The 680hp (500kW) electric drive system has been adapted to the very individual characteristics of the Nordschleife. The ID. R's new aero package with a drag reduction system will allow a top speed of 167mph, and the car has an optimised energy management system to control the power output of the two electric motors and recovery of energy.
