VOLKSWAGEN is expanding its range of ID.7 models with a new ID.7 GTX- a fastback with 340ps output and electric all-wheel drive that sits alongside the ID.7 GTX Tourer that was unveiled earlier this year.

Also coming soon are a rear-wheel-drive ID.7 Pro S2and ID.7 Tourer Pro S5that develop a maximum output of 286ps and a range claimed to be almost 450 miles.

All four new ID.7 versions are equipped with an 86-kWh battery.

Alongside the ID.7 GTX Tourer, the new ID.7 GTX is currently the most powerful electric vehicle from Volkswagen.

It powers from a standstill to 62mph in just 5.4 seconds and has an electric dual-motor all-wheel drive with an electric motor on the front and rear axles and a fully charged range of up to 371 miles.

Recharging from 10 to 80 per cent can be done in 26 minutes, VW claims.

Exterior features include 20-inch alloy wheels with diamond-cut surfaces and the IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights with illuminated Volkswagen logos at the front and rear.

The interior features heated seats with red contrasting topstitching and perforated GTX lettering on the backrests. Another GTX-specific feature is the multi-function steering wheel with a red centre panel and red topstitching.

Other standard equipment includes wireless App-Connect for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the augmented reality head-up display, an IDA voice assistant with integrated ChatGPT, 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 a parking system which allows users to control parking procedures using a smartphone.

The new ID.7 GTX Tourer is identical to the GTX fastback in terms of its technology but the two versions differ when it comes to their luggage compartments.

While the ID.7 GTX Tourer can hold up to 605 litres of luggage with five people on board, the ID.7 GTX fastback has a maximum luggage compartment capacity of 532 litres.

The new ID.7 GTX Tourer accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 5.5 seconds with a range of up to 365 miles.

Until now, the ID.7 models have been available exclusively as Pro versions with a 77-kWh battery on board.

Prices and UK specifications are still to be announced.
