A symbol 60, favourite transport of hippie, and it is simply improbable successful and, the main thing, necessary to millions buyers the car. It is no wonder that since then Volkswagen tries to revive cult model, offering all new concept cars. Didn't become an exception and a showroom in Geneva where Germans have shown the next prototype. I do not know, how hippie, but modern youth (anyway, European) such reincarnation of Microbus would approach quite! Stylish bichromatic color, as at the far ancestor (in known version Samba), the big wheels, an interior with iPad which serves there as the touch extension housing of steering minor functions. And, of course, two triple sofa for which the machine in length should be made of 3,99 meters more widely Golf.

Whether will be Volkswagen Bulli, so have named new concept, the population explosion reason, it is not known. But that Bulli makes thrifty use of the nature is the fact. And all because it's electric! However it wasn't reflected at all negatively in dynamics – 85-kw the motor (116 h.p., 260 Nanometers) is dispersed 1450-kilogram car to hundred for 11,5 seconds only. The maximum speed is limited at level of 140 km/h. But the declared cruising range «on batteries» – up to 300 kilometers.

However, Volkswagen admit that in case of the positive decision to a series will go Bulli with usual petrol and diesel engines. For Germans it's not a first attempt of revival the models which have become icons of time. Especially, soon on the market will appear a new generation of Beetle. So why not to add a nostalgic ruler with amusing bus?
