Mk1 EV Golf digitally becomes a vintage GTX with help from 2021 Volkswagen ID.3
This is not the first time that Estonian virtual artist Siim Parn (aka spdesignsest on social networks) has decided to offer a vision of a world where the original VW Golf (born 1974) had an alternate life. In it, ICE powertrains were nowhere to be found and it was already zero emissions. Naturally, he had a modern helping hand, as the inspiration came directly from the first representative of MEB architecture.
At the time, Siim Parn had promised that other points of view would come. Normally when that moment comes, we just update our previous episode to make sure it stays relevant. This is exactly what we did on this occasion as well, but we also felt that a special representation of the Mk1 Golf EV also deserved an equally in-depth second look.
This is because this pixel master exceeded expectations on this occasion. As such, in addition to presenting the initial white Golf from several angles, he also decided to add more colors to the mix. As such, we have integrated under the alternatives yellow, gray, orange, (ultra) violet, blue, (very) green, black, light blue and red.
But that’s not all, as it also lined the pot with a paint job and a few design changes that both bring to mind the fiery times of the original Golf GTI and connect the dots with the sporting future of the new one. ID. GTX range.
Basically it’s a “Back to the futureA way of thinking that makes us wonder if Volkswagen shouldn’t be paying more attention to what these imaginative people are doing on the internet rather than forgoing the full price to come up with insanely stupid marketing stunts such as the ‘Voltswagen’ debacle. “.
Frankly, if this VW Golf GTX Mk1 were real, no one would likely have confused it with the classic EV, as it will with the ultra-tame VW ID.4 GTX 2022 when it hits the road. And wouldn’t it be cool if the design proposal somehow managed to squeeze under the body of this two-motor all-wheel-drive setup worth 295 Electric Ponies?
