News Fully Electric Bugatti Chiron by 2024

Fully Electric Bugatti Chiron by 2024

Officially official: Volkswagen and Bugatti will build and sell a 100% electric version of the Chiron within five years.

We’re serious and we’re not making this up! In November of 2018, Volkswagen Auto Group shared a document outlining their future plans for e-mobility. They explain that in 2018, the group now offers a dozen or so models of the electric variety and that by 2025, that number will triple.

While we’ve all read about VW’s ID products, drooled over Porsche’s Taycan and now lust for Audi’s e-tron GT concept, somewhere right down at the bottom of the document, available for all to see, there’s a little box that looks like this:

“Bugatti is also taking its time to launch its first electrically powered vehicle. The Bugatti Chiron is expected to be ready by 2024.”

This little statement opens up a galaxy-worth of questions starting how much power will this thing have? Range? Price? Will it replace the petrol version or be sold along side it? Will it crush the Tesla Roadster, which manages the 0-60mph sprint in 2 seconds, and/or make it to market before it?

One way or another, the coming of an electric Bugatti Chiron is official. We’re thinking three or four electric motors, 2,000+ horsepower, an 800+ km range, a $2-million price tag to start and a 0-60 time somewhere around 1.7 seconds.

Any bets?
