Volkswagen ID.4 GTX debuts with an extra front motor & sports suspension


Volkswagen has taken the wraps off the ID.4 GTX at a digital event held at the Berlin Tempelhof Airport. The ID.4 GTX is an all-wheel-drive variant of the rear-wheel-drive ID.4 that debuted last year. Prices in Germany start at €50,415, with customers being able to avail a govt grant of €7,500.

The GTX shouldn’t be confused with the China-exclusive ID.4 X; the latter is still a rear-wheel-drive model with subtle styling differences. The styling differences between the ID.4 and ID.4 GTX are subtle too, which include three honeycomb-shaped running lights on the front bumper, a sporty rear bumper, and a different 20-inch alloy wheel design. Also, the chrome-ish applique over the windows and the C-pillar has been darkened (high-gloss anthracite) for the GTX.

The cabin has been spiced up with blue leatherette inserts on the dashboard and door cards, GTX branding on the steering wheel and seats, and of course, red contrast stitching on the dashboard and fabric seat upholstery. The GTX also boasts progressive steering and sports suspension with stiffer springs and stabilizers that are claimed to ensure a fun driving experience.

As mentioned, the ID.4 GTX is an all-wheel-drive vehicle with two motors, one at each axle, offering a combined output of 220 kW (299 metric hp), which is slightly less compared to the Skoda Enyaq iV RS. The 82 kWh (77 kWh net) battery pack is claimed to offer a range between 340-480 km (211-298 mi). Unlike the RWD ID.4 base model, there’s no 55 kWh (52 kWh net) battery pack option. A 30-minute fast-charging is claimed to offer a range of up to 300 km (186 mi).

The ID.4 GTX also claims a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 6.2 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph), should such things interest you.
