Volkswagen Bulli Concept EV Debuts in Geneva

March 1, 2011

Inspired by the iconic Volkswagen Microbus, the Volkswagen Bulli concept electric vehicle is creating some buzz at the Geneva Motor Show.

The new Bulli is powered by an electric motor and fitted with six seats and infotainment control via iPad.

The zero-emissions vehicle gets up to 186.4 miles on a single battery charge. The Bulli's electric motor outputs 85 kW of power and 199 lb.-ft of torque. As is usual with this type of drive, its maximum forces are generated from standstill. The silent motor is supplied with energy from a lithium-ion battery with a maximum storage capacity of 40 kWh. The new Bulli accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 11.5 seconds, and its top speed is 87 mph (electronically limited), Volkswagen said.
