“The modern, non-retro interpretation of a classic”
The legend is set to be revived: The study of the ID. Buggy will be celebrating its premiere at the 89th International Motor Show in Geneva. The conceptional approach is based on the famous historical models from California: While they were rolling on Beetle chassis, the Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB), a platform developed specifically for electric vehicles, proves to be just as flexible.
The authentic reinterpretation of the original has been achieved without a fixed roof and classic doors. In addition, freestanding wheels with off-road tyres and open side skirts dominate the overall impression.
“A buggy is more than a car. It’s an attitude towards life. This is notably embodied in the new ID. Buggy: It visualises a modern, non-retro interpretation of such a classic and, most of all, that electric mobility can be very emotional,” states Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design at Volkswagen.
