Volkswagen showed of an all-electric version of the Golf called the eR1 at the Ice Race GP in Zell, Austria.

Not much is know about the concept except that it’s a battery electric vehicle with all-wheel drive, and that it uses the previous generation VW Golf as a base.

InsideEVs spoke with VW R division, Jost Capito and he told them that the eR1 was “not built to any race regulations, and it's not intended to race - but we'll use it to get experience of electric performance cars and to do fun stuff with the car to showcase the technology."

Later in the article they hint that the eR1's "powertrain might be related to that of the ID.R racing car - it has two electric motors which make a combined 671 horsepower and 479 pound-feet (649 Nm) of torque."
