VW Electric Dune Buggy Get a Prototype

It could be fun to drive … it is a dune buggy at the end of the day!

Based on the Meyers Manx dune buggies of the 60s, it’s underpinnings are the MEB platform. The modular battery layout allows the automaker use the same vehicle base to build different sized EVs by adding or subtracting battery packs. But unlike the CrozzID.3 or even the Buzz, the Buggy is a vehicle of whimsy. It doesn’t have doors, a trunk, a roof (although you can get a cover in case it rains), or even a back seat. But none of that mattered while I was driving it down the road.

Being behind the wheel of Volkswagen’s open-air dune buggy is outstanding. It’s probably the most basic vehicle you can drive legally on the road. The interior is just two seats and space in the back for your beach towels and cooler. There’s no infotainment system. There are no climate controls. Whatever the weather is like, that’s your climate.
