large areas as quickly as possible. If there are passengers in the car, the air can be directed straight to the body or ventilate the interior indirectly. These functions are visible at all times on the new large display and can be activated and saved individually for each user.

Special requests can be activated using voice commands. If the user says “Hello Volkswagen, my hands are cold!”, the ID.7 responds by starting the steering wheel heating function. At the same time, warm air is directed toward the hands.

Like all other models in the ID. family, the ID.7 is based on the MEB of the Volkswagen Group. The advantages of the modular matrix with short overhangs and long wheelbase (2.97 meters) provide benefits for the interior. In ID.7, this results in the character of a luxury sedan with an especially spacious feel. The range of the car is up to around 700 kilometers (WLTP).

After the ID.3, ID.4, ID.5, and ID.6 (only in China) models and the new ID. Buzz, the ID.7 will be the sixth model from the ID. family and is Volkswagen’s second global car to be based on the MEB after the ID.4. The company will launch the electric sedan in the three primary markets of China, Europe, and North America. The ID.7 for the European market will be produced at the Volkswagen Emden plant.
