VOLKSWAGEN is to launch sporty GTX variants of its all-electric ID.3 and ID.7 Tourer models.

They will join GTX versions of the ID.4 and ID.5 which now account for 20 per cent the cars' sales.

The ID.3 GTX will be rear-wheel drive and come in two trims with the top range model dubbed Performance and a vehicle VW says follows on from the Golf GTI Clubsport.

The car has a GTX-specific front bumper which features a new independent black air intake in a diamond-style design and has new daytime running lights on the left and right.

The black elements of the body have a high-gloss finish which also applies to newly designed side sills and a new lower area of the rear end with diffuser.

Also new are the 20-inch alloy wheels which are fitted as standard while the Performance version is fitted with an adaptive chassis control system.

The ID.7 Tourer has a dual motor all-wheel drive set up similar to the ID.4 and ID.5 GTXs.

It has a restyled bumper with honeycomb grille and GTX-specific light graphics including illuminated badges.

As with the ID.3 GTX, all black elements have a high-gloss finish which additionally applies to the side sills and the lower area of the rear bumper in GTX design.

The interior has features such as individualised seats which are heated in the front with perforated GTX lettering in the backrests, red piping on the seats, red seams on the dash panel and door trims as well as a GTX-specific multi-function steering wheel with red decorative stitching.

The luggage compartment capacity of up to 1,714 litres is just as large as for the rear-wheel drive variants.

Performance details of both models are still to be revealed as are prices but the ID.3 GTX can be expected to cost more than £40,000 and the Tourer upwards of £60,000.
