Based on the ID. 2all, it has retro gauges, black trim, and an AR windshield that displays race track layouts not unlike a video game
Are you ready for the quintessential hot hatchback to go electric? Volkswagen is prepping the segment with its retro-themed ID. GTI Concept at IAA Mobility 2023, which seeks to bridge 48 years of combustion-powered GTI history with VW's electric future.
If the red car featured here looks familiar, you're probably thinking about the VW ID. 2all Concept that debuted earlier this year. The similarity is no accident – Volkswagen designers actually had the GTI in mind while designing that concept, and as such, you'll find pretty much the same features here, albeit trimmed with black and red. There are sportier fascias front and rear, and it rides on wheels that draw inspiration from the Mk1 GTI. Taillights are darker, and a wing atop the hatch blends with black trim around the window. The grille also gets blacked out with red trim, and naturally, you'll find GTI branding all over.
At this point, we'd love to tell you about the motivation beneath the skin of this racy red hatchback. For now, VW doesn't have anything to say other than it's a single-motor, high-performance powertrain that features an electronic differential lock for the front wheels. It also offers a wide range of customization through the GTI Experience Control, which can adjust everything from the suspension to steering feel, sound, and even create simulated shift points to mimic GTIs from decades past.
