Volkswagen is starting its performance series in the electric segment with the ID.4 GTX, similar to the Golf GTI. The lively SUV is equipped with an electric motor on each axle, making it the first model in the ID series with all-wheel drive. With a peak output of 220 kW or 299 hp, the ID.4 GTX sprints from 0 to 100 in 6.2 seconds. However, the top speed is limited to 180 km / h.
But reason comes first for Volkswagen, so the group advertises its new gem with the words: “Sporty like a GTI, comfortable like an SUV and sustainable like an ID.” In fact, the performance is remarkable, but not excessive given the weight of an SUV. The focus is on the good space in the interior, a lush trunk, as well as the high level of comfort that the normal ID.4 already offers. According to the list, the price is just over 50,000 euros. A little too much for the full innovation bonus. But 7,500 euros are still going away, leaving around 42,000 euros. With the new car comparison platform Carwow, prices can be easily compared.
