VW considers making an electric Beetle

Latest news

    It wouldn’t represent that much of a leap for VW. The company’s inaugural ID concept was a rear-wheel drive hatchback, so it could repurpose that powertrain for the Beetle’s retro coupe chassis much as the current Beetle is essentially a Golf coupe. The ID puts out the equivalent of 168HP and gets up to 370 miles on a charge, although we wouldn’t count on those figures remaining the same.

    A firmer decision is expected to come when VW’s board votes on ways to expand its fledgling electric car strategy beyond the 15 models planned so far (only five of which will be VW-badged). However, it’s hard to imagine VW turning down an electric Beetle. The Bug is virtually synonymous with VW, and an EV edition of the car could serve as a flagship that draws customers into showrooms.
