Volkswagen ID.4 GTX SUV 2021 review – Has VW finally the X factor? / Electrifying

From Electrifying.

Click here to read our in-depth review of the Volkswagen ID.4:

Up to now there hasn’t been a sporty and practical everyday electric hatchback, and certainly not an SUV, but the Volkswagen ID.4 GTX might be it.

The GTX name will be used on VW’s sportiest electric vehicles, and the German carmaker hopes GTX will be to electric cars what GTI is to petrol cars – and that’s affordable, practical fun.

The ID.4 is the first car to get the GTX name and gets a second motor with an extra 101bhp in the front, making it all-wheel drive. The GTX’s total power output is just under 300bhp which allows it to get from 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds, and it has a slightly higher top speed of 112mph. And it gets some slightly more racy body styling.
