“The ID.4 GTX is our first all-electric high-performance model under the GTX label,” says Klaus Zellmer, Board Member for Sales, Marketing and After Sales at the Volkswagen brand. “It offers practical good sense combined with driving pleasure. The ID.4 GTX is as sporty as a GTI, as comfortable as an SUV and as sustainable as the other members of the ID. family. And with the GTX we are once more accelerating our ‘Way to Zero’ – to make Volkswagen net carbon-neutral by 2050.”
In Europe, the high-performance models of the ID. family will bear the designation GTX in future. Like with GTI and GTE, this stands for an independent product brand. With GTX, Volkswagen is charging the world of electric mobility with new, intelligent sportiness that combines performance and sustainability.
All-wheel drive in the ID. family for the first time
The battery of the ID.4 GTX has a net energy content of 77 kWh, enough for a customer-oriented range of 340 to 480 kilometres. With a maximum charging capacity of 125 kW, the battery can be recharged quickly. Two electric drive motors, one each on the front and rear axles, jointly deliver a maximum output of 220 kW (299 PS) and can work together as an electric all-wheel drive – a premiere for the models of the ID. family. The flagship model in the ID.4 product line accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h in 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds. The vehicle’s top speed is electronically limited to 180 km/h.
The standard Vehicle Dynamics Manager connects the optional adaptive chassis control with the XDS electronic axle differential lock and manages their interaction with maximum precision. It also works closely with the all-wheel drive control as well as the braking control system. This ensures that driving dynamics and stability reach the best possible level in every situation.
