Volkswagen enthusiasts will welcome the sight of a big-plate VW badge, made famous by its presence on the Type 2, or Microbus as it came to be known in the U.S. Unlike the rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive Type 2, the Bulli gets front-wheel drive from its front-mounted electric motor. Volkswagen claims impressive numbers for the concept, such as a 186-mile range and a 1-hour charging time. Volkswagen unveiled the Bulli at the 2011 Geneva auto show.
Volkswagen Bulli concept is powered by an electric motor makes 114 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 11.4 seconds with a top speed of 87 mph. The electric motor is triggered by lithium-ion battery that allows it to travel a total of 186.4 miles between the two charges.The Bulli can accommodate up to six passengers with the construction of a vast and airy. It also has an infotainment system that only controlled by Apple iPad. If the start of production of Volkswagen Bulli would be the first all-electric car in its segment.
As with most concept cars reviled, there has been a lot of controversy, which is of course why they’re concepts, and do need a potential user opinion. However, a great deal of people seem to really enjoy they Bulli Concept, myself included. I love the reminiscent feel of that old Type 2, yet pumped full of new, elegant and modern feelings. The interior is absolutely stunning. So basic and ascetically pleasing. Many reviews of the concept describe sitting in the car as one of the most comfortable designs that they have ever tested and from pictures you can see why. I would be very happy to see this car meet production and the market.
