Volkswagen Unveils the Electric ID. GTI Concept at the Munich Motor Show
Sporting subtle black trims around its headlights with a touch of red highlights reminiscent of older GTI models, this concept car has a refined appearance. It features a honeycomb mesh grille and a set of LED fog lights. Additionally, the ID. GTI introduces striped graphics, a modest black spoiler, and slightly tinted taillights, all resting on 20-inch wheels.
Slightly smaller than the traditional gas-fueled Golf GTI, the ID. GTI's size is similar to the VW Polo GTI. Although its cargo space is a tad smaller than the Golf GTI, it offers a bit more overall space, thanks to its slightly taller design.
The interior is comfortable, featuring tartan sport seats with a small GTI emblem and a golf-ball-inspired drive mode selector. Its steering wheel design is a bit sportier, and it includes a 10.9-inch instrument cluster. Notably, there's mention of an augmented reality head-up display.
While Volkswagen hasn't provided extensive details about the powertrain, it's known that the ID. GTI will have a front-wheel-drive system and might be slightly more powerful than the ID. 2all. The battery placement is confirmed to be on the floor, but its exact capacity is yet to be disclosed.
The production of the ID. GTI is confirmed, but when and where it will be available remains a question. With the ID. 2all's starting price being below $30,000, there's hope that the ID. GTI will be reasonably priced.
All in all, the Munich Motor Show served as a serene backdrop for Volkswagen's reveal of the ID. GTI Concept, which was accompanied by the triumphant first appearance of the 2025 Mini Cooper E & SE.
