VW to put concept electric mini-bus "I.D. Buzz" into production

Groovy!

"After the presentations at the global motor shows in Detroit and Geneva, we received a large number of letters and emails from customers who said, 'please build this car'," Volkswagen CEO Dr Herbert Diess said in Pebble Beach. The Board of Management chose Pebble Beach as the location to make its announcement because, as Diess explained: "The Microbus has long been part of the California lifestyle. Now we're bringing it back by reinventing it as an electric vehicle."

Most, if not all, VW's will have some sort of electric propulsion soon.

That brings back memories of the Summer of Love (1967). I was a bit young (14) but I hung out in the Haight wandering around as a hippie-wannabe on weekends. Then on Monday I'd put my good clothes on and go to my Jesuit high school in San Jose! I wanted a microbus back in those days; this one might sell well to my generation as we relive the old days.

Not coming until 2022, no announced price.

I like it, but I still think it needs round headlamps.

Looks way small. wheres the 3rd row? I could skip the electric for more room. I dig the idea of electric, but not really on a vehicle thats designed to go long distances camping? Not a lot of plugs in the middle of nowhere.

Yep, needs a third row. Otherwise it's just another SUV and we have more than enough of those.
