Volkswagen it seems he is working on the restyling of his electric ID.3. Apparently, however, the restyling will not only introduce some tweaks to the aesthetics of the car as it will lead to the debut also the GTX version. We are therefore talking about a more performing model, characterized by the presence of a double electric motor and four-wheel drive. This is a highly anticipated version that the German brand had already talked about in the past, confirming its future arrival, without, however, providing particular details.
Confirmation that the ID.3 GTX will be launched with the restyling of the ID.3 comes from an AutoExpress report citing a statement from the carmaker’s spokesperson, Martin Hube, on the sidelines of the presentation of the ID.5 in Austria. This is obviously very interesting news even if there are no certain times yet. In fact, we don’t know exactly when Volkswagen will introduce the restyling of its ID.3. Certainly not in 2022. Possible, however, that it can arrive in the course of 2023.
Surely there will be a way to learn more about the GTX version and the restyling of the electric over the next few months.
At the Munich Motor Show 2021, the Volkswagen CEO, Ralf Brandstätter, had confirmed that the ID.3, in the future, would also be offered in the more performing GTX version. We remind you that the GTX brand identifies the best performing Volkswagen electric models. Currently, the manufacturer offers the ID.4 GTX and the ID.5 GTX.
The automaker hasn’t announced any details on the powertrain that will be used on the ID.3 GTX. There will certainly be a double electric motor and four-wheel drive but the powertrain will not be the one seen inside the Volkswagen ID.X concept car capable of delivering 245 kW.
Most likely, the choice will fall on the 220 kW (299 hp) twin engine already used on both the ID.4 GTX and the ID.5 GTX. On SUV models this powertrain allows very interesting performance. Since the ID.3 is smaller and lighter than the ID.4 and ID.5, thanks to the increased power it could be really fun to drive.
Therefore, all those who are waiting for a more performing version of the ID.3, will be satisfied in the future.
