  • ID.R: Sporty figurehead of Volkswagen’s electrification strategy and ambassador for a future family of electric production vehicles
  • The pursuit of records: Volkswagen demonstrates technical expertise on Pikes Peak, at the Nürburgring and in Goodwood
  • Tianmen Mountain: Preparations underway for the ID.R’s record attempt in the expanding market that is China

Their names alone are enough to send shivers down the spine of any automobile fan: The legendary hill climb on Pikes Peak, the famous Nürburgring-Nordschleife, and the iconic Goodwood Festival of Speed. The fully-electric Volkswagen ID.R holds spectacular records at each of these prestigious motorsport venues. But that’s not all. The sports car will take on its next record attempt in September: The ID.R will set a target time on Tianmen Mountain in China. The goal for this extraordinary outing in the Far East is to set a milestone for electric cars and, in doing so, to support Volkswagen’s e-strategy in China, which is really picking up speed this year. By 2035, Volkswagen intends to increase the percentage of e-cars within its annual deliveries in China to 50 percent.
