VW's Concept Electric Microbus Goes 270 Miles On One Charge


The crowds in Detroit were literally buzzing about the appropriately named VW ID Buzz. The electric concept car isn't that far fetched from reality. While the new micro but has some stylistic throwbacks to the iconic T1, it features a ton of new changes. The bus frame is ideal for housing plenty of batteries to give the bus the juice it needs to last 270 miles on a single charge. With 370 hp it can go from 0 to 60 in about 5 seconds. VW hopes to include a wireless inductive charging feature that will allow the bus to recharge by simply parking over a special parking space. Last but not least, the iconic VW logo glows with the flip of a switch!
