Off-road version of the ID. Xtreme, created on the basis of the ID.4 electric crossover, was supplemented by Volkswagen with another study, but this time focused exclusively on asphalt. It’s called ID.5 GTX Xcite and it was built by apprentices in Saxony.
Volkswagen equipped the electric ID.4 for off-road, and this concept has higher performance
It’s not Volkswagen’s first entry-level car, but in the past it was usually machines based on sharpened versions of the Golf. This time we have an electric car in front of us, which has gone from a crossover to a low-profile hatchback.
The most striking change is the new wheels, which are 22 inches in diameter and a completely different design than anything you’ll find in a standard Volkswagen range. They have a matte black color with a powder coating and are extremely hard.
Another distinguishing element is the matte coating, which you may also be looking for in vain on a VW book model. On parts of the body, the paintwork is from Lamborghini, and the glossy black roof is natural in ID.5 even in production. What can only be seen upon closer inspection are the slightly modified fenders, mudguards and sills, which are a bit wider.
The interior is fitted with new Alcantara upholstery and vegan leather, along with orange stitching to match the stripes and the GTX logo on the sides of the car. Alcantara found a place not only on the seats or steering wheel rim, but also on the dashboard and even the steering column.
The main change, however, is in the trunk. A fixed installation with several speakers, which is part of the new audio system with a total output of 2 kW, was moved to the trunk of the car.
Finally, the car also includes an electric skateboard with a special mount on the subwoofer housing. It has the GTX logo and the same paint job as the car body.

The ID.5 GTX Xcite was presented at the Swiss Identity Conference. Meet, but let’s not expect that in production. It remains an exclusive concept, similar to Skoda student cars.
