Volkswagen Introduces the ID.X Performance: a 550-HP Electric Sedan Concept

Volkswagen unveils the ID.X Performance concept, a high-powered electric car based on the ID.7 sedan, emphasizing performance and aerodynamic design.


  • The ID.X Performance boasts a remarkable 550 horsepower, complemented by a unique aerodynamic design.

  • The car is characterized by its notable features, such as a dominant black grille, carbon fiber diffusers, and a striking rear spoiler.

  • The ID.X Performance is currently showcased at the international ID. Treffen show held in Locarno, Switzerland.


Volkswagen continues its journey into the electric vehicle domain with the introduction of the ID.X Performance concept. Following the unveiling of the ID. GTI concept in Munich and anticipated performance enhancements for the ID. Buzz and ID.3, the automaker now ventures deeper into the performance segment with this dedicated concept.

The ID.X Performance is a powerful and sporty iteration of the ID.7 sedan. While it retains the foundational shape of the ID.7, its design elements set it distinctly apart. The car’s front showcases an assertive transformation: a prominent black grille at its base is complemented by matching vents on either side. A continuous red trim, reminiscent of the GTI design, envelops the vehicle, while a carbon fiber diffuser adds to its sporty appeal. The car’s stance is further accentuated by 20-inch sport alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Cup 2 R racing tires, and the wheel wells are enveloped in robust black plastic.

The rear design is equally compelling. A large spoiler dominates the trunk lid, and the carbon fiber diffuser seamlessly merges with the red trim that runs around the car. Notably, the ID.X Performance sits 2.4 inches (60 millimeters) closer to the ground than the standard ID.7, emphasizing its sporty character.
