ID.R thrills in South Africa

Electric racer presented to around 70,000 motorsport fans

70,000 visitors who descended on the Festival of Motoring at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit (ZA) were able to get to see the all-electric race car with their own eyes at the Volkswagen stand for four days. This year, it has already set records on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife (D) and at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (GB). The annual Festival of Motoring is the largest car and lifestyle event of its kind in South Africa.

Mike Glendinning, the Sales and Marketing Director for Volkswagen Group South Africa (VWSA): “We want to show people that electric vehicles can be sporty, fun and provide an exhilarating driving experience. As such, we have brought the ID.R electric racing car to the 2019 Festival of Motoring.” With the racing ambassador of the future ID. product family, Volkswagen is demonstrating its competence in the field of electrically powered vehicles. On 2 September, the ID.R goes back to a record hunt on Tianmen Mountain in China.
