Why this brave attempt?
With the record attempt of the ID.R at Tianmen Mountain, Volkswagen’s China E-Offensive is spectacularly presented. Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Development Volkswagen Passenger Cars: “With the ID.R we have repeatedly shown how powerful Volkswagen cars with electric drive already are today. From 2020, we will be bringing ID. models – an entire product family of purely electric vehicles – to the market. As the sporty flagship of these future production models, the ID.R combines technical electric drive competence with the emotions and fascination of motorsport.”
“With the ID.R, we want to prove once again that electric mobility is not only fun, but also powerful and efficient. The clear message of the ID.R is: electric mobility is emotional and fascinating,” explains Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for Sales, Marketing and After Sales.
