Volkswagen's classic Microbus will return as a modern electric vehicle

Hippies, rejoice: The Volkswagen Microbus is set to return, and with some modern upgrades to boot. Buzz’ concept, which combined retro styling inspired by the classic Microbus with a modern electric powertrain and other amenities, has the green light for production. At the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, VW announced that it will hit showrooms in 2022. That might explain why, according to VW CEO Herbert Diess, the company received a large number of letters and emails from customers saying “please build this car” following the I.D. Some of these specs might change for the production version, but a range of over 200 miles seems like a must in this post-Chevrolet Bolt EV/Tesla Model 3 market.
