Brute force, but electric

The GTX name identifies the most performance models in Volkswagen’s electrified range, as is the case with the ID. 4 GTX. It is, therefore, a zero-emissions van with a lot of horsepower in kilowatts, specifically 250 kW which becomes 340 HP. It reaches them thanks to the rear motor 210 kW (286 hp) and a propeller asynchronous motor (ASM) on the front axle 80 kW (109 HP)so it is all-wheel drive.

Its towing capacity increases.

Both engines propel this model with zero label up to 160 km/h, with an acceleration ofe 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds. Is it practical for a van?
