Volkswagen is planning to reduce its CO2 footprint per car by 30 per cent over the entire life cycle by 2030 (compared with 2018). It is hardly surprising therefore that Volkswagen’s all-electric vehicle portfolio is continuing to expand. The brand is demonstrating its focus in this respect on combining sustainability and performance: with the new ID.4 GTX (power consumption in kWh/100 km: combined 18.2–16.3; CO2 emissions in g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+++), the brand’s battery-operated top-of-the-range model is now available – placing driving pleasure in the spotlight thanks to the dual-engine all-wheel drive. The fact that the electric SUV also impresses with high-quality design elements and intelligent innovations makes the newcomer interesting for fleet operators too: as a user-chooser model with a certain (e-)kick.
That’s because the new ID.4 GTX not only has a powerful electric drive motor, it has two – one each on the front and rear axles. Both can work together as a dual-engine all-wheel drive and thus offer attractive performance on practically any terrain. At its world première at the former Berlin Tempelhof Airport, for example, it climbed an incline of 37.5 per cent effortlessly.
Electric driving is simply great fun – and with the ID.4 GTX we are adding a new dimension of sportiness and dynamics.
But the ID.4 GTX is a high flyer when it comes to its design too – thus underscoring its extraordinary character. The familiar light strip at the front has been combined with powerful, dynamic elements – in particular, the three honeycomb elements that form the daytime running lights. They convey the sporty character of the ID.4 GTX even when it is stationary and establish a visual connection to the Golf GTI (fuel consumption in l/100 km: in built-up areas 9.0–8.6, outside built -up areas 5.6–5.3, combined 6.9–6.5; CO2 emissions in g/km: 157–149; efficiency class: D–C). Alongside the newly designed bumpers, the eye-catching elements at the rear include the 3D LED tail light clusters with brake lights that form an X. Fitting therefore that this icon is used online to denote affection, since the ID.4 GTX has managed to establish a warm relationship with vehicle fleets too.

1)The range was determined on the rolling road test bed according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), using the specification variant of the ID.4 GTX most favourable in terms of range (77 kWh net battery energy content). The actual WLTP range values may vary depending on the equipment. The actual range achieved under real conditions varies according to driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, outside temperature, number of passengers/load and topography.
The specified fuel consumption and emission data has been determined according to the measurement procedures prescribed by law. Since 1 September 2017, certain new vehicles are already being type-approved according to the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Starting on 1 September 2018, the WLTP will gradually replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Because it involves more realistic testing conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values calculated in accordance with the WLTP are in many cases higher than those calculated in accordance with the NEDC. As a result, there may be corresponding changes to vehicle taxation starting on 1 September 2018. Further information about the differences between WLTP and NEDC can be found at https://www.volkswagen.de/wltp. We are currently still required by law to state the NEDC figures. In the case of new vehicles, which have been type-approved according to the WLTP, the NEDC figures are derived from the WLTP data. Until it becomes compulsory, additional information about the WLTP values is provided on a voluntary basis. In cases where the NEDC figures are specified as value ranges, these do not refer to a particular individual vehicle and do not constitute part of the sales offering. They are intended solely for comparing different types of vehicles. Additional equipment and accessories (e.g. add-on parts, different tyre formats etc.) may change the relevant vehicle parameters, such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics, and, in conjunction with weather and traffic conditions and individual driving style, may affect fuel consumption, electrical power consumption, CO₂ emissions and the performance figures for the vehicle. Further information on official fuel consumption figures and the official, specific CO₂ emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the “Guide on the fuel economy, CO₂ emissions and power consumption of new passenger car models”, which is available free of charge at all sales dealerships and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes measure vehicles based on CO₂ emissions with due regard for the empty vehicle weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are rated as D. Vehicles that exceed the current average are rated as A+++, A++, A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are below average are described as E, F or G. The information provided here relates in each case to the EC type approval of the selected model and its standard equipment in accordance with European Directive 2007/46/EC. Optional equipment selected by you at the configuration stage can mean that your configured model corresponds to a different approved type due to the selected equipment than would otherwise be the case without the selected optional equipment. This may result in deviations in the specifications for your configured model. The specified CO₂ values are values established during type approval of the vehicle.
