In terms of the technical differences between the models, the new ID.7 Pro S Match models have an 86 kWh battery, compared with the 77 kWh battery in the ID.7 Match versions. The larger battery can support a WLTP range of 437 miles for the fastback and 425 miles for the Tourer. The Pro S Match models can also be charged at up to 200 kW DC, meaning a top-up from 10 to 80 per cent of battery capacity can take as little as 26 minutes. To compare, the ID.7 Pro S has a WLTP range of 709 kilometres on the 86-kWh battery variant.

In terms of comfort, Volkswagen has also improved the ID.7, introducing “Volkswagen’s latest MIB4 infotainment software with 15-inch screen; sophisticated IQ.LIGHT Matrix headlights; three-zone air conditioning with smart vents; comfortable ergoActive heated front seats with massage functions; and privacy glass in the rear.” For storage space, the ID.7 variants feature up to 1,586 and 1,714 litres of storage respectively in the fastback and Tourer, when loaded to the roofline with the rear seats down.

The same battery was introduced with the sporty ID.7 GTX model in June, which then also officially introduced the battery to all ID.7 variants. Customers in the US, who are waiting on the ID.7 will still have to continue to wait, as it remains unclear whether VW will release the vehicle in North America.

According to the German manufacturer, the ID.7 Pro S Match and ID.7 Tourer Pro S Match variants can be ordered immediately from Volkswagen Retailers, with prices starting at £55,450 and £56,140 (OTR recommended prices inc. VAT).
