The Volkswagen ID.5 GTX is all-set to be unveiled next month as a disguised concept at the IAA Munich Motor Show.
The first SUV coupé based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB), is also the first all-electric SUV coupé from the brand.
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 illuminated honeycomb elements on both the driver and passenger side.
They complement the signature of the low beam and convey the athletic character even while stationary.
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.
At the rear, horizontal lines accentuate the width, with the light strip attracting the most attention. The LED rear lights with a 3D design complete the feeling of luxury.
According to Volkswagen, the GTX abbreviation continues the tradition of the successful GTI, GTD and GTE models and transfers it to the world of electric mobility.
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, superior traction and sporty handling. The large lithium-ion battery between the axles enables a projected range of up to 497 km.
Expected to arrive at selected markets around the world in 2022, the ID.5 GTX will be the second model from the sporty GTX product brand.
Interior and other technical details are yet to be revaled for now, but we should have a clearer picture upon its preview at the IAA Munich Motor Show next month.
