Volkswagen has achieved another milestone in electro-mobility: The ID.R, powered by two electric motors, lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 6:05.336 minutes – faster than any electric vehicle before it. Romain Dumas (F) beat the previous record set by Peter Dumbreck (GB, NIO EP9) in 2017 by 40.564 seconds. With an average speed of 204.96 km/h, the ID.R once again underlined the impressive performance capabilities of Volkswagen’s electric drive. This 500 kW (680 PS) emission-free race car is the racing flagship of the future fully electric ID. product family from Volkswagen.
Volkswagen Motorsport has always pushed the boundaries of e-drive technology working with suppliers around the world to find the best solution to meet their exact requirements. There is no doubt that the future of motorsport is in electric powertrain and this latest record is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the VW team and their partners.
