Volkswagen Group Components and eClassics have succeeded in combining automotive classics with modern technology to create an electrified Beetle.

Volkswagen Beetle of past years has an electric version. To “reformat” the legendary model, specialists had to resort to modern automotive components: batteries, transmission, etc. Moreover, according to the developers, other classic cars may appear electrified versions. When creating them, in all likelihood, the MEB modular platform will be used, which the brand uses today to create new electric cars.

 Volkswagen Beetle is planning to organize the public debut of the electric car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

 It is known that the battery system of the “green” Volkswagen Beetle immediately includes 14 modules. It is built into the bottom of the car, the total weight of which reaches 1,280 kilograms. Up to 50 km / h, the e-Beetle accelerates in four seconds, and its maximum speed is 150 km / h. On a single charge, an electric Beetle can travel 200 kilometers.
