Volkswagen has launched four new and improved models in its top of the line ID.7 electric car range with longer-lasting batteries, including the dynamic GTX and the upgraded Pro S ranges.

The GTX and GTX Tourer are the most powerful electric vehicles currently available from Volkswagen, adding a sporty thrill to current models, while the Pro S and Pros Tourer add an upgraded 86kWh battery to the existing ID.7 Pro choices.

ID.7 GTX – €63,155

  • 0 – 100 km/h in 5.4 Seconds

  • 86kWh Battery Size

  • 595 km WTLP Range

  • Charge from 10-80% in 20 minutes

The all new ID.7 GTX is a fastback with a lot of kick in it. The 250 kW (340 PS) output and electric all-wheel drive car is the most powerful electric vehicle ever put on the market by Volkswagen. This power is delivered with extreme efficiency from the dual motors located on the front and rear axles.

The GTX is capable of long trips between charges, with its 86kWh battery giving it an WLTP range of up to 595 km, all of which can be rapidly recharged.

The ID.7 GTX’s battery can be charged with up to 200 kW at DC fast charging stations, able to go from 10% to 80% charge in just 26 minutes at its fastest.

Along with what’s under the hood, the GTX boasts a stylish look outside and in, with its distinctive front and rear design, the new 20-inch Skagen alloy wheels with diamond-cut surfaces, along with the chic interior with red contrasting topstitching on the seats and steering wheel and 30-colour ambient interior lighting.

Quality of life features include the heated seats, multifunction steering wheel, wireless App-Connect for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the augmented reality head-up display, the IDA voice assistant with integrated ChatGPT (AI/artificial intelligence), a two-zone automatic air conditioner, the keyless locking and starting system Keyless Access and an anti-theft alarm system.

Among the latest optional technologies is Park Assist Pro, which allows users to control parking procedures using their smartphone

GTX Tourer – €63,955

  • 0 – 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds

  • 86kWh Battery Size

  • 584 km WTLP Range

  • Charge from 10-80% in 26 minutes

Able to compete with the most powerful and long range estate cars made by Volkswagen, the GTX Tourer shares all the same technology as its fastback counterpart, with added space for comfort.

The biggest difference between the two is the Tourer’s capacity to hold 605 litres of luggage with five people on board, compared with the still impressive 532 litres maximum capacity of the Fastback.

With an added roof storage capacity of 75 kg, the GTX Tourer is well suited for any family making a long trip.

The new ID.7 GTX Tourer accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds. The WLTP range of the most powerful Volkswagen estate ever built is up to 584 km.

ID.7 Pro S (€58,985) & ID.7 Tourer Pro S (€59,785)

The ID.7 Pro S and Tourer Pro S mark a significant improvement in range and capability from the ID.7 Pro which has been available to date.

The new ID.7 Pro S versions – just like the new ID.7 GTX models – are now equipped with an 86kWh battery. This delivers a great range boost from the 77kWh battery which had been standard on the ID.7 to date.

Both models now feature incredible ranges, with the ID.7 Tourer Pro S able to reach up to 690 km, while the fastback model of the Pro S range is up to 709 km. This means that both ID.7 Pro S versions have entered the range spectrum of models with combustion engines.

In terms of equipment, the ID.7 Pro S and ID.7 Tourer Pro S take their lead from the Pro versions.
