Volkswagen does a tech-savvy throwback with their ID. Buggy concept vehicle

If you were around the beach scene during the 60s and 70s - a truly iconic time for the Volkswagen brand - you hopefully got to see a Volkswagen dune buggy moving across the sand and giving its passengers one heck of day! There's still no idea if Volkswagen will ever create such a vehicle again for production, but we're happy enough to see the Volkswagen ID. Buggy concept model they released at the Geneva Auto Show.

This concept blends old-school styling with new-school technology. You'll immediately notice the 'dune buggy' look and imagine yourself touring Centennial CO and Littleton CO. Instead of running on gas like past versions, though, the ID. Buggy gets its power from a 62-kWh lithium-ion battery and electric motor. Talk about EV fun! Engineers got the range up to 155 miles, so you could spend a lot of time cruising through Greenwood Village CO and Lakewood CO before needing to visit one of the many Denver CO charging stations.

Once "inside" the ID. Buggy, you'd be greeted to a futuristic and minimalist dash layout and steering wheel. The lack of outward technology also means you can safely hose out the vehicle after a day going over dunes. In case of a rollover, you'd have a targa bar and the windshield is extra strong.

Production Plans?

Just like with the Tarok concept truck we blogged about earlier, there are no plans to bring the ID. Buggy concept to production, though we do hope Volkswagen reconsiders this stance, as we know a lot of shoppers would be eager to buy one!

Until they do that, you can still make your current new Volkswagen model more functional and adventure-ready by ordering Genuine Volkswagen Parts and Accessories. Stop into our Aurora CO dealership to get that order in.
