This electric monster is the latest motorsport project of Volkswagen, its official title ‘the I.D.R Pikes Peak’ – wouldn’t like to say that after a few beers!
The all-electric prototype racing car will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on 24th June in Colorado, USA.
According to electric-vehiclenews.com ‘The four-wheel-drive racing car points to the sporting potential of the I.D. family of all-electric vehicles and is also the first step towards a closer relationship between Volkswagen R and Volkswagen Motorsport’.
Volkswagen plan to offer more than 20 fully-electric cars by 2025, with the manufacture of the first production model of the I.D. family scheduled to start at the end of 2019 in Zwickau, Germany.
