Volkswagen Teases Sporty ID.7 GTX Sedan With AWD

Teaser / 4 Comments

The electric performance sedan will be unveiled at IAA Mobility in Munich this September.

Just three weeks after revealing the sleek ID.7 electric sedan, Volkswagen has released teaser images of the forthcoming GTX variant, which will be unveiled at IAA Mobility in Munich this September.

This isn't just a styling package, with VW promising serious performance capabilities. The ID.7 GTX will be powered by dual motors that channel power to all four wheels. Considering the ID.7 utilizes a new generation of electric motors with 282 hp and 402 lb-ft in single-motor form, we can expect well over 350 hp from the GTX variant. In the ID.4, the GTX variant gets an extra 94 hp (the US gets the same AWD powertrain without the GTX aesthetic elements), so the ID.7 GTX will get at least this much, if not more, of a bump compared to the regular model.

The exterior will benefit from some sporting touches not seen on the regular model. Below, we can see the black gloss exterior finishes and GTX badging, which works nicely with the sporty red paintwork.


ID.7 GTX won't just be faster in a straight line. The in-house developed software will manage various aspects of the car, including the chassis, steering, brakes, and dual-motor all-wheel-drive system. Volkswagen's spirited performance sedan (or liftback) will arrive with distinctive driving profiles, which will change the vehicle's characteristics. The steering and running gear have also been revised to provide a blend of comfort and athleticism

Volkswagen says the ID.7 will also boast a black-painted roof and tinted windows to underscore the GTX's athletic persona. Inside, we can look forward to red contrast stitching on several surfaces, including the dash, seats, and door cards.

If you're wondering what GTX is exactly, consider it the electric version of the hallowed GTI brand. The GTX nomenclature is applied only to the hottest electric VWs, which receive an array of special touches and, as mentioned, more performance.


The ID.7 isn't the only Volkswagen that will get the GTX treatment. Last year, a leaked internal document from the German giant uncovered the imminent arrival of an ID. Buzz GTX. VW later confirmed this, with the company announcing the high-performance minivan with all-wheel drive and 335 hp.

While that's exciting, enthusiasts will probably be most excited to get their hands on the hotted-up ID. 2all, which is rumored to spawn a GTX variant. With front-wheel drive, a compact body shell, and sensible pricing, the sporty ID. 2all could be the Mk1 Golf GTI, reincarnated in electric form.

Getting back to the ID.7 GTX, the performance sedan will have to battle the Tesla Model 3 Performance and the BMW i4, both of which are dazzling EVs in their own right. Let's see if it has what it takes to play in this segment.
