The first SUV coupé based on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) with its elegant design and powerful dual motor four-wheel drive is expected to be unveiled on September 7th.
There is an electric motor on both the front and rear axle of the ID.5 GTX – the dual motor four-wheel drive guarantees strong driving performance and sporty handling. The large 77 kWh lithium-ion battery between the axles enables a projected range of up to 497 km.
The abbreviation GTX represents the Volkswagen brand’s new athleticism. It continues the tradition of the successful GTI, GTD and GTE models and transfers it to the world of electric mobility. As WhichEV reported, VW has already introduced the ID.4 GTX that generates 299 hp and 310 Nm of torque with a solid range of 301 miles.
The new GTX is rather intriguing thanks to its design. In the high front, the IQ.Light LED matrix headlights, which generate an intelligently controlled high beam, give the front of the car a likeable look. The light strip that tapers towards the Volkswagen logo has been combined with three powerful, illuminated honeycomb elements on both the driver and passenger side.
Also, the flat sloping A pillars positioned right near the front give the roof line an elegant flow – it stretches low over the body and tapers out in an integrated rear spoiler.
Volkswagen aims to become the most popular brand when it comes to sustainable mobility. The goal is to increase the share of all-electric cars in Europe to 70 percent of Volkswagen‘s unit sales by 2030 and to become net carbon neutral by 2050.
