Powerful dual-motor drive with 411 kW (558 PS) and boost function. In the ID.X Performance show car, Volkswagen has supplemented the permanently excited synchronous motor on the rear axle with an additional asynchronous motor on the front axle to create an all-wheel drive. The advantages of this drive type are a short-time overload capability and particularly low drag losses. As a result, this motor type is ideal for delivering short-term power in the form of a boost function. The drive torque is controlled by a Vehicle Dynamics Manager, which also manages operation of the rear axle differential lock in the ID.X Performance. The function is controlled on a separate display with 17-centimetre screen diagonal in the centre console.
The energy of the dual-motor drive is supplied by the drive battery, which permits high continuous power output and short charging times with a charging capacity of up to 200 kW.
An electric fan community. Volkswagen is presenting the ID.X Performance at the international ID. Treffen, which is taking place in Locarno from 5 to 9 September. Electric vehicle enthusiasts are meeting on the Swiss side of Lago Maggiore to talk about their shared passion and take part in joint excursions. The meet is initiated and organised by ID. customers who are also members of the ID. Drivers Club. In 2023, it will set a new attendance record with more than 130 vehicles. The Volkswagen brand team will be present with a number of experts and will provide an insight into current developments in electric mobility. Alongside the ID.X Performance, Volkswagen is also presenting other models from the ID. family in Locarno. Volkswagen already excited the numerous electric vehicle fans last year when it presented the ID. XTREME and ID. Xcite show cars.
