The New Volkswagen ID.7 GTX electric car lease - Your Definitive Guide

With Sir Keir Starmer now at the helm of the UK, we have been promised a big 100 days of activity from the new Labour Government. With MPs due to be sworn in on Tuesday (9 July 2024), a hive of activity is set to follow including the September / October budget.

And many of us are eagerly awaiting the confirmation on certain manifesto promises and proposed plans for the UK’s automotive industry. As we have already set out in some of our previous electric car guides, Labour made automotive a key aspect of their political agenda. In particular, the electric vehicle industry did get some attention with key aspects discussed like:

  •  Standardised battery certificates for used electric cars;
  •  Binding targets for charge point installation / improved planning approval times;
  •  Manage motor insurance costs;
  •  Reinstate the 2030 ban on petrol / diesel production for new cars (push forward the 2035 agenda); and
  •  Engage in a long-term strategic approach with China.

Moving Britain into new, and used, electric cars will be no small effort. Even now, at nearly 10 years in, we are still incurring hurdles and disruptions which are making the transition anything other than seamless. But with a plethora of great businesses involved in this sector, in various guises, the good news is that we are experiencing some improvements.

More ultra-rapid and rapid chargers, more used-EV leasing and purchase programmes, more specialist motor insurance and a greater variety of vehicles for the UK customer to choose from.

Getting “it right” is no easy task. As the BBC  reported last week  the EU have been at loggerheads with China in relation to their cheaper, and arguably superior, electric vehicle product. Many EU companies and member states took issue with the perceived threats which the Chinese car and battery companies pose, leading to some fairly significant changes.

While a 10% duty was already in place for EV imports, additional tariffs of between 17% and 37% have now been imposed, to address what the EU believe is unfair subsidisation by the Chinese Government. However, not every brand has been treated equally within these new measures, with elements like cooperation and state funding being considered in conjunction with the tariffs applied. For example, BYD will incur a 17.4% tariff compared to the 37.6% for SAIC (who make the MG4 / MG5 and MG ZS).

As can be expected, there are many who are not supporting these seismic alterations to trade, which alongside the recent US decision to place huge tariffs on Chinese goods, have placed global trade into a period of uncertainty. As the BBC reported, the director-general of the WTO (World Trade Organisation) has spoken out on the protectionist policies and move away from a free-trade world economy.

With vehicles, batteries and energy so crucial to the success of the EV transition, it is essential that countries are prepared for the demands these facets place. If Labour are to end the sale of new petrol and diesel options in the UK by 2030, then we have just under 6 years to ensure our economic and political regimes are robust enough to manage this.

Working with other nations, like China, may be essential for us to meet these lofty ambitions. The Chinese auto industry is not taking the decision by the US and now the EU lying down. As reported in the Global Times  there will be a series of talks to help rectify what they see as “damaging and distorting”.

One manufacturer which has perhaps not been overly content with the above is the Volkswagen Group. Since 1984, the VW team have been working in collaboration with SAIC motors. Only last month (June 2024), the two companies signed energy technology cooperation agreements, as part of launching new plug-in and pure electric models.

And in an effort to ensure their product maintains its stylish and sporty reputation, the VW team have brought a GTX version to their ID.7 fastback. For the exterior, the new 20” Skagen alloys will be supplemented with the IQ.Light LED lights, illuminated VW logos on front and rear plus some distinctive GTX styling and aesthetics.

Inside this includes heated seats, GTX lettering on seats, multifunction steering wheel, augmented reality HUD, 30-colour ambient lighting, keyless access and 2-zone air conditioning. Other key tech includes the Park Assist Pro and the anti-theft alarm system.

But how does the new ID.7 GTX perform? Is it a good EV?

GTX - (from £59,000) this has a usable battery of 86 kWh which offers 250kW (335hp), top speeds of 112 mph and 0-62 times of 5.4 seconds. Real-world ranges suggest a combined 245 miles in colder weather with warmer temperatures to allow for 335 miles (on a full charge) - a combined 295 miles.
