Volkswagen ID. BUGGY — 2019
The Volkswagen ID. BUGGY was one of the most fun vehicles introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show — the latest addition to VW’s series of electric concept vehicles. Both retro and modern, the ID.BUGGY concept takes inspiration from classic California dune buggies of the 1960s, complete with big 18-inch wheels shod with all-terrain tires. In true beach-buggy fashion, the concept has no doors and no roof. The ID.BUGGY’s open interior offers plenty of room but only seating for two. Built on VW’s new MEB modular electric drive platform, the ID. BUGGY features a rear-mounted 201-horsepower electric motor driving the rear wheels. This layout mimics the 1960s Beetle-based dune buggies with their engines mounted in back; an additional electric motor could be added to the front axle for 4-wheel-drive capability.
