Price parity between electric and internal combustion cars is close - Volkswagen

The mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette convertible has been filmed in public while undergoing testing in the US. The video (bottom) was filmed by Brendan Macie and posted to his YouTube channel.

Volkswagen ID. R sets Nürburgring efficiency record

We’ve heard of the fastest lap times on the Nürburgring, but how about the most energy-efficient lap? Volkswagen is bragging it's done just that on the famed circuit with its electric ID. R racing prototype. Back in June race driver Romain Dumas sped through the 20.8-km track in just 6:05.336 minutes, with the ID. R using just 24.7kWh of energy – the most energy-efficient lap of all time on the Nordschleife.
