Volkswagen Beetle E-Bugster could enter production line

Although the carmaker isn’t slipping a word on whether it will put the car into production, designers believe it has a strong chance to do so.

“This is a serious proposal for a speedster Beetle and I am sure it will come for production”, said designer Mark Lichter, “we just need to find the business case”.

Lichter revealed that for the creation of the E-Bugster concept he was inspired by his own Porsche 964 911 Speedster.

The car is powered by an electric motor that generates 114 HP and 270 Nm of torque (199 lb-ft).

The lithium-ion battery takes just 30 minutes to charge up to 80 percent.
