Volkswagen BUDD-e Reportedly Production Bound
Volkswagen unveiled at the 2016 CES in Las Vegas the BUDD-e concept – an all electric car with the new MEB modular platform, two motors and a 101 kWh battery.
The MEB will be platform for several new electric models, but will BUDD-e, in some form, reach the production stage?
According to CAR magazine there will be production model similar to the BUDD-e concept (more or less):
“Dr Volkmar Tanneberger, head of electronic development and the driving force behind the BUDD-e concept, told CAR magazine’s Ben Barry:
‘You will see a car that looks a lot like this, on the MEB platform, reach production. I can’t say exactly when, but 2020 or thereabouts.”
