Volkswagen BUDD-e Is The Electric Microbus Of The Future
With BUDD-e, Volkswagen demonstrates what electric mobility could be like by the year 2019. Volkswagenâs new MEB platform will enable a series production car to have pure electric range that is on par with todayâs gasoline-powered cars by the end of the decade. The time required to charge the batteries to 80 percent of capacity is anticipated to be reduced to about 15 minutes by then, marking an operational breakthrough for EVs.
BUDD-e is the first concept car developed by the Volkswagen Group that is underpinned by the new Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB). This architecture heralds a fundamental change in electric cars and ushers in a revolution in automotive technology, leaving todayâs fossil-fuel powered internal combustion engines and drivetrains in the past. This significant innovation will lead to huge changes in the development of electric-powered Volkswagens in the years to come, from body and interior design, to packaging and drive characteristics.
