Volkswagen has built an all-wheel-drive electric car prototype to conquer the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a famous testing ground for electric vehicle technology.

In collaboration with its technology development team in Wolfsburg, Germany, Volkswagen is going all-out in building an all-electric sports car to compete at the Pikes Peak high-altitude race in Colorado in June 2018. Formerly an unpaved rally dirt road, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb later became a showcase for new advancements in dirt bikes, motorcycles, stock cars, and other exhibition vehicles.

Volkswagen’s goal at Pikes Peak is to stress test the prototype’s battery and drive technology using the course’s 12.4-mile course, comprising of a 5,000-foot climb and a maximum elevation of around 14,000 feet above sea level. The record for completing the course by an electric prototype is eight minutes, 57.18 seconds, a record set by U.S. driver Rhys Millen a year ago.

“The Pikes Peak hill climb is one of the world’s most renowned car races. It poses an enormous challenge and is therefore excellently suited to proving the capabilities of upcoming technologies,” said Dr. Frank Welsch, a member of the board responsible for development. “Our electric race car will be equipped with innovative battery and drive technology. The extreme stress test on Pikes Peak will give us important findings that will benefit future development, and it will showcase our products and their technologies.”

No specifications have been released yet, with Volkswagen only teasing a cryptic looking silhouette image of the prototype.
