The new Magotan is on sale! Bigger, longer and more luxurious, tens of thousands cheaper, or a big hatchback
It is difficult for the current Passat and Volkswagen Magotan to arouse the interest of consumers, because the possibility of subversive upgrades for the two new cars is not very large, and it is unlikely that there will be much change in the powertrain or exterior and interior design. The two new cars have been sold in China for more than a decade, and consumers are indeed suffering from aesthetic fatigue, and with the advent of electrification, the Magotan and Passat have loomed into sales problems. So in the electric era, where should Volkswagen Magotan and Passat go? No, Volkswagen has given the answer.
RECENTLY, A NEW MODEL BEGAN TO BE PRE-SOLD, AND IT IS THE VOLKSWAGEN ID.7 VIZZION, WITH A PRE-SALE PRICE OF 237,777. The new car is an all-electric mid-size car, which we can understand as the electric version of the Magotan era, competing with the BYD Han and the Tesla Model 3. After all, in the mid-range segment, these two new cars are the best sellers.
Volkswagen ID.7 VIZZION's exterior design did not make us shine, the continuation is still the style of the Volkswagen ID family, the overall use of extremely smooth and concise design language, the front of the car has through-type lamp beads, but also equipped with intelligent IQ headlights, this headlight is very technological, because it can be DIY, and can also achieve intelligent lighting.
The side features hidden door handles with a better sense of detail, 18-inch low-drag wheels, and black piano paint on the side lip. ONE THING TO SAY, WE FOUND THAT THE REAR WHEEL BRAKES OF THIS VOLKSWAGEN ID.7 VIZZION ACTUALLY USE DRUM BRAKES, I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS CONFIGURATION APPEARED, THIS IS THE CONFIGURATION ON THE LOW-END MODELS MORE THAN TEN YEARS AGO, SO THIS CONFIGURATION IS DEFINITELY SPECIAL POINTS. But I also have a bold prediction, that is, the new car will have obvious room for concession in the future.
The rear design is similar to that of most new cars, with through-light beads and illuminated logos. The body data part, because this is a new car under the pure electric platform, the body data is indeed overstepping, the length, width and height are 4956/1862/1537mm, and the wheelbase is 2965mm, which is 90mm longer than the Volkswagen Tesla Model 3.
At present, the interior design of this Volkswagen ID.7 VIZZION has also been exposed, and the modern and concise design language used in the same way as other Volkswagen ID series is matched, with a 15-inch floating central control screen, a built-in full LCD trip computer screen, and even a color HUD digital head-up display function, full of scientific and technological configuration. Due to the small size of the driving computer screen, most of the functions such as intelligent assisted driving, vehicle speed, and battery life can be presented on the front windshield.
The power system is divided into two types, one is a long-range version composed of a single motor and a ternary lithium battery, and the other is a four-wheel drive model with two front and rear motors, focusing on performance, and the maximum pure electric range of the new car exceeds 640km.
Looking at the whole new car, we can feel that this is a considerable breakthrough for Volkswagen, but the price estimate of close to 240,000 is difficult for consumers to pay. Of course, manufacturers may also take these factors into account and reduce some configurations in advance, laying the groundwork for later price reductions.
