Volkswagen has revealed its first sporty electric car – the ID.4 GTX, which promises to bring ‘intelligent sportiness to the world of electric mobility’.
Launched as an addition to the ID.4 in Volkswagen’s new EV range, it’s the first outing for the GTX nameplate, which will be used for electric performance models in the same way that GTI features on sporty petrol models.
The ID.4 GTX features a dual electric motor setup, which allows for all-wheel-drive, with the combined result being 295bhp. Volkswagen says the model can go from 0-60mph in just six seconds and reach a top speed of 112mph. A 77kWh battery is also used, with Volkswagen claiming the model can travel for 298 miles on a single charge.

A range of different drive modes are available, while buyers can choose an optional sports package, which brings a lower suspension setup, progressive sports steering and DCC adaptive chassis control.
Ralf Brandstätter, CEO of Volkswagen, said: “Electric driving is simply great fun – and with the ID.4 GTX we are adding a new dimension of sportiness and dynamics. The most emotional member of the ID. family to date shows that electric mobility and top sporty performance are not mutually exclusive.”
The new ID.4 GTX is set to be launched in the summer, with pisces likely to start from around £50,000 – £10,000 more than the standard ID.4 SUV.Enquire on a new Volkswagen ID.4
