Volkswagon to manufacture all-electric sports car

Motorsports to shift from fuel driven cars to electric cars soon, Volkswagen to reveal its electric variant in June 2018.Technology has favored the sports enthusiasts and challenges to manufacturers equally to manufacture suitable cars. Volkswagen is adding its electric car variant in June 2018.

The four-wheel drive sports car could be its turning point for its future electric ID family with the sportiest range of Volkswagen products, the R models. It also represents the first step to connect the Volkswagen R and Volkswagen Motorsport. The Volkswagen brand plans to offer more than 20 -electric variant cars by 2025. Manufacturing of the first production model in the ID family is scheduled to start at the end of 2019 in Zwickau, Germany.

“We want to be at the forefront of electromobility with Volkswagen and the ID family,” explained Dr. Frank Welsch, member of the Volkswagen board for development. Adding “Competing in the most famous hill-climb in the world with the ID R Pikes Peak not only has symbolic meaning but it will be tested for the general development of electric cars.”

Jürgen Stackmann, a member of the board for sales and after sales, marketing added “Pikes Peak is without question the most iconic hill-climb in the world. For Volkswagen, it represents a fantastic opportunity to change the topic of E mobility, both emotionally and from a sporting perspective, thanks to the ID R project.”

Volkswagen last entered the Pikes Peak hill-climb in 1987 with a dual-engine Golf, which generated an impressive 652hp. However, we narrowly missed out success.

“It is about time we settled the score,” said Volkswagen Motorsport director Sven Smeets. “The ID R Pikes Peak represents an extremely exciting challenge for us, to show what is possible with an electric engine in motorsport. The entire team behind our driver Romain Dumas  who is highly motivated to set a new record for electric cars.”
