The Electric Brands Xbus is the Grooviest Utility EV to Date

The Electric Brands Xbus needs to be offered globally


  • Clearly, it’s inspired by the Volkswagen Type 2, and that’s very ok.

  • The concept is modular and was developed according to the “Lego principle.”


Electric vehicles will not only eventually help us breathe better but are breathing new life into the automotive landscape. The ultra-cool and versatile Electric Brands Xbus proves that one vehicle can be versatile, utilitarian, and family-friendly. And extremely attractive as well.

Volkswagen has demonstrated that retro-designed EVs will work. The ID. Buzz is highly anticipated but it’s altogether possible that Electric Brands will make the best use of old ideas. While its styling is amusing and enticing, its specifications are equally impressive.

The Xbus offers permanent, electronically controlled all-wheel-drive thanks to four-wheel hub motors which generate a combined 1000 Nm of torque. The energy is provided by battery packs sized between 10 kWh to 30 kWh and thanks to its integrated solar modules and regenerative capabilities, the range can reach a maximum of 600 km.

The base module can be “transformed” into a convertible, off-roader, box body, station wagon, pick-up or van, and camping bus. There are more than 10 modular and interchangeable bodies that reconfigure the Xbus in only a few steps. Standard equipment includes a 10.2-inch display, keyless entry and go, and much more. The list of options is extensive.

For the moment, the Electric Brands Xbus is not available in North America but we hope it comes sooner rather than later.
