The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX has been revealed along with the official confirmation that Volkswagen will use the exclusive GTX badging for the performance-oriented variants of ID models. The new model will be available at €50,415 (approximately Rs.45.40 lakh) in Germany, which is €6000 more than the standard Volkswagen ID.4 model.

The model will feature 20-inch alloy wheels, a 15mm lower ride height with a sportier steering rack, LED Matrix headlamps, blacked-out spoiler, heated steering wheel, ambient lighting and contrasting red stitching.

The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX has lived up to its ‘GTX’ badging as it uses an additional motor that produces a maximum power of 295bhp, instead of the standard single rear-mounted electric motor producing 201bhp power. The company has not revealed the exact torque figures yet. In order to denote the hard-core performance versions, Volkswagen may also introduce a ‘R’ badge as per reports.

The new ID.4 GTX takes just 6.2s to accelerate from 0-100km/h, i.e., 2.3s faster than the standard model. The GTX badging has been further justified as Volkswagen has increased its top speed from 160km/h to 180km/h.

The new Volkswagen model has a 300km range in just 30 minutes of charge. It comes with a 77kWh battery pack to store the electricity with a maximum charging rate of 125kW from a suitable fast charger. On a fully charged battery pack, the model can cover a maximum of 480km distance under the WLTP cycle, which is almost near to the 500km range of the standard ID.4 model.
