Volkswagen is bringing back the dune buggy – this time powered by an electric motor.
The fully electric buggy is based on the historical predecessors that found their home in California. Back then, the chassis of the Beetle served as the basis. Now, VW’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform is proving to be just as flexible.
True to the original style, this reinterpretation of a proper buggy has no fixed roof or conventional doors, while the free-standing wheels fitted with off-road tyres and open side sills dominate the overall look.
The buggy will be revealed at the 89th International Geneva Motor Show (7-17 March 2019).
