Charging to the peak – Volkswagen ID. R Pikes Peak set for world premier

Charging to the peak – Volkswagen ID. R Pikes Peak set for world premier
  • Spotlight: Pikes Peak super sports car to be unveiled
  • Record attempt on June 24th: Volkswagen competes in legendary American hill climb race with an all-electric racing car

It is the start of a new era in motorsport for Volkswagen – and one thing is already certain: This Volkswagen is set to electrify its public. When the ID. R Pikes Peak is presented to the public on the coming Sunday, 22 April, it will be Volkswagen’s first fully-electric racing car. Lightweight construction and aerodynamic perfection contribute to an exciting design, which houses a powerful electric power unit. The ID. R Pikes Peak will first take its place under the spotlight of the international media at the racetrack in Alés, France – home of world-class driver Romain Dumas (F), who will be at the wheel for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb – before the official test programme gets underway just one day later.
Key date, 24 June 2018 – one goal: Break the record for electric racing cars.
