Volkswagen E-Bugster

Detroit Motor Show 2012: Volkswagen E-Bugster

Volkswagen's 'crazy car' at the Detroit Motor Show is based on the new Beetle and called the E-Bugster.

"This is a crazy car, it's fun, it's sporting and it's American looking," said VW Group design head Walter da Silva at the Detroit Motor Show. It's also staggeringly badly packaged Walter, but then he is a designer.
What this unashamed battery-electric hot-rod Beetle concept tells us is that VW is serious about a Beetle Cabriolet, which will likely have a more conventional fabric hood, plus that it is serious about the Beetle R, whose one-inch wider body was also seen on the E-Bugster.
With a 28.3kWh lithium-ion battery pack parked behind the seats, the all-electric E-Bugster has a range of 110 miles, and will accelerate from 0-60mph in 10.9sec.
Also on show was the Jetta hybrid model, which is unlikely to make it to Europe where the diesel Jetta provides the same kind of fuel economy with less cost and complication.
