Dr. Frank Welsch, Chief Development Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars says that the development of the ID.R has led to reciprocal technology transfer between Volkswagen Motorsport and the production development.

VW says that their motorsport division has benefited from the production developers’ knowledge in building batteries and handling high-voltage components in the vehicle while production developers have learned from the Motorsport team and how to deal with Rapid charging Technology and how to best optimize energy recuperation. Volkswagen also says that the performance of the ID R With all the records that it is breaking at different Motorsport events has resulted in an increased popularity in the new ID 3.

The ID.R currently has the fastest electric vehicle lap record in the  Nürburgring with a time of 6:05.336 which was previously held by the NIO EP9 with a time of 6:45.90.  Romain Dumas, the man who drove the ID R in it’s record breaking lap was able to reach speeds of 169 mph and he also set a record in the ID.R for the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb with a time of  39.90
