Volkswagen guarantees service and spares for Golf TCR
22 November 2019
Volkswagen announced it will focus on electric motorsport programmes in the near future, but also that customer service and spare parts supply for the Golf GTI TCR will be guaranteed in the long term.
“In motorsport, Volkswagen is resolutely committing to e-mobility and will say goodbye to factory-backed commitments using internal combustion engines,” said Dr. Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand with responsibility for Technical Development.
“Electric mobility offers enormous development potential, and in this regard motorsport can be a trailblazer: on the one hand, it serves as a dynamic laboratory for the development of future production cars and, on the other, as a convincing marketing platform to inspire people even more towards electric mobility,” explained Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets.
Volkswagen Motorsport’s customer sport programme will also be electrified and the first stage will involve different disciplines, platforms and vehicle types being examined and evaluated.
