The next peak for Volkswagen to conquer

By:

Volkswagen returned to motorsport and smashed the Pikes Peak record. The manufacturer has proved it can develop exciting electric car technology, which it could bring to further prominence in another series in 2020.

I was there for the hill, not the future. But, in the end, it was Volkswagen's I.D. R and not America's Mountain that took my breath away. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb gave a bewildering insight into what's coming our way as VW delivered tomorrow's world today (actually last month).

But what next? No sooner had the dust begun to settle on the latest addition to the Wolfsburg team's trophy cabinet than folk a few doors down were sitting around a table and talking about the future.
