Volkswagen is gearing up to electrify its lineup by 2025, when around 20 new electric models will be launched. And the company is doing well to realize its plans – last week we saw the three-row VW ID.6 in Shanghai, now it’s time to see the “charged” version of the VW ID.4 crossover.
The automaker teases again with a video teaser of the future ID.4 posted on Twitter, revealing some minor details about the crossover. So, the video begins with a review of the ID.4 GTX optics, which, of course, does not differ from the base VW ID.4. We then move on to the taillights (again, the same as the ID.4), which show a bizarre sequential effect when starting the car.
The image then goes down to the bumper’s air intakes and then goes inside to reveal the red-stitched leather, presumably found on the GTX dashboard. Finally, the short 15-second footage ended with a full view of the 3D taillights.
The teaser also indicates the combined power consumption of the ID.4 GTX: from 19.8 to 18.1 kilowatt-hours per 100 kilometers. For comparison, the usual ID.4 consumed one and a half times less.
We’ve known some details about ID.4 GTX for a long time. So, the power reserve of the novelty will be much less than that of the standard model, but it will be more powerful and will receive all-wheel drive. It is expected that the electric car will take up to 6.2 seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h, which is 2.3 seconds faster than the regular ID.4.
