Volkswagen has displayed the Bulli Concept – a modern version of the famous minibus Transporter T1 of the 1950 model year. The outward “grandson – grandpa” similarity mainly lies in the two-colour paint, the huge hood badge and the round headlights.

The car is quite compact: 3990 mm long, 1750 mm wide and 170 mm high. The wheelbase is 2580 mm – a bit longer that the Golf’s. Like the Transporter, the Bulli is capable of carrying 6 people: 3 on the front couch and 3 on the rear. The interior is designed in minimalistic style; the role of the central console with navigation system, infortaining devices and a phone is played by the removable iPad. There is neither tachometer nor gearstick – as is on electric vehicles. The rear seats can be easily folded, allowing it to take 1600 l of luggage, while with all seats the boot volume is 370 l.

Unlike the rear-engined grandpa, the Bulli is front-engine and FWD. The engine is electric as is mentioned above, with the power of 85 kw. The batteries are Li-Ion with 40 kwh. Weighing 1450 kg, the car can attain 100km/h in 11.5 seconds with a top speed of 140 km/h.
