Volkswagen delays introduction of ID. 7 electric sedan in North America

Volkswagen announced it will delay the introduction of the ID.7 electric sedan (earlier post) in the US and Canada in response to changing market dynamics.

Volkswagen had announced in March that ID.7 would be offered stateside in two trims—Pro S and Pro S Plus—with an 82 kWh battery and 282 horsepower and 402 pound-feet of torque on rear-wheel drive models; all-wheel-drive models will have maximum horsepower of 335. Range and pricing were to be announced closer to launch in Q3.

In Europe, the ID.7 has been on sale since 2023 and has won various international awards and comparison tests. After the introduction of the ID.7 Tourer, customer demand for the models is higher than expected, especially in Germany, Volkswagen said.

But in North America, the Volkswagen brand experienced strong sales in Q1, with 27.5% growth, driven by its SUV segment. The company said it remains committed to electric mobility; Volkswagen this year enhanced the range and performance of the all-electric 2024 ID.4 SUV, and is welcoming the iconic Microbus back into the lineup with the arrival of the 2025 ID. Buzz in Q4.
