Auburn, MA, drivers of a certain age--or any buggy enthusiast--will fondly recall the days of the Meyers Manx in the 1960s. The classic two-seat, open air dune buggy was the ultimate beachcombing, summertime-fun vehicle.

Volkswagen offered up a 21st-century reboot of that classic at the Geneva International Motor Show: the ID.BUGGY concept. The all-electric concept comfortable going anywhere when the sun is shining

Enough Power for a Trip to the Beach and Back

The last thing Worcester drivers would want when taking an ID.BUGGY to the beach is to keep recharging it in order to get some quality drive time. That wouldn't be an issue with the ID.BUGGY, which features a 62-kilowatt-hour battery that powers a 201-horsepower electric motor. The resulting 155-mile range is enough power for the longest days at the beach.

Customizable as Needed

The Meyers Manx buggies were beloved for their versatility and customizable platform. The ID.BUGGY retains that spirit, despite being an electric vehicle. A lack of sensors means the body can be easily removed and updated. Westborough drivers could easily add another motor to make it all-wheel drive, and it could possible be configured for four passengers!

The Volkswagen ID.BUGGY is a fun look at what future summers could look like in Shrewsbury, MA. The electric design and aggressive, all-terrain tires could take you almost anywhere you dream of going.

It remains to be seen if the ID.BUGGY will ever progress beyond the concept stage. But if the idea of an electric Volkswagen intrigues you, contact Patrick Motors Volkswagen today about the e-Golf Hatchback, or keep an eye on this space for more Volkswagen concept vehicles!
