Volkswagen Electric Dune Buggy Concept

In 1964 Bruce Meyers introduced the Meyers Manx, a fiberglass body on a Volkswagen Beetle chassis, and created one of the wildest combinations of German engineering and American design ever imagined. The dune buggy has been synonymous with VW ever since, and the company's venerable flat-four has powered everything from rail buggies to fiberglass kit cars. VW has come up with their own take on the buggy, replacing the rear-mounted flat-four with an electric drivetrain and bringing the classic into the modern age. Built on VW's MEB modular electric platform used on the upcoming ID hatchback, the Dune Buggy demonstrates the variety of cars that can be built with it. With VW killing the New Beetle, the Dune Buggy concept points at the possibility of a successor to the massively popular original.
