Volkswagen ID.4 GTX

Volkswagen ID.4 GTX

Everyone recognises Volkswagen's iconic GTI badge denoting its performance models, but how does this translate to its electric equivalents? Step forward the GTX, soon hopefully to become iconic in its own right. The new Volkswagen ID.4 GTX is the high-performance version of its popular all-electric SUV, designed to inject a bit more thrill into electric motoring and channel some of the GTI's DNA. It has an intoxicating blend of power and acceleration to make it worthy of the badge, and an official 300-mile range between charges.

Performance

This is a GTX so you'll want to know about the performance first! The ID.4 GTX boasts 295bhp, ably assisted by twin electric motors which deliver that power to all four wheels, for impressive traction and road holding. Electric cars are renowned for their instant power and acceleration, and the ID.4 doesn't disappoint with its rapid 6.2-second sprint from 0-62mph. This happens in a near-silent, undramatic fashion that comes as a surprise to those driving an electric car for the first time. Top speed is limited to 112mph to protect the battery range, but that is more than enough for most occasions.

Interior Design

Like the rest of the ID. range, the ID.4 GTX has a minimalist and uncluttered interior. There are surprisingly few buttons, and most of the features are accessed via the prominent 12-inch infotainment screen in the centre of the dashboard. The occupants sit high up in comfortable and supportive GTX branded seats, and there are other discreet flashes of colour to mark the ID.4's performance credentials. The design of the interior feels spacious and modern, with a sweeping dashboard and a head-up display which gives the ID.4 a high tech edge.

Exterior Design

The ID.4 follows Volkswagen's new design language, with a modern, cutting-edge style about it. Similarly to the GTI tradition, the GTX is designed to be discreet, and somewhat of a wolf in sheep's clothing. The only real clues to its performance calibre are the 20" alloy wheels that are unique to the GTX, and the GTX badges on the front wings and beneath the Volkswagen logo on the boot lid. The headlights are all LED and there is an LED strip light running between them which is somewhat of a novelty. Otherwise, the ID.4 is big with chunky detailing, akin to other SUVs.

Practicality

The ID.4's large SUV body lends itself to plenty of practicality. It is roomy inside with plenty of space for a family of five to sit in comfort, including taller passengers. Volkswagen's MEB platform is flexible and allows for the batteries to be hidden beneath the boot floor, meaning that the boot is practical and usable. There are plenty of little cubbies and cup holders in the cabin to store those essentials. The rear seats have a 60:40 split and there is a ski hatch in the middle seat for longer items. You will find the ID.4 quite the practical companion.
