VW E-Bugster EV speedster revealed in

Seen previously at the Detroit Show, The VW E-Bugster makes its debut at the Auto China in Beijing. The E-Bugster is an electrified Beetle Speedster that lithium-ion batteries (positioned the front seats) to power an 85 kW motor. A quick-charge feature the E-Bugster to be recharged in 35 minutes at charging stations.

At home, the of the E-Bugster can also be charged a conventional electric outlet. The for the charge cable is located the normal fuel-filler door the C-pillar area. Will it see Not in this form.

A new Beetle has been shown in Europe, but a Beetle roadster would out VW’s line-up quite don’tcha think? More and one pic after the jump.


Asian premiere of the E-Bugster an Beetle!

Zero emissions was conceptualised as two-seat speedster

The it is the successor to an automotive icon. The new car is the sportiest Beetle ever. Now is showing, in an Asian premiere at China in Beijing, how this can also be transferred to a Beetle pure electric drive.

The E-Bugster was specially designed for mission: a two-seat Beetle 85 kW in power, 0 to 100 km/h in 10.8 with zero emissions yet the of proportions.

Blue-e-Motion for a clean

The central electric module of the has an innovative design; it weighs 80 kg. The energy for powering the electric is stored in a lithium-ion battery modules are housed in a space-saving behind the front seats. The s energy capacity of 28.3 kWh a range of at least 180 km in the urban

And even in an enormous country China, for the majority of commuters is sufficient to drive to their and return home. Since the has a quick charging function, the can be refuelled within 35 minutes at charging stations. At home, the of the E-Bugster can also be charged a conventional electric outlet.

The for the charge cable is located the normal fuel door the C-pillar.

Thanks to a new Combined System, the E-Bugster can be filled up via one interface using any available modalities. Possible are:

charging with AC current

DC charging at charging stations charge)

This will be based on a uniform industry standard for the of future electric vehicles will be available to all manufacturers. And standardisation goes beyond the itself: in the Combined Charging the charge controller and the electrical must be able to handle all types. This will costs and simplify widespread implementation of electric mobility.

the battery while braking

how much energy the driver of the is requesting with the electric at any moment is shown in a power Instruments also include a range indicator and a display the battery s charge state. new in the Beetle is an instrument that the driver the intensity of battery Regeneration refers to the recovery of energy: as soon as the driver s leaves the accelerator pedal brakes, kinetic energy is into electricity, which is in the battery.

This increases the range of the E-Bugster. By the way, calls the complete electric unit Blue-e-Motion.

Visions versions

Bugster? That familiar. Of course: Ragster! was in January 2005 in Detroit, Volkswagen presented a New Beetle as a with a swept-back ragtop roof) the Ragster. A design for the Beetle of tomorrow wider, sportier.

In 2005, the slogan for the s feasibility was expressed as: Everything is In 2012, it had advanced to: Everything is Because the idea of the Ragster lower, sportier became a (with the exception of the ragtop) in 2011 in the current production So, what does the name actually signify? That is to explain: a combination of the E for electric the American nickname for the Beetle, Bug and the type speedster that a low, open-top two-seater.

Proportions of a sports car

The E-Bugster is a that could hardly be to look more dynamic. it is a sports car. It has a height of than 1,400 mm, which is 90 mm less than that of the top Beetle. And the production model looks really powerful its sharply sculpted proportions. The s width (1,838 mm) grew by 30 mm, its length (4,278) remained the as that of the production car.

The displays unique dynamic from every viewing Design details of the production were supplemented by new styling In its stance on the road, the concept car as though it were cast as a piece. There is a very reason for this: in developing the model introduced in October the Beetle design team had considered all potential derivatives for models on its radar screen of

And that is in part how a speedster an E-motor evolved, the E-Bugster.

front and rear

In front, it is the and wide windscreen that the eye; its glass extends to a point above the A-pillars. The which is equipped with LED is also distinguished by the highly bumpers of the production Beetle: integrated the daytime running to the left and right of the central air as bands of LED lights in a C-shape mirrored on the right side). since the e-up! concept car was in Europe, this form of running light has been a on Volkswagen electric vehicle

These styling elements appear in modified form as in the rear bumper, which was redesigned. The rear windscreen of the proves that the rear of a speedster do not need to restrict like the arrow slits in walls: it is extremely wide.

side profile

A speedster swept-back windows and a low roof, and the has them. First, let us survey the car s The wheels beneath the flared housings are 20-inch versions of the Beetle Twister wheels, with 235/35 R 20 tyres.

From the side sill, the s gaze moves upwards the large, smooth continuous of the door and the contour line the door handle that as though it were carved a knife. Just a few centimetres this point, the Beetle a speedster: designers lengthened the strip of the lower window towards the rear; it now runs (as it did on the New Cabriolet) once around the from A-pillar to A-pillar. The top of the Bug extends in a low arc above this line. Following the roof in classic speedster style is the border of the side windows. The between the chrome lower border and the uppermost roof is a low 400 mm.

And that is how it should be for a speedster!


The combination of high-tech and dynamic performance is also in the interior. Sport seats and a centre tunnel in body underscore the sportiness of the E-Bugster. The use of as the material for the door handles and guides, and the lightweight construction of the steering wheel also a direct connection between the and interior.

Starting the E-Bugster is a unique the Start button not only the drive system; it also a light show into first, the interior is immersed in a light, then a blue It begins as a light pulse in the cluster; from there the emanates as a thin line of just one millimetre wide, into the door window and around the air nozzles a kind of awakening of the E-Bugster.
