The Volkswagen ID.7 will Gain a Sportier GTX Version in September

The Volkswagen ID.7 GTX will be a sportier version of the brand's new electric sedan.

  • Volkswagen will unveil this version of its new electric sedan at the Munich Motor Show.

  • Rumours say the ID.7 GTX will use the same front motor as the ID.4 GTX.

  • Distinctive elements will include gloss black accents and red stitching.

Less than a month after having launched the ID.7 electric sedan simultaneously in Europe, North America, and China, Volkswagen has already teased a sportier version that will arrive in September.

Considered the flagship of VW’s electric ID. range, the ID.7 will be the next to receive the more dynamic GTX treatment later this year.

Seen on models such as the ID.4 and the ID.5 in Europe, this trim level is characterized by elements such as gloss black accents, more aggressive bumpers, and specific wheel designs that make it the “GTI of EVs”.

This will continue to be true for the ID.7 since despite not revealing a lot of details, Volkswagen confirmed this model will stand out from the regular sedan with black accents, a black roof and darkened windows.

Inside, the ID.7 GTX will be recognized by its red stitching and it will feature the latest in-car software from VW, just like the regular ID.7.

Since the automaker says the sporty EV will offer standard all-wheel drive, rumours claim it will use the same 107 horsepower front motor as the ID.4 GTX.

Combined with the standard rear motor that delivers 282 horsepower, this could give the GTX version close to 390 horsepower.

Of course, this increase in performance will come at the cost of range, but it is still too early to know how much of a difference there will be between GTX and regular models of the ID.7.

For comparison, the RWD model powered by the 77 kWh battery is expected to have around 300 miles (483 kilometres) of EPA range.

European buyers will be offered a larger 86 kWh battery and it is possible that it will be standard in the GTX.

While the ID.4 GTX has yet to be offered in the United States and Canada, the ID.7 GTX could make it to our shores since Volkswagen seems intent on making this new sedan a truly global product.

More information will be available after the ID.7 GTX is launched at the Munich Auto Show which will be held from September 5 to 10.
