VW Reviving The Classic Beach Buggy As An Electric Concept
31 January, 2019, 22:01
Although it hasn't been confirmed for production just yet, Volkswagen created it to show that its upcoming MEB platform for fully electric vehicles is flexible enough to accommodate lower-volume niche vehicles such as this - so our suspicion is that it will eventually get the green light if the public get excited enough about the show auto.
Volkswagen in January said that it was in constructive talks to share the MEB platform with Ford, with which it entered into a wide-ranging partnership. This concept is basically an exercise to showcase the versatility of their new modular electric platform.
As for the current Beetle, which is a much more conventional vehicle, it will be discontinued at the end of the 2019 model year, but VW hasn't ruled out the chance that something like it will come buzzing along on the MEB chassis in the future.
In a single teaser image, the electric dune buggy is seen with a flared and swooping body, no doors, direct entry sills and an open top.
Tesla's profit fails to please analysts In the year-ago quarter, Tesla posted a loss of $3.04 per share on revenue of $3.29 billion. Total fourth-quarter production grew 8% from the third quarter to 86,555 vehicles.
Volkswagen just dropped teaser photos of their upcoming beach buggy concept. It's highly unlikely this would ever become a production model, but Volkswagen is using this concept to demonstrate that its MEB architecture could be used for a new wave of electric dune buggies with which the aftermarket could let loose.
Of all the auto designs it could revive, Volkswagen chose the buggy partly based on popularity and partly based on parallelism. But before you go reaching for the DEET or that electrified badminton racket thing, know that it's the exciting electric dune-buggy kind of "bug". "It is vibrancy and energy on four wheels", states Klaus Bischoff, Head Designer at Volkswagen.
This ultramodern buggy is scheduled to make its first appearance at Volkswagen's press conference at the Geneva Motor Show on March 5.
