Volkswagen wants to deliver great performance to those UK clients who want a fast electric car. The ID.4 GTX and GTX Max are the first models in the new all-electric GTX performance range, as well as the first ID. models with dual-motor all-wheel drive.

Both ID.4 GTX models have 299 PS and 310 Nm of torque, which contributes to excellent performance – the GTX versions accelerate to 62 mph from a standstill in 6.2 seconds, which is faster than the Golf GTI. The ID.4 GTX also has a top speed of 112 mph, which is 13 mph faster than the standard model.

Along with the standard Vehicle Dynamics Manager and XDS electronic differential lock, this dynamic drivetrain is supplemented with sports suspension and progressive steering systems, both of which improve the handling of the ID.4. The GTX models come standard with the Sport Package, which includes the sports suspension, while the GTX Max comes standard with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) adaptive dampers.

The GTX and GTX Max, which share the same 77 kWh battery as the ID.4 Pro Performance versions, can travel up to 301 and 291 miles (WLTP, combined) on a single charge. A 125 kW rapid charger can add up to 199 miles of range in 30 minutes, whereas a 7.2 kW home charger takes about 12 hours and 40 minutes to charge the battery from 0 to 100 percent. Charging from a DC, CCS charge point to 80% takes 38 minutes.

The ID.4 GTX includes the 12-inch Discover Max infotainment display as standard, along with the Augmented Reality Head-Up Display (Infotainment Package Plus); a rear-view camera and keyless locking and starting system (Assistance Package); IQ.Light LED Matrix headlights and 3D LED tail lights with dynamic turn signal, as well as an illuminated LED strip between the headlights and Volkswagen badge (Design Package). Finally, the Sport Package adds progressive steering for a more exciting driving as well as lowered sports suspension.

The Design Package Plus has a panoramic sunroof, while the Sport Package Plus includes the Dynamic Chassis Control adaptive damper system, as well as the efficiency-boosting heat pump as standard. Both models benefit from the innovative ID.Light – an animated LED strip at the base of the windscreen that facilitates communication between the car and the driver for navigation, phone connectivity, and safety features, as well as Car2X technology. This technology can alert the driver to oncoming risks such as Car2X-equipped emergency vehicles, stopped traffic ahead, or dangers. It communicates this information with other Car2X-equipped vehicles in the area in order to offer other drivers with early notice of dangerous circumstances, resulting in increased safety.

The ID.4 GTX costs £48,510 and the ID.4 GTX Max costs £55,540.
