The continuing development of the Volkswagen ID. R to make the record on Nürburgring-Nordschleife possible

The continuing development of the Volkswagen ID. R to make the record on Nürburgring-Nordschleife possible
The Volkswagen ID. R
  • Comprehensive testing and simulation programme for the evolutionary stage of the purely electric ID. R 
  • Knowledge transfer with the ID. Product family in battery development

The next challenge for the ID. R awaits: in summer, a new record is set to be delivered on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The team from Volkswagen Motorsport are therefore working intensively on the continuing development of the purely electric-powered race car. The focus of the testing and development phase is on increasing the efficiency of the vehicle. The ID. R, powered by two electric motors with system performance of 500 kW (680 hp), is the racing forerunner to the ID. product family, the future range of purely electric-powered production vehicles from Volkswagen.
