For the first time in tests, the electric crossover VW ID.4 GTX was noticedApril 30, 2020
On the web there were photos from the tests of the German crossover VW ID.4 in a more powerful performance of GTX. The test car received several aggressive body changes. The presentation will take place next year.
At the end of last year, we reported that VW planned to introduce more productive versions for all of their future electric vehicles, the I.D. family, which would receive the GTX suffix to the name. Now we have photos from the ID.4 crossover tests and I must say that these are the first pictures of the VW ID.4 GTX.
Unfortunately, we have only a few photos of the German novelty, shot on the phone’s camera and showing only the back of the long-awaited prototype. Nevertheless, we can easily see the similarity of this car with the previously presented ID.4. More importantly, we can see several key differences that suggest that this is exactly the prototype of the high-performance ID.4 GTX.
The obvious difference is the rear spoiler located at the base of the rear window.
Take a closer look and you will see that the roof and C-pillar are also different – in the ID.4 photographs that we have seen so far, the roof is shorter, while this prototype “leans” to its rear. C-shaped stand also looks thinner. The car received fake exhaust pipes – for some reason. We suspect that this is actually just camouflage film covering the design, which will be different from the real one.
We know that the standard ID.4 crossover will be offered with both one and two electric motors, providing an electric car with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It can be assumed that in the high-performance version of the GTX will be offered only four-wheel drive.
The previously introduced ID Crozz crossover concept had a total power of 302 horsepower. However, if VW hopes to compete with the more productive variants of the American Tesla Model Y SUV or the upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E, it will need to offer a bit more power.
It is believed that VW will introduce the usual ID.4 by the end of 2020, so a model with more power can only be shown in 2021.
