In recent years, the builders have launched a series of projects aimed at elective actions. We have witnessed the beginning of hipercarriers with hybrid propulsion systems and even electric competitions. Head of the Volkswagen R division, says that future cars of presentation should be 100% electric and not hybrid.
Officials in the Volkswagen R Group affirm that the cars of action should not integrate systems of their own hybrid systems. The Germans depend on the idea of 100% electric vehicles and the ID R prototype has managed to complete some difficult tasks.
In recent years, the builders have launched a series of projects aimed at elective actions. We have witnessed the beginning of hipercarriers with hybrid propulsion systems and even electric competitions.
Volkswagen is one of the manufacturers that have entered the world with the prototype ID R. The electric vehicle has managed to establish a new daily record on the famous Pikes Peak climb, and also a reference time dedicated to electricity on the Goodwood Road. Also, in the coming period, Volkswagen R representatives are preparing for a fast tower of the famous Nurburgring circuit next to ID R.
In an interview, Jost Capito, head of the Volkswagen R Division, says future cars should be 100% electric and not hybrid.
"I do not believe in hybrid systems for sports cars, so you get the worst of both worlds, and with a hybrid you will never have the maximum performance for two Nordschleife courses, you can stay without the extra resources even in the middle of the road. the power goes away, you will only remain with the means of internal combustion, but at the same time the car is heavier with 200 pounds, the mass of the necessary hybrid batteries, "said Jost Capito.
Under these circumstances, the representative of Volkswagen R suggests that the future models of development of the Germans would move directly to propulsion systems.
"I see the next step as a 100% electric. Do you have an internal combustion engine or you only have an electric system," said Volkswagen R.
In addition, Jost Capito believes that a sports engine is a real launch for both new technologies and their media coverage.
"Rallycross is a great discipline for electric vehicles. You can have a powerful / massive connection identical to the internal combustion, but at the same time you can participate in events that occur in cities," said the representative of Volkswagen.
