Volkswagen ID. Buggy Makes An Appearance In Monterey

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the Volkswagen ID. Buggy Concept will be at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend.

Monterey Car Week is always full of awesome and intriguing cars. This year, one of them is the Volkswagen ID. Buggy. The concept made its world debut last March during the Geneva Motor Show.

The ID. Buggy stood out quite a bit when it was first introduced as an all-electric dune buggy. This cute VW concept is built on the modular electric drive matrix (MEB) platform and is powered by 62 kWh battery.

Mated to a single-speed gearbox, the Volkswagen ID. Buggy develops 201 horsepower and a maximum torque of 228 lb-ft. This propels the EV to a 0-100 km/h in 7.2 seconds. The estimated range, according to German manufacuter, is around 250 km (155 miles) on the WLTP cycle.

The two-seater’s rugged look is achieved by, amongst other things, the lack of doors and roof but also the staggered 18-inch wheels and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A off-road tires (255/55 at front and 285/60 at rear). This thing is perfect to cruise on the beach and therefore fits perfectly in California.

The ID. Buggy is, for now, a concept only. It joins the rank of the ID. family propelled by the upcoming Volkswagen ID.3 which goes on sale this fall in Europe. In North America, we will get an ID. CROZZ-based compact SUV late in 2020.
