Volkswagen has named its latest motorsport project the I.D. R Pikes Peak. This all-electric prototype racing car will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on June 24 in Colorado.
In the first two months of 2018, the Volkswagen Group delivered more than 1.6 million vehicles to its customers throughout the world.
The Volkswagen brand can look back on a successful financial year in 2017. The brand sold 6.23 million vehicles and improved sales revenue to €80 billion. For the first time in five years, the operating result before special items increased, reaching the highest level since 2012, at €3.3 billion.
The all-new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will arrive in dealers this summer with improved EPA-estimated fuel economy for the model: 30 miles per gallon city and 40 mpg highway, for a combined 34 mpg, two mpg higher on the combined measure than the automatic transmission version of the current generation Jetta.
The Volkswagen brand delivered 407,100 vehicles to customers worldwide in February 2018.
Starting in 2020, Volkswagen will be launching the I.D. Family, a range of newly-developed electric vehicles with long driving ranges and visionary design that will come to market in quick succession.
