    Geneva 2011: VW Bulli Concept

    Volkswagen Bulli Concept is a Microbus redux for Geneva

    Remember the 2001 Volkswagen Microbus concept? For those who need reminding, it was a new look at an old icon – one that got enthusiasts and the automotive press all hot and bothered right after we ticked over into the new millennium. Sadly, management changes at Volkswagen killed the concept before it could become a reality.

    Now, a decade later, VW is trying out the concept again at this year's Geneva Motor Show. This time it's called the Volkswagen Bulli, and like its 2001 ancestor, this one is designed to carry on the legacy of the brand's famous Microbus. This Geneva concept packs a 113-horsepower electric motor drawing power from a lithium-ion battery pack. At full charge, the Bulli is said to be theoretically good for 186 miles before a recharge. When it's time for more juice, VW says the Bulli can be fully charged in less than an hour.

    Silly. I would rather they come out with a true microbus successor. 3 rows would be so much more practical

    I think this is VWs sub-compact MPV.

    My thought was correct. It has a wheelbase of 102 inches. That is around the length of the B-Max.

    I was going to say the same thing. This looks like a possible future Soul/xB/Cube competitor for VW. I think VW should go for it. It definitely looks better than the xB and Cube.
