Volkswagen ID.7 GTX teaser.jpg

The fledgling GTX brand is reserved for Volkswagen’s sporty all-electric cars and while it’s only featured on the ID.4 and ID.5 so far, the ID.7 has been confirmed as the next model to wear the badge.

The ID.7 GTX will be fully unveiled at the IAA Mobility Show in Munich between 5 and 10 September, just before the regular ID.7 saloon goes on sale in the autumn. Like other GTX models it’ll offer fairly mild exterior tweaks and an increase in performance.

VW has teased the ID.7 GTX showing a few close up images. The main changes will come courtesy of black gloss accents, a black roof, tinted windows and GTX badging. The interior will come with red stitching on the seats, dash and doors to match the exterior paint.

As a performance-focused, all-electric saloon car, the ID.7 GTX will go up against the likes of the Tesla Model 3, BMW i4 and Polestar 2. To help give it a fighting chance, Volkswagen has fitted a dual-motor system which we expect to be powered by an 82kWh battery - up from the 77kWh unit found in the ID.4 and ID.5 GTX models. Power figures haven’t been released yet but somewhere in the region of 400bhp seems likely.

Volkswagen says the ID.7 GTX is ‘fine-tuned for driving pleasure' thanks to a dynamics control system that can tweak braking, steering and the chassis depending on the driving mode.

The standard ID.7 will come with up to 435 miles of range in 82kWh form so with the extra focus on performance we expect the GTX model to fall short of this number.

Volkswagen ID.7 GTX revealed, Offers 340hp with AWD configuration

Volkswagen-ID.7-GTX.jpg

Volkswagen has revealed a new sporty electric model for its global markets. The Volkswagen ID.7 sedan gets a 340hp dual-motor setup and offers a GTX badge. The ID.7 GTX now joins the likes of ID.3 hatchback, ID.4 SUV, ID.5 SUV-coupe, ID.Buzz MPVetc.

The company’s flagship sedan was being planned for launch for some time by the company. The German brand confirmed the car as it revealed the ID.7 GTX tourer. When it comes to the engine, we get a dual-motor powertrain as in the ID.Buzz and ID.7 Tourer siblings. Volkswagen offers an 86kWh battery on the GTX sedan which is same as the ID.7 Pro S. It can be charged up to 200kW from 10-80 percent in less than 30 minutes. It is likely that the ID.7 GTX will offer range of up to 685km.

The Volkswagen ID.7 GTX is expected to get a tweaked chassis and dynamics as compared to the ID.7 GTX Tourer. The sedan gets a sportier steering set-up and buyers can customize the car with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC). This feature offers a revised dynamics manager.

There are some sporty cues on the exterior of the car and we get a bumper, LED ‘arrowhead’ DRLs, black gloss trim, etc. On the interior, the sedan is similar to the GTX Tourer. However, the company is yet to announce the launch of the sedan in the Indian market
