Volkswagen just re-released everyone’s favorite hippy-van…but now it’s electric.

Volkswagen just re released everyone s favorite hippy van but now it s electric


 Board member, Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neusser spilled the beans at the recent New York Auto Show that Volkswagen is in fact working on producing an electric version of the classic camper bus. 

Volkswagen may be re-introducing the cult-classic with a modern twist of sustainability to create the ultimate form of hippy transportation. Neusser spoke to Autocar about the importance of maintaining a number of “very important” original hippy-bus features. “First the wide, solid, D-Pillar, second the boxy design of the centre section and, thirdly, the front end must have a very short overhang. The distance from the A-pillar to the front end must be very short.”

We can only keep our fingers crossed that it maintains the original aesthetic, unlike previous vehicle concepts.
