As it is clear from the name of the novelty, it will receive an all-electric power unit. Also, the kid can boast no hefty off-road abilities.

No roof? No doors? No problems. Apparently such a thought came to the heads of engineers of the German brand. The only thing that protects the driver and passenger in the new Volkswagen I.D. Buggy is a reinforced windscreen, Targa back plate and a folding black tarp that is reserved in case of rain or other bad weather. The interior is completely protected from weathering with waterproof paint.

I.D. Buggy demonstrates the versatility of a modular platform, which, as the name implies, is completely electric.

Energy in the power plant (two axial engines) comes from a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 62 kWh. The total power is 201 horsepower (349 Nm), which is transmitted to all four wheels. New can accelerate to 100 km / h in 7.2 seconds.

Cruising Volkswagen I.D. Buggy is 249 kilometers (measured according to WLTP standards). Yes, this is not very much, but this little car can show itself well on the roads. Its high ground clearance and extended wings conceal a set of 18-inch wheels fitted with BF Goodrich All-Terrain TA tires (255/50 at the front, 285/60 at the rear). The flat aluminum bottom ensures safe movement over rough terrain. And the two red steel tow hooks built into the front bumper can pull the Volkswagen I.D. Buggy in case it gets stuck somewhere.

So far, there is no data on whether VW will produce a serial version of the Volkswagen I.D. Buggy or not. In any case, it would be great.
