PostHeaderIcon 2019 VW Jetta Sets a Bonneville Speed Record

Jetta? Bonneville? Well, apparently yes. When you think about the typical Jetta buyers, you don’t exactly picture them as the Bonneville salt flats type. But for some reason Volkswagen felt the need to have this car set a record at the legendary proving ground. The 2019 VW Jetta prepared for the job managed to clock 210.16 mph (338.15 kph).

But before you rush to get yourself a Jetta, thinking you can challenge supercars in it, the Bonneville Jetta was a specially modified one. You can tell in the footage this 2019 VW Jetta is no ordinary mid-range sedan. It has a special aerodynamic body kit with a drag coefficient of just 0.27. What’s more, the 2.0 liter TSI engine in this thing, though production-based, is tuned to make 600 horsepower at 8500 rpm. It has special connecting rods, pistons, valves, camshafts, turbocharger, and exhaust system. And it has a big parachute at the back because otherwise it won’t stop in time not to kill the driver.

So yes, that seems like a lot of trouble, especially just to hit 210 mph. But hey, that is still an impressive record for a Jetta – a feather in its cap.



“Achieving this speed at Bonneville is a demonstration of the quality, durability, power, and efficiency of the Volkswagen TSI® engine series and the stability and aerodynamic efficiency of the all-new 2019 Jetta,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America. “This record underlines the sporty credentials of our all-new Jetta and also gives a hint at the future of the GLI model, since this car uses a modified version of the GLI’s powerful EA888, 2.0-liter TSI engine.”

PostHeaderIcon 2019 VW Beetle Final Edition Marks the End of Production

So the Beetle is, once again, at the end of the road, going out of production in 2019 without any plans for a future revival. If you are a fan, don’t despair. They will bring the thing back at some point. And until then, you have the VW Beetle Final Edition to keep yourself amused with. 

Available in Coupe and Convertible variants, the 2019 VW Beetle Final Edition boast unique looks and equipment. It comes in two special colors which should mean a lot to Beetle fans. One is Safari Uni, a reinvention of Harvest Moon Beige, a color from the New Beetle. The other is Stonewashed Blue, a nod to the 1970 Jeans Bug and most recently seen on the 2016 Beetle Denim. The Safari color comes with a brown soft top on the convertible model (SEL).

What’s more, 2019 VW Beetle Final Edition in SE guise comes with 17 inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a 15-spoke design. The SEL variant gets 18 inch wheels. Then there is the long list of equipment, where both versions boast KESSY keyless access with push-button start, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel with unique “Beetle” clip, stainless steel pedal caps, Climatronic automatic climate control, gloss black center console, a unique Safari Uni color dashpad with the classic kaeferfach and ambient lighting.

Powering the Final Edition Beetle is a 2.0 liter TSI with a six-speed automatic. It develops a decent 174 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque and returns 29 mpg combined. As for the cost, Beetle Final Edition coupe starts at $23,045 for SE models and $25,995 for SEL models. Beetle Convertible Final Edition pricing starts at $27,295 for SE models and $29,995 for SEL models.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen T-Cross Shows More of Itself in Official Renderings

One of the most highly anticipated cars to be launched this fall is the new Volkswagen T-Cross. This tiny SUV has already stolen the hearts and mind of the urban crossover crowd, and they haven’t even seen the thing in its entirety. But they don’t have much longer to wait. In fact, already VW has given us an early look at the car through some official renderings. 

Looking chiseled and athletic, the 2019 Volkswagen T-Cross is apparently going to rely on the “cool factor” to make its way into the upper echelons of the market. “I am practical”, “I am cool”, “I am intuitive” and “I am safe” are the four slogans of this car, as it were. The only issue we see with that is calling yourself cool is not very cool. It’s pretty uncool, actually. But VW must have their reasons to feel confident about this car.

Besides practicality and good looks, Volkswagen T-Cross is also going to take advantage of the personalization trend that seems to be going on at the moment. The crossover will be offered with 12 exterior colors, two-color dashboard and in different bi-colour paintwork versions as an option. Another trendy feature is the beats audio system for listening to the tunes you can stream straight from your smartphone, because yes, there is full integration available.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Golf R Now Available with 40 Custom Colors!

If you are a hot hatch fan and you are looking to buy a new model, the color is probably way low on your list of priorities. But the new 2019 Golf R is such a hot hot-hatch that VW of America decided the only way to make it more appealing is by offering a bunch of cool custom colors. 

The new range of custom paint jobs, which are offered in addition to the five standard colors (Nogaro Blue Pearl and Violet Touch Metallic, to Caribbean Green and Copper Orange Metallic) include up to 40 different colors. Now, it’s great that they are offering so much choice to their customers, but 40 is kind of too many and it only serves to confuse people. I mean how do you decide which shade you like best when you are choosing among forty?





There is one thing you take solace in, and that is the fact that there is an online customizer will soon be launched with all forty colors included, so you can narrow down your list before going to the dealership. What’s more, some of these color have historical significance, such as Viper Green Metallic, originally found on the European Mk 3 Scirocco, Deep Blue Pearl from the Mk 4 and Mk 5 R32, Ginster Yellow from the 1997 Driver’s Edition GTI, and Mars Red from the Mk 1 GTI.

There is also one factor that might dissuade you from ordering a 2019 Golf R custom color in the first place, and that the price. The MSRP for each of the custom colors is $2,500. You know what, I’d rather spray paint mine…

PostHeaderIcon 2019 VW Touareg Gets New V6 TDI Engine in the UK

The diesel-loving British market is being treated by Volkswagen to a new TDI offering on a popular SUV. It’s the 2019 VW Touareg receiving a new turbodiesel engine, a 231 PS V6 TDI engine, which is presumably for those who found the already existing 290 PS unit a tad too hot to handle. 

The new 231 PS and 500 Nm of torque V6 TDi does, however, offer better fuel efficiency and lower CO2s, and starting at £48,995 the 2019 VW Touareg powered by it is considerably cheaper than the more powerful version. It can be ordered for all trim levels, including Touareg SEL, Touareg R-Line and Touareg R-Line Tech, and like all other UK-spec Touaregs it comes paired with an eight-speed tiptronic automatic gearbox, 4MOTION four-wheel drive and a limited slip differential.

So at nearly 50 grand, the 2019 VW Touareg is by no means an affordable SUV. But it is one of the most well-appointed in terms of features and equipment. Even the base SEL trim gets such goodies as ‘Vienna Black’ leather and LED white interior lighting, aluminum trims, Discover Navigation Pro infotainment system with 9.2 inch screen, a three-year subscription to Car-Net ‘Guide and Inform’, 19-inch ‘Osorno’ alloy wheels and full LED headlights.

2019 Touareg UK Price List:

Model Engine Gearbox CO? g/km Price
Touareg SEL 3.0 V6 TDI 231 PS 8-sp auto 173 £ 48,995
Touareg SEL 3.0 V6 TDI 286 PS 8-sp auto 173 £ 51,595
Touareg R-Line 3.0 V6 TDI 231 PS 8-sp auto 173 £ 52,495
Touareg R-Line 3.0 V6 TDI 286 PS 8-sp auto 173 £ 55,095
Touareg R-Line Tech 3.0 V6 TDI 231 PS 8-sp auto 173 £ 55,595

PostHeaderIcon VW Arteon Stars in Fancy Schmancy Photo Shoot

There is no doubt that the Arteon is one of the best looking cars Volkswagen has made in a long time. Knowing this, and intending to make good use of it, they hired award-winning photographer and filmmaker Douglas Sonders to feature the car in a unique photo shoot. 

Don’t let the fact that there are a lot of girls included in these photos fool you into thinking this is a cheap commercial photo shoot. Yes, Sonders does give sex a prominent spot in his work, but there is also some art in there if you look close. The goal here, apparently, has been to give the Arteon a cool techno vibe as it sits there acting as the backdrop for models Shelby Bay and Krislian Rodriguez. In doing so Sonders has drawn inspiration from 80s music and synth wave music in particular.

VW Arteon is not just a cool, urban design though. It also has a lot of substance, including a 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine, making 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, eight-speed automatic transmission, adaptive damping, and optional 4Motion all-wheel drive.








“It’s important to capture a car’s essence,” says Sonders. “I develop an emotional attachment to my cars, and they each have a personality in their designs. The Volkswagen Arteon has a beautiful modern edge, from the shoulder lines to the grille, and I wanted to do it justice.”

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc Gets a New Diesel Engine in the UK

In a bid to make the new T-Roc crossover more appealing to the UK buyers, Volkswagen announced the addition of a new turbodiesel engine for the car. The new 1.6 TDI complements the already available two petrol units and one 2.0 liter diesel, offering a more frugal and cost-effective alternative. 

Let’s get right down to the numbers and see what this Volkswagen T-Roc turbodiesel can do performance-wise. It generates 115 PS and 250 Nm of torque, both respectable figures for a car of this type. In comparison, the 2.0 liter TDI available for 4MOTION four-wheel drive has 150 PS and 340 Nm of torque. But then the 1.6 unit has CO2 emissions as low as 115 g/km, so it’s really about compromises and what you want from your car.

Every 2019 VW T-Roc in the UK comes as standard with eight-inch colour touchscreen and Volkswagen’s Composition Media infotainment system, Front Assist with radar and emergency brake, LED daytime running lights, 2Zone electronic climate control and electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors. The SE trim adds to that Adaptive Cruise Control, among other features, while SE-L brings satellite navigation and Car-Net ‘Guide and Inform’. There is even an R-Line trim which gets sporty highlights such as 19 inch wheels and sporty body components.



Prices for the 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc range with the new 1.6 liter TDI engine is as follows:

Model Gearbox Price – RRP OTR
T-Roc S 6-speed manual £21,290
T-Roc SE 6-speed manual £22,765
T-Roc Design 6-speed manual £23,465
T-Roc SEL 6-speed manual £25,085
T-Roc R-Line 6-speed manual £27,010

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace Accessories for Summer

Just in time for the summer holidays in the UK, VW announced the launch of a range of useful accessories for their large Tiguan crossover. The 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace accessories range covers a wide variety of outdoors activities relevant to this season, designed to make life easier and the vacation more enjoyable. 

With an increased wheelbase and seven seats, the Allspace Tiguan is already a family-friendly car built for road trips and getaways. The accessories are built to allow customers to make the most of the SUV’s versatility. And they begin with the Roof Bars which connect standard-fit roof rails to create an adjustable platform that other Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace accessories will connect to.

The first item most people might consider is a roof box, because for long-distance traveling the large boot of the Allspace may not be enough. The box comes in various sizes from 300 to 500 liters if you for the adjustable one, or 360 or 360 liter fix units. Then there is the aerodynamically-designed bicycle holder featuring an anti-theft protection, lockable ski and snowboard holder, and the Compact III Bicycle Carrier for the more serious pedaling enthusiasts. These Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace accessories are complemented with a pair of cool and sturdy running boards that provide easy access to the roof.

As for the less holiday-focused and more day to day items in the list, we have the protective door sill trims with a black/silver finish, transparent rear bumper protector, and durable and non-slip rubber floor mats.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 VW T-Cross Teased, Slots Beneath T-Roc

Even though people these days are getting fatter and fatter, car makers insist on making smaller and smaller cars. So after the reasonably tiny T-Roc Volkswagen is now presenting the 2019 VW T-Cross, an urban crossover with an even smaller footprint. 

This is the production version of the T-Cross concept from two years ago, being prepared for official launch towards the end of 2018. According to the German automaker, the 2019 VW T-Cross offers maximum flexibility, by which they mean it is about as practical as you can get with a car this size. Speaking of size, the T-Cross measures 4,107-mm long, but it is designed to that it can accomodate four adults comfortably.

And that, the design, is the best thing about the 2019 VW T-Cross. Judging by what we can see in this preview, the crossover is tall, muscular, and imposing, what with those flared arches and sculpted sills. We also get a glimpse of the lights, and although they have the typical VW design, you have to admit they do look quite classy and refined. So all in all, the T-Cross seems to have it on the lock as far as appearances are concerned.

As for the powertrains and other technical stuff, the only official tidbits include modular transverse matrix (MQB), and standard  “Front Assist” (ambient traffic monitoring system) and “Lane Assist” (lane departure warning system). To know more, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer.

PostHeaderIcon It’s Done it! VW I.D. R Sets New Pikes Peak Record

It tool a lot of effort and God knows how much money, but they’ve done it. Volkswagen has broken the record for the Pikes Peak international hill climb with the fully-electric VW I.D. R, setting an astonishing time of 7m 57.148s minutes which is a full 16 seconds faster than the previous record. 

And that is the overall records we’re talking about, not just the time for electric cars. The 500 kW (680 PS) VW I.D. R is now the king of Pikes Peak in every category, and it will probably remain so for the foreseeable future. After all, it took five years for the previous record,set by Sebastian Loeb in 2013, to be bested. But then again, that was the age internal combustion. In the electric age things move at a much faster pace. So yeah, let’s not make any predictions.

The VW I.D. R Pikes Peak record also turned its driver, the French man Romain Dumas,into a legend. His name is now forever mentioned in the same breath as the giants such as Sebastian Loeb, Walter Röhrl (D), Michèle Mouton (F), Stig Blomqvist (S), Nobuhiro Tajima (J) and also Rod Millen and his son Rhys (both NZ). It was, in short, the perfect game.

“The I.D. R Pikes Peak is the sporty forerunner of Volkswagen’s I.D. family. Today, we saw what this technology is capable of,” said Dr. Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand with responsibility for “Technical Development”. “Every Volkswagen employee can be extremely proud of today’s result. I congratulate the team from the bottom of my heart. With a combination of outstanding engineering skills, passion and commitment, the team has managed to create a fantastic racing car in just eight months. The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak has now set the fastest time in the history of this hill climb, which spans more than 100 years – that speaks volumes for electric mobility.”

PostHeaderIcon VW I.D. R Pikes Peak Sets Fastest Qualifying Time

This year’s Pikes Peak race to the clouds will be headed by the VW I.D. R Pikes Peak electric race car. The I.D. earned this honor by setting the fastest time during the qualifying session in which Romain Dumas climbed the first 8 kilometer section of the course in 3:16.083.

That was more than 11 seconds faster than the second fastest time, which will kind of make the race itself pointless, and VW I.D. R’s win a forgone conclusion. After all, it had a huge gap in qualifying over the second quickest car. Mind you, Pikes Peak is a hill climb and qualifying times are only used to determine the starting order for the race. They are not really important. The race could still hold surprises.

On Sunday 24 June VW will pursue its goal of setting a new record for the famous Pikes Peak course in Colorado-an occasion that will not only be a great achievement for VW and their driver, but for electric cars everywhere.

“That was a very good day for us,” said Dumas. “The I.D. R Pikes Peak is incredible. I have never experienced acceleration and power like that in a racing car. I am noticing how the car and I are becoming more and more of a unit with every kilometer,” said the Frenchman.

Sven Smeets, Volkswagen Motorsport Director, was also happy with the way qualifying panned out: “A big compliment to the entire team. We completed an important test yesterday, the findings from which have helped us to further optimize the set-up of the I.D. R Pikes Peak. The result is that the car was superbly prepared today, and the time speaks for itself. However, that was only qualifying. We are optimistic about the race, but must always bear in mind that we only have one single attempt.”

PostHeaderIcon Golf GTI TCR Concept Unveiled, Packs 290 PS

Volkswagen released today the first official shots of the hotly anticipated Golf GTI TCR Concept. Set for debut at this year’s Worthersee event, the near-production concept previews an upcoming road-going version of the Golf TCR race car. 

So this is the car for those who are not satisfied with the performance of the standard GTI, but find the R versions a bit much. The Golf GTI TCR Concept hits a real sweet spot in terms of design and power output, featuring a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine with 290 PS/286 horsepower and peak torque of 273 pound-feet. THe power stillgoes to the front wheels via a standard 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential.

In terms of speed, VW says Golf GTI TCR Concept can hit 164 mph flat out, even though they have limited it to 155. Fans will be happy to know that this potentially expensive Golf is also sufficiently cooler to look at than the regular GTI, thanks mainly to 18-inch “Belvedere” forged aluminum rims wiht 19 inchers available, perforated brake discs, revised front bumper with a splitter, new side skirt extension, unique rear diffuser and tailpipes, and TCR lettering as well as GTI-style honeycomb trim.

Inside the cabin the main highlights include sports seats with microfiber and fabric upholstery, contrast stitching on the steering wheel and shifter, and TCR logo projector inside the doors. There is also an optional performance package for this car which includes a sports chassis setting and DCC adaptive damping as well as 19 inch wheels as standard.

PostHeaderIcon Road-Going Golf GTI TCR Set for Wörthersee Debut

It is now one of the auto world’s most well-established traditions that VW has to unveil a cool concept Golf at the annual Wörthersee event. The thousands of VW fans that descend on the place expect to see something amazing, and this year it takes the form of a road version of the Golf GTI TCR touring car.

Volkswagen is adamant that Wörthersee-bound Golf GTI TCR is a prototype, but they also call it the “new top model” on a couple of occasions. So chances are we will soon see a production version of this bad boy, maybe as a limited edition model. The specs, juicy though they are, certainly fit the bill for a production car. The TCR has a TSI turbo engine with 190 PS and 370 Nm of torque, a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) and a front axle differential lock.

That setup makes the Golf GTI TCR the fastest Golf ever. The top speed is restricted to 250 km/h, but if you have the limiter removed the hot hatch is capable of clocking 264 km/h. Visually, the car is pretty GTI-ish, save for flared arches, a subtle aero kit, TCR graphics on the sills, special wheels, and dual exhaust integrated into the rear diffuser. Again, all the features are virtually production-ready.


With more than 2.2 million units sold, the Golf GTI has become one of the world’s most successful compact sports cars. It all started life in 1976 as a 110 PS front-wheel drive car, which made high driving dynamics affordable. Originally, only 5,000 cars of the original GTI were to be built – 4,400 times as many have now been produced.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak Racer Officially Unveiled

VW today took the wraps off their awesome new race car designed for 2018 Pikes Peak hill climb. The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak is an all-electric, high-performance machine with high hopes to smash the course’s 8:57.118 minutes record for electric cars. 

Weighing less than 2,500 lbs and boasting 680 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak has performance numbers to match its spaceship-like appearance. The car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 2.25 seconds. And because it doesn’t have an internal combustion engine there altitude, which is as high as 4,720 feet at Pike Peak, will have no negative effect on its oomph.

We had seen sketches of Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak before, but in the metal the car looks even more amazing. As VW says, the aim in designing the I.D. R was not maximum performance, but rather the perfect balance between energy capacity and weight. The technologies used in this racing car, such as the battery pack, energy storage, and regenerative brakes, will be utilized in VW’s production cars in the near future.

The I.D. R will take part in the Race to the Clouds on June 24 with world-class driver and defending Pikes Peak champion Romain Dumas at the wheel.








“Volkswagen’s goal is to reach the pinnacle of electromobility with the I.D. family,” said Dr. Frank Welsch, Volkswagen Member of the Board of Management with responsibility for Development. “The hill climb on Pikes Peak will definitely be a real acid test for the electric drive. Customers have always benefitted from the findings made in motorsport, and we expect to take these findings and use them as a valuable impetus for the development of future I.D. models.”

PostHeaderIcon 2019 VW T-Roc R-Line & Tiguan R-Line – UK Pricing and Spec

Good news for those looking for a unique and sporty crossover this year. VW just announced the launch of R-Line editions of their popular crossovers featuring enhanced styling and extra equipment. The new VW T-Roc R-Line and Tiguan Allspace R-Line will arrive in June and May respectively, priced from £26,450 and £35,755… respectively. 

The 2019 VW T-Roc R-Line is the one we are partial to, what with it being the newer product and the overall sportier proposition. The R-Line treatment gives the five-seater crossover an athletic look, complementing its practicality and user-friendly features. Available trims include 150 PS 1.5 TSI EVO with 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG, and 2.0 TSI 190 PS 4MOTION with the same transmission choices.

As for what the treatment brings to table for T-Roc R-Line, the main highlights of design include 19-inch ‘Suzuka’ alloy wheels shod with low rolling resistance tyres; sports suspension; body-coloured roof spoiler and styling pack including R-Line design front and rear bumpers, black wheel arch extensions, body-coloured side skirts and unique R-Line badging. Inside, you get  black roof lining; dark grey decorative inserts in dash and door panels; front footwell illumination; front LED reading lights; Carbon Flag upholstery; chrome R-Line door sill inserts; aluminium pedals; R-Line carpet mats front and rear and a flat-bottomed R-Line leather multi-function steering wheel.

The 2019 VW Tiguan Allspace R-Line is the bigger options here, but it is no less sporty. The list features on this one includes 20-inch ‘Suzuka’ alloy wheels, a body-coloured roof spoiler; Piano Black front air intake and rear diffuser and extensive R-Line styling pack. Inside the cabin you will find aluminium-look decorative inserts in dash and door panels; a black roof lining; leather trimmed three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with aluminium inserts and ‘R-Line’ logo; ‘Race’ cloth upholstery and ‘San Remo’ microfibre inserts; ‘R-Line’ logo on front seat backrests; stainless steel pedals and unique ‘R-Line’ door sill protectors.

The only engine choice for the Tiguan is a 2.0 TDI but it comes in 150 and 190 PS variants. You can also choose if you want 4MOTION all-wheel-drive, manual or DSG transmission.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Volkswagen Touareg Goes Official

After an elaborate teaser campaign in which a prototype of the car traveled 16,000 kilometers to its own debut in Beijing, the 2019 Volkswagen Touareg SUV finally went official earlier today. They unveiled the car in China because it is now, along with Russia, the biggest market not just for the Touareg, but VW in general. 

2019 Volkswagen Touareg has been designed and developed with “focus on people,” mainly those inside the cabin. The exterior design is fairly underwhelming, but the interior is kind of cool with its Innovision design concept, featuring Digital Cockpit with 12-inch display and Discover Premium infotainment system with 15-inch display. It’s like driving a spaceship. It may look too screen-y for those used to more traditional cabins, but it is very much of its time.

The new Touareg is also said to be the most refined Volkswagen ever, with the most comprehensive package of assistance, comfort and handling ever integrated into a car. The features range from Night Vision and Roadwork Lane Assist, to Front Cross Traffic Assist, active all-wheel steering, roll stabilisation with electromechanically controlled anti-roll bars, ‘IQ.Light – LED matrix headlights’ (interactive, camera-based dipped and main beam headlight control) and a ‘Windshield Head-up Display’.

2019 Volkswagen Touareg is also wider and longer than the previous generation, but it’s lighter as well. The increased size means greater practicality, with luggage capacity boosted to 810 litres (with rear bench seat up). Engine-wise, the SUV launches with two V6 turbodiesels offering 230 PS and 286 PS, to be followed by a V6 petrol engine developing 340 PS and a potent V8 diesel developing 420 PS. There is also a plug-in hybrid drive version with 370 PS which will initially launch in China and probably later on in Europe as well.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak Confirmed for the Big Race

VW today named and revealed the first pictures of its contender for the 2018 Pikes Peak hill climb event. The alien spaceship-looking Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak is, as that I.D. in its name suggests, an electric prototype racing car, and it’s built to make some hype for VW’s I.D. family of all-electric vehicles which arrive in 2020. 

That is, of course, if it finishes the race to the clouds with dignity. It doesn’t have to win it, but in order for people to take notice of VW’s new rage of electric cars, the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak has to be at least in the top three when it crosses the line. The car certainly looks the part, it’s four-wheel-drive, and it certainly has a superb powertrain, the specs of which are yet to be revealed. But how well it can handle the 12.4-mile route up the  Colorado Springs in the Rocky Mountains remains to be seen.

Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management with responsibility for Sales, Marketing and After Sales, adds: “Pikes Peak is without question the most iconic hillclimb in the world. The I.D. R project represents a fantastic opportunity for Volkswagen to change the conversation about e-mobility, both emotionally and from a sporting perspective.”
