ID. Buggy

First revealed as a concept at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, the ID. Buggy takes inspiration from the Californian Dune buggies of the sixties and is the fifth concept car based on Volkswagen's MEB platform.

Whilst the original buggies were based on the chassis of the legendary VW Beetle, the ID. Buggy is based on the progressive chassis of the MEB platform with a high-voltage battery integrated into the vehicle floor.

The concept car is purely a 2-seater but imagined as being able to be converted to a 2 + 2 seater and is manufactured from a mixture of aluminium, steel, and plastic. The modular design allows the upper body to be detached from the MEB chassis and a lithium-ion battery powers the 150 kW/204PS electric motor in the rear of the vehicle.
