VW ID.X Performance is based on the ID.7 and has an all-wheel drive layout
Check out what Volkswagen has in store for the future with its latest concept, the all-electric sports limousine called the ID.X Performance. It is a mid-size sedan with four doors, a powerful all-wheel drive, and a performance-oriented suspension.
“The MEB offers many fantastic possibilities for approaching vehicle development with a great deal of creativity. It was clear to us that we wanted to base our new show car on the ID.7 and that we would focus on enhancing the performance. In this way we can show what is possible,” said Andreas Reckewerth, Head of Technology Office MEB (modular electric drive platform from Volkswagen).
It is still early in the concept’s development but the ID.X Performance shows plenty of sporty exterior features like a carbon front splitter and rear diffuser, increased toe by 80 mm, and a sports suspension system lowered by 60 mm using stiff springs. Size 265 racing tires wrapped around 20-inch alloy wheels keep it connected to the ground, while a carbon wing delivers the necessary downforce.
The cabin has carbon bucket seats with red accents and a 6.7-inch diagonal infotainment screen.
Moving the ID.X Performance around is a 200-kW battery with a dual-motor setup that makes 558 PS with a boost function. The permanently excited synchronous motor on the rear axle is complemented by an additional asynchronous motor on the front axle to create an all-wheel drive layout. The drive torque is controlled by a Vehicle Dynamics Manager, which also manages the operation of the rear axle differential lock in the ID.X Performance.
