Volkswagen E-Bugster Concept to show up in Detroit

Volkswagen has revealed this cool-looking E-Bugster Concept ahead of its official début at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Power for the purely electrically powered E-Bugster Concept comes via the same unit as seen in the Golf Blue-e-Motion. Fed by a lithium-ion battery, the motor generates a maximum power output of 85 kW (114 hp) and a continuous 50 kW (67 hp). Maximum torque from a stop is an impressive 270 Nm (199 lb/ft), while the E-Bugster’s range can cover at least 150 kilometres. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is carried out in 10.9 seconds.

Visually, the Concept bares many similarities to the new Beetle apart from a three inch roof chop and lower screen which results in a sportier, more slippery appearance.

At the front there’s a pair of C-shaped LED daytime running lights, while at the rear the boot lid receives a subtle spoiler.
