vw's electric pikes peak racer accelerates faster than an f1 car


combine that with potentially better aerodynamics (the vw car is closer to a le mans car than the usual hill climber) and the result is an ev that can outperform some of the fastest race cars. with a 0-60mph time of 2.25 seconds, vw claims its machine can accelerate faster than a formula 1 or formula e racer. that could be crucial on pikes peak, where top speed matters far less than how you recover speed.the weight savings come in part through energy regeneration. while many evs can restore energy while braking, vw's system manages to produce about 20 percent of the necessary energy through braking alone. you don't necessarily need a giant battery to make it to the top, in other words.the i.d. r pikes peak makes its debut at the 2018 race on june 24th. vw certainly isn't guaranteed to s...
