Volkswagen Teases New Electric Concept — The Return Of The Microbus?

Written By:

German carmaker Volkswagen has a released a few teaser images for its upcoming electric concept which is inspired by the Iconic Volkswagen Type 2 from the 1950s and 60s. The Volkswagen ID microbus Concept will make its debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.

The forthcoming addition to the ID electric vehicle lineup will be the first of many electric concepts from the ID range that will hit the show floors in 2017.

The new concept will also be the second electric MPV concept that VW has unveiled in the US after the Budd-e concept that was unveiled at CES 2016.

Volkswagen describes the upcoming addition to the ID range as a 'space concept' which refers to the carmaker's intention to provide as much space as possible inside the new car for passengers.

The teaser images reveal the front and rear styling with horizontal LED headlamps and tail lamps which look similar to the ones found on the ID concept from the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

Also present is an upright front end with a vertical windscreen and minimal overhang along with an illuminated VW badge and V-shaped feature line similar to the one on the original microbus.
