The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX fully electric SUV revelead at Tempelhof airport in Berlin

 


At the digital premiere at Tempelhof Airport in Berlin, Volkswagen revealed the first high-performance model in the ID family: the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX fully electric SUV. This new top model combines a distinctly sporty driving experience with e-mobility and is the first model on the MEB (modular electric-drive toolkit) platform to come with two electric motors and a four-wheel drive.

 

ID.4 GTX has two electric motors, one built into the front axle and one at the rear axle, and together provide a maximum of 220 kW (299 hp). When both engines are running, they work together like an electric four-wheel drive, which is a novelty in the ID family. At the premiere at the Tempelhof airport in Berlin, the new Volkswagen ID.4 GTX electric SUV was able to show what it is capable of with its electric four-wheel drive. The second electric motor is engaged in milliseconds when high engine power and traction are needed. In the new "Traction" driving profile, it is permanently activated.

 


Thanks to dual-engine four-wheel drive, the ID top model can accelerate from 0 to 60 km / h in just 3.2 seconds and 0 to 100 km / h in 6.2 sec. GTX's top speed is electronically limited to 180 km / h.

 

The design of the ID.4 GTX emphasizes the sporty character of the model and combines visual dynamics with the rugged look of the SUV. The well-known LED light strip is combined with powerful dynamic elements such as the front bumper with the high-gloss black cooling air intake and the three LED daytime running lights stacked on top of each other. The ID.4 GTX has an understated sporty look, even when stationary. At the rear, the ID.4 GTX is decorated with LED taillights with a 3D effect and brake lights that have the shape of an X when the brakes are activated.

 

The normally black side panels at the bottom of the doors are on GTX lacquered in the body colour, while the roof and roof spoiler are black. The interior also offers a new colour scheme. The upper section of the instrument panel and door sides is in a dark shade of blue, representing sustainability. Red contrast stitching gives the seats extra character and elegance. The GTX logo appears on the multifunctional steering wheel, doorsteps and at the top of the front seat backrests.

 

The new Volkswagen ID.4 GTX will be available in June, and its price will start at 55,000 euros.

 


Like the GTI and GTE, the new GTX classification stands for a standalone product that charges Volkswagen's electric model offensive with sport and performance. The new GTX model gives the brand's ACCELERATE strategy an extra boost. Volkswagen aims to develop into the most sought-after brand in sustainable mobility. The main goal is to increase the share of electric cars in Europe to account for at least 70% of Volkswagen's total sales by 2030. Volkswagen will be climate neutral by 2050 and will invest around 16 billion euros in e-mobility, hybrid technology and digitalisation by 2025.
