VW has officially unveiled the VW E-Bugster Concept at the Beijing Motor Show. Have a look! Hot rod.
Power is generated from an electric motor that produces 116PS (85kW / 114hp) enabling the speedster to accelerate from 0-100kph (0-62mph) in 10.8 seconds.
The lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 28.3 kWh and can be recharged by standard or ultra-fast DC charging methods. It also makes use of a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) similar to the F1 system to recharge as well.
The E-Bugster is 90mm lower and 30mm longer than the production Beetle coupe giving it a more sporty outlook. The design maintains the Beetle DNA and comes with LED headlights. Additionally, the C-shape you see either side of the central air intake features a line of LED daytime running lights as well.
