Volkswagen Previews ID.7 GTX: A High-Performance, All-Electric Long-Distance Sedan

What’s Happening

Volkswagen is set to introduce the most dynamic model of the new ID.7 lineup, the ID.7 GTX, as an all-electric sedan targeting the luxury vehicle buyer. The world premiere will take place at the IAA Mobility in Munich, running from September 5th to 10th, 2023. The ID.7 GTX features a dual-motor all-wheel drive system, the latest drive generation of the ID. models, and numerous sporty design elements.

Why It Matters

The ID.7 GTX is a significant addition to Volkswagen’s electric vehicle (EV) lineup, showcasing the brand’s dedication to developing high-performance, sustainable, and intelligently sporty vehicles. This launch will help Volkswagen compete with other EV manufacturers and cater to a broader range of customers.

Key Points

The ID.7 GTX’s interior boasts red contrast stitching on the seats, dash panel, and doors, emphasizing the model’s sportiness. In contrast, the exterior design features black gloss elements, a standard black roof paint finish, and darkened windows, giving it a powerful and distinctive appearance.

The vehicle dynamics manager, developed in-house by Volkswagen, intelligently controls the ID.7 GTX’s dual-motor all-wheel drive system to optimize efficiency, dynamics, and driving stability. It also manages the powertrain, braking, steering, and chassis control systems, depending on the chosen driving profile. The limousine’s running gear and steering have been fundamentally enhanced based on the modular electric drive (MEB) platform, providing a wide range of options between comfort and sportiness.

Bottom Line

The ID.7 GTX cements Volkswagen’s commitment to the successful GTX brand, which has been a part of its portfolio for two years now. These all-electric performance models blend electric mobility, sustainability, and intelligent sportiness, with designs that highlight their special character and recognition value. The introduction of the ID.7 GTX will strengthen Volkswagen’s position in the EV market and showcase the brand’s dedication to a sustainable and high-performance future.
