VW Shows First Sketches Of New Electric Vehicle

Volkswagen has just shown its all-electric study through a set of sketches.

A few days ago, the German car manufacturer teased the model ahead of its 2016 Paris Auto Show debut, saying “the vehicle is as revolutionary as the Beetle was seven decades ago before it evolved into the world’s best-selling car of the last century”.

So this won’t be just another eye-grabbing concept made for showing off. Instead, Volkswagen will put it into production around the year 2019. This study is the second step in Volkswagen’s plan to confine the “Dieselgate” saga in the history books by focusing its resources on electric vehicles.

Visually, it looks like a mash-up between the Up! and the Golf, sporting sliding rear doors and futuristic accents. According to Autocar, the production car based on it will be a true folks-wagon, offering Passat-rivaling interior space in a Golf-size suit.

Moreover, the vehicle will be underpinned by the new modular electrification kit (MEB), and offer between 250 and 300 miles (402 km – 482 km) of traveling range on a single charge that’ll take only 15 minutes to complete.
