Similar to the GTI and GTE, the GTX is a range-topping performance version of the Volkswagen ID.4 electric crossover. The carmaker will show it on April 28, 2021.
The respective ID. family’s hot models will wear the GTX nameplate in the future in Europe. The first vehicle of the GTX lineup to arrive is the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX: all-wheel-drive, emission-free, with sporty design details and an additional electric motor on the front axle.
The company claims that the motor switches on intelligently within a few milliseconds when very high performance or strong traction are required. Moreover, it is permanently activated in the new “Traction” driving mode.
Volkswagen has not officially confirmed the ID.4 GTX for the USA yet. In 2022, all-wheel-drive versions of the ID.4 will be available. So, the GTX model may well be among them.
The carmaker is ramping up production of the I.D cars. The I.D family already includes the ID.3 hatchback and ID.4 crossover. Expect a coupe-SUV ID.5 later this year.
A larger crossover – the Volkswagen ID.6 for the Chinese market – has been just unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show. It rides on the MEB platform and accommodates up to 7 people.
The vehicle is the most spacious model of the ID. family to date. It is available in four configurations, with a range between 436-588 km / 271-365 mi (China NEDC), an output up to 225 kW, standard MEB IQ.Drive systems, a choice of 58-kWh and 77-kWh batteries. The top 4MOTION version accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.6 seconds and achieves a top speed of 160 km/h (99.4 mph).
