On April 28, 2021, the manufacturer unveiled the first GTX in the ID. family – 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 GTX.
The debut happened in Berlin in a hangar at the former Tempelhof Airport. The centrepiece of the event was a 525 m2 ramp with a gradient of 37.5%.
The vehicle easily climbed it thanks to its dual-motor all-wheel drive. The ramp served as the stage for a mixed reality (XR) installation.
The model is based on the MEB platform and offers attractive, high-quality design elements. Two motors deliver a total electrical output of 220 kW (299 hp) and work together as an electric all-wheel drive – the first-ever for the ID. family.
The vehicle accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h (37 mph) in 3.2 seconds, and from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 180 km/h (112 mph).
The full torque of the electric powertrain is immediately available. A unique augmented reality head-up display and assist systems support the driver.
The exterior of the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX features a light strip combined with dynamic three honeycomb elements forming the daytime running lights; new bumpers, 3D LED taillight cluster with brake lights that form an X. The roof and rear spoiler are black, while the roof frame bar is high-gloss anthracite.
The interior boasts a new colour scheme: a dark shade of X-Blue and contrasting red seams. A GTX logo appears on the steering wheel, sill panels, front seat backrests.
The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX will be launched in Europe this summer. Its German price starts at 50,415 euros. Customers will be able to apply for a (net) grant of 7,500 euros.
