a 100% electric rally SUV in Mexico

The new 100% electric Volkswagen ID.4 SUV is engaged in a rally in Mexico, to promote its performance in an extreme environment.

A special version of the new Volkswagen ID.4 is engaged this week at National Off-Road Racing Association (NORRA) Mexican 1000, a rally which takes place from April 25 to 29, 2021 in the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. Recently voted World Car of the Year 2021, the 100% electric SUV now wants to promote its performance in an extreme environment.

Volkswagen ID.4: a 100% electric competition SUV

This somewhat special copy of theID.4 1st Edition has been modified by Rhys Millen Racing, with an interior designed for racing featuring a roll bar and bucket seats, additional screens to monitor the condition and temperature of the battery, underbody protections, 18-inch OZ Racing rims with all-terrain tires, not to mention a full suspension revised and raised by about 5 cm for the off road

.

The ID.4, however, retains its rear-wheel drive and 201 horsepower electric motor as standard, as well as its 82 kWh battery. To recharge it, a portable biofuel fuel generator, with a power of 50 kW, is on board, which should allow it to complete up to 98% of the route without needing to be plugged in.

Volkswagen has a long history with the NORRA Mexican 1000: as early as 1967, a Beetle driven by Meyers Manx won the first edition of the rally, which has come a long way since. This year, the race route will span 1.836 km, of which 1,437 were taken off-piste.
