    I've given up waiting for a New Microbus, in the same vein as the New Beetle (now just called the Beetle). VW had in the years past shown concepts, which at least had a similarity to the original. The claim that this version mirrors 'the charm of classic VW vans" is as far fetched as their mileage and charging time claims.
    This is what it looked like in 2011-ish. I wish they went with this design.

    That was a great concept @desmolicious - scuttlebutt I read said that VW couldn't get it to economically pass the crash test requirements.

    Is it REALLY electric or is it powered by coal or steam, maybe a hamster on a little wheel?
