Volkswagen might make an Electric Microbus that actually looks like iconic VW Microbus

Volkswagen today is teasing some images of a new version of its electric minibus platform that it will reveal at the N. American Car Show in Detroit next month (if not sooner at CES). I know these are just a renderings of a preproduction model, but I have to say this gets me way more excited than last year’s EV Bus concept, the BUDD-E, which is apparently going to get built in 2020.

In the images above and 2 more below, you’ll see some iconic VW bus lines and logo mixed with some of those gaudy BUDD-E  accents.

VW unveils its all-electric microbus concept: BUDD-e with a massive 101 kWh battery for 373 miles of range [Gallery]

At CES in Las Vegas last night, Volkswagen unveiled its latest all-electric concept vehicle: BUDD-e, a battery-powered microbus. BUDD-e is the first vehicle designed on Volkswagen’s new electric platform called MEB, which is short for Modular Electric Toolkit.

BUDD-e is still an early concept, but the company says that the technology it’s showcasing should give a good idea of VW’s electric vehicles in 2019.
