Volkswagen E-Bugster concept


This is the new Volkswagen E-Bugster concept. It has a three-inch (7.4 cm) chopped roof and 20-inch wheels. It features an electric motor producing 114 hp (85 kW / 116 PS) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) of torque from a 695 lb (315 kg) lithium-ion battery pack located in the rear. A quick charge allowing 80% of the battery capacity only takes 30 minutes.

The exterior features modified front and rear bumpers along with VW's e-motion trademark LED daytime running lights. Inside, the only change is a new instrument cluster (where the tachometer would be) with an "energy consumption display", additional gauges for the battery charge, and range indicator.

Expect offical details later today.
