Two days to go until the record attempt: kW buzz on Pikes Peak

  • The ID. family get-together: I.D BUZZ meets the ID. R Pikes Peak
  • Sven Smeets: “Pikes Peak is unique. You have to experience it for yourself.”
  • Big live event on Sunday in Autostadt, Wolfsburg

At 10:00 local time (18:00 CEST) on Sunday, Volkswagen will begin its pursuit of the record for electric vehicles, which currently stands at 8:57.118 minutes, at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in the US state of Colorado. Three-time overall winner Romain Dumas will be at the wheel of the ID. R Pikes Peak, Volkswagen’s first fully-electric racing car. The Frenchman set the fastest time in qualifying on Wednesday. Much is new to many of the Volkswagen crew on Pikes Peak, both on and off the track.
