Volkswagen has told us that the next generation of its hot R models are about to get a jump in performance and capability, and will include a range of both SUVs and electric ID models for the first time.

 

Currently, the R treatment is only applied to the Golf and Scirocco (yes, it’s still on sale), but VW bosses have confirmed that the R treatment in future will not only spread to compact SUVs, the T-Roc and Tiguan, but also VW’s incoming electric ID range.

 

VW has played its first hand at connecting the ID and R brands with the ID R Pikes Peak racer – an electric prototype racing car that VW has engineered to break the electric car record at the Pikes Peak event. The ID R will also form a basis of VW’s development of the next-generation electric World Rallycross car – a racing series it has also connected to the R branding with the Polo R WRX entry.
