Volkswagen may have faced their fair share of negative publicity this year, but that’s not stopping them from coming up with some new ideas and concepts. Even though they are in the midst of fixing the emissions cheating engines, the German company has teased a new electric concept before CES 2016 kicks off. Rumor has it that the new Volkswagen EV concept coming to the 2016 Consumer Electronic Show might very well be the spanking new electric version of the classic Microbus with a single-charge range of more than 300 miles.
The first teaser image you see above features a boxy shape which fuels definitely fuels the Microbus rumors. The illuminated grille and squinting headlights suggest a more futuristic design and design cues that pay homage to the classic ride. Volkswagen’s Chairman will debut the EV during his CES keynote on January 5, focusing on “the latest developments in electromobility as well as the next generation of connectivity.”
