The beach buggy returns! Respect

VW is doing its bit at reigniting the retro vehicles we love most. This is their latest - a modern, electric take on the beach buggy. Expect it in Geneva this March!

The coast should prep itself before it wrecks itself! Yes, Joburgers will have a new toy to act beachy in soon enough and this is it: The e-buggy, an electric and retro rebirth of our favourite beach toy - the beach buggy! How cool is that? Very.

And genius too by South Africa's favourite motoring brand. Indeed, VW are deliberately resurrecting emotional cars and electrifying them to show us that we can all love electric cars in the same way that our fathers loved all things petrol. In fact, it's exactly what they're doing:

“A buggy is more than a car," says Klaus Bischoff, head designer at Volkswagen, "It is vibrancy and energy on four wheels. These attributes are embodied by the new e-buggy, which demonstrates how a modern, non-retro interpretation of a classic can look and, more than anything else, the emotional bond that electric mobility can create.”
