The Iconic VW Microbus Pulls Up as a Rolling Digital Hub [CES 2016]
The van concept at #CES2016 explores content sharing and home connectivity
With the dark diesel cheat clouds still hanging low over Volkswagen’s Wolfsburg HQ, the automaker went back to a tried and true model to generate some positive buzz at CES 2016. The BUDD-e is VW’s vision for a 21st century electric Microbus, showcasing digital technology aimed at production vehicles in the future.
Reboots of the much loved original Microbus have become something of a carrot on a stick for the automotive press. This is the third ‘microbus’ concept VW has produced since 2001, never following up with production on any prior ideas.
