Volkswagen Set a New Record for Pikes Peak Hill Climb. In an Electric Car

An electric car just broke the course record at one of the hardest car races in the world. At the 2018 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday, the Volkswagen I.D. R. driven by Romain Dumas laid down a track record, and the first-ever sub-eight-minute run with a time of 7:57.148. The previous record was 8:13.378 set by Sebastien Loeb driving a Pugeot in 2013. Even more impressive is the full minute Dumas shaved off the previous EV record of 8:57.118.
