VW has absolutely destroyed the Pikes Peak record with the all-electric I.D. R

Another record broken by an electric car.


We’ve seen clips of it hurtling around the hillclimb course in practice with the intent being to make history, but the I.D. R all-electric time attack car purpose built by Volkswagen has obliterated the Pikes Peak record by a full 15 seconds. The car has ascended the 14,000-feet hillclimb route in 7:57.148, eclipsing the previous record of 8:13.878 set by Sebastien Loeb in the Peugeot 208 T16 back in 2013.
