The hatchback version of the all-electric Volkswagen ID.7 GTX has finally been revealed, joining the Tourer estate that was uncovered earlier this year.

The styling and hardware improvements that comes with the GTX badge starts with the powertrain, which uses Volkswagen’s latest dual-motor setup and an 86kWh (usable) battery pack. Producing a maximum of 335bhp, this figure is not a sum total of the two motors’ peak figures, but the most that’s able to be drawn from the battery pack at any one time. On their own, the GTX’s rear motor is capable of producing 281bhp and the front 107bhp, giving us a clue into the overall bias to the power delivery.

Alongside the ID.7 GTX Tourer, the new ID.7 GTX is currently the most powerful electric vehicle from Volkswagen. The new ID.7 GTX is recognisable thanks to the distinctive GTX design at the front and rear. In addition, the fastback now has a significantly improved range of standard equipment. Exterior features include the new 20-inch Skagen alloy wheels with diamond-cut surfaces and the IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights with illuminated Volkswagen logos at the front and rear. The vehicle has a unique light design thanks to the GTX-specific light signature in the air intakes at the front. Meanwhile, the interior has a refined look owing to features such as heated seats with red contrasting topstitching and perforated GTX lettering on the backrests. Another GTX-specific feature is the multifunction steering wheel with a red centre panel and red topstitching. The interior of the ID.7 GTX is illuminated by 30-colour ambient lighting. Other standard equipment includes wireless App-Connect for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the augmented reality head-up display, the IDA voice assistant with integrated ChatGPT (AI/artificial intelligence), a two-zone automatic air conditioner, the keyless locking and starting system Keyless Access and an anti-theft alarm system. Among the latest optional technologies is Park Assist Pro, which allows users to control parking procedures using their smartphone.

Pre-sales of the new ID.7 GTX and the three other new models with 86-kWh batteries are scheduled to start on 6 June. The new ID.7 GTX Tourer is identical to the GTX fastback in terms of its technology. However, the two versions differ when it comes to their luggage compartments. While the ID.7 GTX Tourer can hold up to 605 litres of luggage with five people on board (with Tourer rear seat backrests in cargo position), the ID.7 GTX fastback has a maximum luggage compartment capacity of 532 litres. This means the GTX models offer the same generous luggage compartment capacity as the other vehicles in the ID.7 product line. The same applies to the maximum roof load of 75 kg.
