Emotional and functional – the design of the I.D. R Pikes Peak

Design of the I.D. R Pikes Peak – close collaboration between designers and engineers
  • All-electric driven prototype for the most famous hill climb in the world shows technical elements of the future production cars of the I.D. family
  • Volkswagen Design team implements project in record-breaking time
  • I.D. R Pikes Peak is an extremely emotional interpretation of the electro-mobility issue

Development of the I.D. R Pikes Peak started around seven months ago – a multifaceted challenge, including for the Volkswagen Design team. “We already have a wealth of experience with high-performance cars and with racing cars, but a powerful prototype like the I.D. R Pikes Peak was a world first for us,” said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. “Our task was to transfer the unmistakable style of the I.D. family to such an extreme and emotional racing car.”
