The new air conditioning system has smart air valves that can do many intelligent things. For example, the Volkswagen ID7 can tell when the driver is coming up with the key and start cooling or heating the passenger area before the passengers even get in the car. The system can also change based on where the sun is in the sky.
The air conditioning system is an essential part of modern cars. It keeps the electric vehicle at a comfortable temperature all year long. Volkswagen takes it one step further with the new ID7, which uses an air conditioning system for the first time that cools or heats the passenger area faster before the trip starts.
This is possible because the air valves in the passenger area are controlled electronically. As soon as the driver approaches with the key, the air in the passenger area is spread out. The new automatic climate control system is intelligent and can be controlled by voice commands. It also considers where the sun is and what the user wants. The result is more comfort, which raises the bar for the class.
In early January, Volkswagen showed a concept car of the new ID7 for the first time at CES in Las Vegas. The electric car was covered up, but you could still see what it looked like.
Volkswagen board member Kai Grünitz, who is in charge of development, says that the Volkswagen ID7 shows how important it is to the company to offer innovative technology and customer-focused innovations in the upper middle class of the high-volume segment.
Volkswagen ID7 can turn on the car's air conditioning before people enter. On hot days, the cabin is cooled down, and on cold days, it is warmed up. If you open the door when it's hot outside, the intelligent air vents in the passenger area quickly spread the air over a large area by moving horizontally.
When the passengers are sitting in the car, the airflow can go directly to the body or indirectly cool the passenger compartment, depending on what the passenger wants. The ID7 is the first Volkswagen car to have a control system that is this smart.
