After getting incredibly excited to hear Volkswagen Chairman Herbert Diess confirm production of an all new electric Microbus, I decided to ask around at the Tiguan drive event this week—only to be told that VW won’t confirm or discuss it now. That’s pretty standard, if just a bit odd considering the chairman’s…
Finally, after five concept cars, a ton of screaming and stress tears, and plenty of stagnant potential, Volkswagen seems interested in bringing the latest I.D. Buzz bus concept to production by 2022. You can’t tell, but I’m definitely cautiously squinting right now.
If you've aways wanted an old VW Microbus but felt it was just too stylish, too German, and too fast, boy are you in luck. Because it looks like an Austrian company named Palten-Diesel made a pretty close diesel Microbus knockoff that would be perfect for you.
I'm sure for many of you, the real news here is that the old bread-loaf-shaped, rear-engined hippie wagon is still being produced at all. Well, it is, in Brazil, and will be ending its 56 year run in that country with a nostalgic final "Last Edition," of which 600 will be built.
