The Volkswagen ID.4 GTX is now available for UK customers to order, with prices starting at £48,510. The first wearer of the new GTX badge is available in two versions – GTX and GTX Max (£55,540 OTR).
Main difference between the two versions is that the former focuses on performance, with the latter offers a “comprehensive and compelling package of equipment”, according to the manufacturer. These are also the first ID. models to feature dual-motor all-wheel drives. Both offer the availability of 299 PS and 310 Nm of torque. 77 kWh battery capacity on the GTX and GTX Max allows the vehicles to travel up to 301 and 291 miles respectively (WLTP). The announcement closely follows the pricing for the “regular” ID.4 in the UK, which was announced just a few days ago.
The ID.4 GTX features a system output of 220 kW, and is able to drive up to 180 km/h and accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds. A permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) with 150 kW is installed on the rear axle, and an asynchronous machine (ASM) mounted on the front axle is switched on as required. VW says that the core of the drive concept is an intelligent control system that decides “how the available drive torque is distributed between the two electric motors in order to always achieve the respective optimum of efficiency, dynamics and driving stability”.
