Every VW ID model we’ve tried thus far has disappointed somewhat in terms of cabin design, material quality and infotainment, but the German company has been busy taking on board customer feedback from those earlier efforts, it seems.

Slotting into the top of Wolfsburg’s electric range, the ID.7 makes total sense for consumers, and its lack of direct competition highlights just how lopsided the EV market is right now. But there are issues – take a look around the new flagship, and you’ll find it fixes a lot of mistakes seen on the rest of the ID range.
