Volkswagen has revealed a performance-focused concept car based on its upcoming ID.7 electric saloon, the firm's rival to the Tesla Model 3. 

The ID.X Performance is said to be a preview of a future high-performance model, and features a number of styling and technical changes over the standard ID.7.

The most obvious difference is the car’s aggressive exterior styling, which includes a new front splitter, a large rear diffuser and a rear spoiler - all made of carbon fibre to reduce weight.

A pair of sporty carbon bucket seats and red accents both inside and outside also serve to differentiate the ID.X Performance from the standard version. 

It has been lowered by 60mm, and the sports suspension incorporates firmer springs to deliver a more focused driver experience, and the larger brakes provide greater stopping power. 

Under the skin, the ID.X Performance is powered by two electric motors, one on each axle. This gives the car all-wheel drive and a combined output of 558bhp, which is a sizable increase from the standard car’s output of 282bhp. 

The present lineup of Volkswagen's EVs bearing the GTX badge are the ID.4 GTX and ID.5 GTX, which closely resemble their standard counterparts.
