Volkswagen will be showing its first sporty top-of-the-range electric model on 28 April with the new ID.4 GTX. In Europe, the respective performance models of the ID. family will wear the logo GTX in the future. Similar to GTI and GTE, it stands for its own product brand and it charges the world of electric mobility from Volkswagen with new, intelligent sportiness.
Klaus Zellmer, board member for marketing and sales at VW, said: “The letters GT have long stood for driving pleasure. Now the X is building the bridge to the mobility of the future. Sustainability and sportiness are not mutually exclusive, but complement each other intelligently.”
The GTX models are particularly impressive when it comes to performance and design. An additional electric motor on the front axle brings the all-wheel-drive into the ID. family designed for maximum efficiency.
The additional motor switches on intelligently within a few milliseconds when very high performance or strong traction are required. In the new “Traction” driving mode, it is even permanently activated. In addition, sporty design details and their own light signature underline the top performance of the GTX models.
The new product brand for the ID. Family gives Volkswagen’s ACCELERATE corporate strategy a further boost. The German automaker wants to become the most desired brand for sustainable mobility. The goal is to increase the share of pure electric cars in Europe to 70 percent of sales by 2030.
