Volkswagen has recently confirmed that next week, it’ll be launching its first sporty electric car with the GTX badge. The ID.4 GTX SUV will be announced next week on 28th April and will be all wheel drive and house two motors and have around 300bhp.

The ID.4 will also be the first ID model VW sells to be all wheel drive with it being predominantly rear wheel drive with power being sent to the front when it is needed. The ID.4 GTX will also have a permanent all wheel drive mode called ‘Traction’. The car will also sit lower that the standard ID.4 but at this time it is unknown what Volkswagen will do with the interior, as on GTI, GTD and GTE models the company has opted for tartan seats to differentiate the cars.

“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.”

Klaus Zellmer – Head of marketing for VW
