  • Interview with Chief Development Officer about parallels between the ID.R electric racing car and future electric production vehicles from the ID. family
  • Records with the ID.R underline the performance capabilities of e-drive from Volkswagen
  • Technology transfer between production development and Volkswagen Motorsport

Volkswagen has added two more chapters to the ID.R’s success story: the lap record for electric powered vehicles on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife was followed by the absolute track record at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This once again impressively demonstrated the performance capabilities of electro technology. But the ID.R is more than a record holder – it is the racing spearhead to the ID. family of fully electric powered production vehicles, which will appear on the market from 2020. In an interview, Dr. Frank Welsch, Chief Development Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, speaks about the significance of the records for the brand’s electro-mobility offensive.
