The car that inspired my lifelong love affair with cars was the Mark 1 Golf GTI and Volkswagen has reinvented the GTI for a new electric era, 48 years after the first Golf GTI made its debut. The new ID.GTI Concept is based on the ID.2 first seen in March and is the first all-electric model to wear the badge. The brand had previously suggested that the GTI badge would be replaced by GTX on electric models – but this will be kept for high-performance cars with all-wheel-drive.

Where the ‘I’ previously stood for Injection, VW claims it is now representing ‘Intelligence’ for the “most intelligent solutions in the sports car world”. Just like the ID.2all, the ID.GTI Concept is more than just a show car – the company says production has already been confirmed.

Official details of the powertrain are sketchy, but even the standard version of the ID. 2all concept claimed to have a surprisingly powerful 223bhp motor driving the front wheels. Volkswagen claims a 0-62mph time of under seven seconds and a top speed of 100mph. Both are expected to be boosted for production versions of the GTI.
