Volkswagen ID.4 SUV Prototype Spotted Could Be Top-Line GTX Trim

The Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV is still on track for later this year; will the hot GTX come at the same time?


  • GTX Volkswagen ID. vehicles will sport dual motors and highest power outputs.

  • The ID.4 SUV is expected to launch later this year unless the pandemic has other plans.

  • Physical upgrades include more aero bits such as a rear spoiler.


The Volkswagen ID. family of EVs is gearing up and fast. The first-born ID, the ID.3, is back on track and the next in line is the ID.4 compact SUV. A number of test mules and prototypes have been spotted all over the globe in the last few months but this latest capture of the ID.4 is especially interesting as it might be the top-trim GTX model.

Late last year, we reported that Volkswagen was going to reinstate the “GTX” trim to define the top-performing members of the ID. sub-brand. In this latest collection of spy shots shared on InsideEvs, the spotted ID.4 sports a number of tell-tale signs that it just might be a GTX.

The front and rear bumpers are deeper and more pronounced than many previously seen. We love what VW tried to do with the grille to trick onlookers… As for the wheels, it’s difficult to say but the rear minimal integrated spoiler could be the dead-giveaway.

What’s intriguing is that, if this is the GTX and it’s already being tested, could it mean that VW intends on bringing it to market at the same time as the regular model? It would be an unusual move.
