Volkswagen Teases All-Electric Microbus Concept

Volkswagen has teased what is presumably the Microbus concept bound to debut at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

Rumors of the all-electric Microbus concept debuting early next year have been ongoing for the past couple of months and now the German automaker has basically confirmed it’s coming. The teaser image shows a concept¬†under a thin cover that shows a vehicle with larger dimensions, while the bright white lighting alludes to an all-electric concept. Volkswagen fans will recognize that the lower running lights are shaped exactly like the ones found on the e-Golf.

Even Volkswagen has confirmed that the new concept “marks the beginning of a new era of affordable long-distance electromobility.”

The German automaker will also display the latest developments in in-car infotainment that includes innovations such as the Golf R Touch concept car.
