"Ars Technica scribe Jonathan Gitlin was on hand at Pebble Beach and claims company officials told him Volkswagen is actively considering building the car if a business case can be made for it. Or they might sell the skateboard consisting of a battery, motor, control systems, brakes, and suspension to other manufacturers and let them put their own bodywork on top of it. Either way, it seems safety certification would be a major hurdle to turning the ID. BUGGY into a production car."
What’s New With the ID Buggy
Well firstly, it’s all-electric. Great that it is and also a step in the direction promised by the bosses over at VW. It has two pedals.
Press play and you go forward. Press stop and you will stop. The pedals are quite funky and have the look of play and stop buttons on a normal music device. The best feature, a portable speaker from car to beach, and even can be taken on a meet and greet.
A real party car. Hopefully one day in the year 3030 there still is a beach, no walking dead and the beach buggy is autonomous. Then its the ultimate transporter. Sporting the retro Buggy look with a futuristic swag. It is one they should really get on the production line soon.
Functioning Like A Dune Buggy – New Tech
"The ID. BUGGY is based on the MEB electric car chassis Volkswagen has developed for its new battery-powered cars. The 3,500 pound concept has a single 204 horsepower motor driving the rear wheels through a continuously variable transmission. A second motor driving the front wheels could be added as well. With no roof and little in the way of side impact protection, it is unlikely the car will ever go into production. (via: cleantechnica.com)"
At the moment it’s been confirmed it won’t be in production with safety and other issues all concerns at the moment. Therefore, VW’s leniency to hand out the goods under the hood and secrets beneath the skin.
