Volkswagen introduced the next member of the ID. concept family—the I.D. BUGGY—at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show. Drawing inspiration from the classic California dune buggies of the 1960s, the ID. BUGGY shows the versatility of the modular electric drive matrix (MEB). The zero-emissions drivetrain of the I.D. BUGGY is made up of the electric motor integrated in the rear axle, power electronics, a single-speed gearbox, the high-voltage flat battery (62 kWh) arranged in the car floor to save space, and the additional units integrated in the vehicle front end. The electric motor delivers 201 horsepower and maximum torque of 228 lb-ft from standstill. This means that the electric vehicle always provides enough power on the rear axle, even off-road. With full acceleration on paved slopes, the concept car sprints from zero to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically controlled at 99 mph. As an alternative to the rear-wheel-drive layout, it is also possible to fit a second electric motor in the front axle of the ID. BUGGY. In this case, an “electric propshaft” would distribute the power of the 4Motion four-wheel drive between the front and rear axles in frac...
