When you drive thermally, the question you ask yourself is that of consumption, but with electric vehicles, it is autonomy that takes precedence. This is a crucial value, which tends to reassure or worry the potential buyer.

In this little game, sedans necessarily do better than SUVs, with a less aerodynamically advantageous format. If the Mercedes EQS is the current champion (783 km), it costs more than €100,000, where a Tesla Model 3 Highland offers 678 km of autonomy for less than €50,000 and a Hyundai Ioniq 6,614 km for €52,000.

The Volkswagen that makes everyone agree

Until now only available with a 77 kWh battery, Volkswagen's large electric sedan is finally available to order with a useful 86 kWh battery. It is offered on the top-of-the-range version, Pro S, very well equipped and better finished than a Model 3, and promises a remarkable WLTP range of 709 km. To achieve this result, it will be advisable to keep the small standard rims and not to buy the larger ones (optional).

So logically, the battery is bigger, which helps to cover a greater distance, but if we compare the WLTP ranges to the size of the batteries, the Volkswagen still does very well. A basic calculation gives us a consumption of 12.5 kWh/100 km for the Hyundai, with 229 hp and a 77 kWh battery, 12.1 kWh/100 km for the Volkswagen and 11.6 kWh/ 100 km for the Tesla (78.8 kWh battery), which nevertheless displays 462 hp.

But autonomy being the crux of the matter, Volkswagen scores a big blow with its ID.7 and this new 286 hp engine which is rather efficient, even in real use. However, if this power is not sufficient, there is the 340 hp GTX version, equipped with the same 86 kWh battery, but whose range drops to 595 km. Finally, the Pro S like the GTX exists in an estate version, called Tourer, with ranges of 690 and 585 km respectively.

And the price ?

Prices in France are not yet known, only those across the Rhine having been revealed for the moment. The Volkswagen ID.7 Pro S equipped with the 86 kWh battery and offering 709 km of WLTP range is sold from €58,895, while the Tourer version requires an additional financial effort of only €900.

These prices are lower than those charged in France for the 77 kWh battery models (€59,990 for the ID.7 Pro Life Max), which makes us think that the range is being reviewed and that the firm could take advantage of the launch of these long battery life versions to lower its prices.

As for the ID.7 GTX sedan, our German neighbors can get it for €63,155, barely more than the asking price for the base ID.7 when it was launched in France last year (€62,500). ), before prices do not fall for the first time.
