First it was the Combi Microbus and come this March at the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen will be reviving another legend – the Dune Buggy.

The fully electric bug will be based on the modular electric drive (MEB) platform, which also forms the basis for the new electric Microbus and the I.D. Crozz. The original buggy was based on the chassis of the Beetle.

“A buggy is more than a car. It is vibrancy and energy on four wheels,” said
Head Designer at Volkswagen, Klaus Bischoff.

The new electric bug will do without doors and a roof, while its free-standing wheels fitted with off-road tyres.

The Volkswagen I.D. Crozz is for production in 2020 followed by the all-electric Kombi van in 2022. Both vehicles are earmarked to fulfill Volkswagen’s pledge to sell one million electric vehicles annually by 2025.
