Bulli for us
This week at the Geneva Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled a new concept vehicle that harkens back to the quintessential hippie vehicle, the microbus. The 2011 version is markedly different from its predecessor which was last produced in the U.S. in 1979.
As cool as this concept is, Volkswagen has a history of teasing us with interesting ideas and not producing them, so don't hold your breath on this, but it does make sense. It fills a very big hole in their lineup, it introduces electric power to the brand, and it helps them recapture a piece of their heritage that they've ignored for the past three decades.
