With the announcement of the all-wheel-drive GTX model, Volkswagen’s ID4 series has received a performance boost. Here you can find out more about the sporty electric SUV.
- VW ID.4 GTX presented

The Volkswagen ID.4 will soon be available as a faster, twin-engine GTX model – the first in a line of sporty VW electric cars. This new all-wheel performance variant is the next step in what Volkswagen calls “intelligent sportiness” – a plan that will include other sporty versions of the VW electric car range.
Exterior design and technical data
The ID.4 GTX looks sportier than the standard ID.4. It is a sporty all-rounder that is easy to drive. Thanks to a ground clearance of 17 centimeters, it can also be moved in easy terrain. Its look is very modern and confident. The black ventilation grilles, which have been given a high-gloss finish, are striking. The narrow inlets on the outside have integrated three LEDs, one on top of the other. This light signature is particularly evident at night.
The IDl.4 GTX is also equipped with LED matrix headlights as standard, which look like a human eye thanks to the modules attached to the side.
The rear also shows its best side. There are new 3D LED taillights installed, the brake light shines in an X shape and a dynamic turn signal is also available. The trim strip between the rear lights continues the light signature.
The GTX model can also be recognized by the fact that the strips on the doors are painted in the color of the vehicle and the attachments in the lower area have been given a black color. The roof and the rear spoiler are also kept in a sporty black. The lettering GTX can be found on the rear under the VW logo.
We think it’s great that the ID.4 GTX has a trailer load of 1,200 kilograms – that’s still not a matter of course for electric cars.
VW ID.4 GTX: interior
There will also be space in the sporty ID.4 because the wheelbase is 2.77 meters, which allows for a completely new floor plan. As in the classic ID.4, there is also the floating instrument panel here. The interior has a new color concept to emphasize the character of the GTX.
It should be sporty and elegant, which is achieved with artificial leather inserts, red contrasting seams, and shiny black. The GTX logo can be seen on the steering wheel and seats.
There is also ambient lighting and a heated steering wheel. Vegan seats in fabric with red stitching and synthetic leather applications show that VW pays attention to sustainability. If you want it even more sporty, you can optionally order the top sports seats with high cheeks and integrated headrests – and these are also free of animal materials and are made of artificial leather and ArtVelours.
The infotainment package with the Discover Pro navigation system is on board as standard. If you choose the “Plus” infotainment package, you also get the augmented reality head-up display. The “Plus” assistance package includes a reversing camera, proactive occupant protection, the anti-theft alarm system, and Travel Assist.
Engines and driving behavior
The current Volkswagen ID.4 is offered with a 77 kWh battery pack, the electric motor with 204 hp drives the rear wheels. With this combination, the ID.4 manages the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.5 seconds and a range of 500 kilometers.
The GTX will have an additional electric motor that drives the front wheels and is automatically activated when more power is required. In addition, a new “Traction” driving mode is introduced, which leaves the front-axle motor permanently switched on. The GTX has a total of 299 hp and accelerates from zero to 100 m / h in 6.2 seconds. The maximum speed is 180 km / h.
The GTX’s battery has 77 kWh, which means that the Sport-ID.4 can travel around 480 kilometers. You can charge at a fast-charging station with up to 125 kW charging power, but of course also at an 11 kW wall box.
That doesn’t make the ID.4 GTX the fastest electric car on the market, but it’s a big improvement over the standard car and should be enough for sporty driving needs.
