Volkswagen has added a warmed-up GTX model its retro-inspired ID.Buzz range, complete with more performance and sportier styling.

The ID. Buzz becomes the fourth model to get the GTX treatment, following on from the ID.3 and ID.7 Tourer GTXs revealed only last week.

At the heart of the sporty makeover is the dual-motor set-up shared with the ID.7 Tourer GTX, giving the people-mover a hefty 335bhp and four-wheel drive – that's 134bhp more than the single-motored standard ID. Buzz. The power is split between an 80kW motor on the front axle and a 210kW motor on the rear; torque has jumped up to 560Nm, allowing the ID. Buzz's towing capacity to rise from 1,000kg to 1,800kg. 

There's a choice of two batteries – 79kWh and 86kWh, with the former being 2kWh larger than the standard ID. Buzz's battery pack. Range hasn't been revealed yet, but it's likely the GTX will manage between 240 and 250 miles on a charge. Charging capability, meanwhile, stands at 185kW for the 79kWh battery, meaning a 10-80% top-up should take 25 minutes, while the 86kWh pack has a 200kW peak charge rate allowing a sub-30-minute 10-80% refill. 

The GTX comes in standard and long-wheelbase forms, and get some extra styling features including a different bumper design, 'arrowhead' LED daytime running lights, honeycomb grille and different alloy wheel designs. Meanwhile, on the inside, there's black headlining, red stitching and GTX logos aplenty. There's also the latest 12.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Order books are due to open in the summer and prices will be announced closer to the time, but we expect a starting figure of around £70,000.
