Volkswagen has already introduced a sporty GTX version of the ID.4 earlier this year, with the announcement that later GTX versions will be available for other electric models of this brand.

"The letters GT have long meant driving pleasure," explains Klaus Zellmer, a member of Volkswagen's marketing and sales committee. "Now the letter X is building a bridge for the mobility of the future."
Now comes the ID.5 GTX, which has two electric motors with a combined 200 kW / 299hp and all-wheel drive.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is 6.3 seconds, while top speed will be limited to 180 km / h.
