The Germany-based Volkswagen (VW) Group is one of the leading manufacturers of automobiles and commercial vehicles across the globe. It is renowned for its iconic Beetle and other popular models, including Jetta, Golf, and Passat, etc.

It has launched its first performance-focused electric vehicle ID 4 GTX, which is all set to hit the road on 28 April 2021.

It is noted that in Europe, the VW makes use of different badges like GTI for gasoline, GTD for diesel, and GTE for its plug-in hybrid models.
