Rendered Electric MK1 Volkswagen Golf Needs To Live

Volkswagen will bring the retro-cool ID. Buzz. Might we suggest this as the ID.2?


  • Artist takes the ID.3’s footprint as the base of the design.

  • There’s a market for retro electric cars.


For the most part, the shift to electric cars will not be boring. Super- and hypercars notwithstanding, many mainstream EVs promise decent performance and novel or innovative styling. While modern design is necessary, inspiration from past products could prove to be a lucrative decision. This rendering of a 1st generation Volkswagen Golf as an EV is proof.

Using an image of a new Volkswagen ID.3 as the base for the design, spdesignsest has created a Golf that “fits” over the German brand’s MEB platform. The Golf’s look is spot on and, although it reminds us of the Honda e in a way, it remains truly distinct right down to the upright windshield and accompanying tall cabin. And we love the simple front grille.

Volkswagen has dabbled in its past for the future. We all know the ID.Buzz, aka Bus, will be available in North America. For a brief moment, an electric Buggy was in the cards but it was ultimately put aside. An MK1-inspired compact EV, we think, we set the segment and the company ablaze.

Volkswagen’s ID. family of EVs is growing however there are two spots that have yet to be assigned to vehicles: The ID.1 and ID.2. In our opinion, the ID.1 should be an electric Beetle revival which means that the car in these renderings should be the ID.2.
