With classic design elements borrowed from California dune buggies of the 1960s, a versatile layout, and a fully-electric powertrain, the I.D. BUGGY provides a fun and functional driving experience.

Exterior Design of Volkswagen I.D. BUGGY

The open concept design and raised hood and fenders signal that the Volkswagen I.D. BUGGY is ready for some off-road adventures. The body of the I.D. BUGGY appears to float above the chassis, which is accentuated by the use of a two-tone color scheme, with matte Fern Green at the top and textured Grey Tech Blue at the bottom. The I.D. BUGGY is quite approachable, with no grille, doors, or roof. For rollover protection, the I.D. BUGGY features a Targa bar and a reinforced windscreen frame.

Interior Design of Volkswagen I.D. BUGGY

The interior of the Volkswagen I.D. BUGGY has a minimalistic design, with waterproofing materials and exterior design elements that continue into the cockpit area. The I.D. BUGGY can seat two people. Both the driver and passenger can enjoy a surprisingly large amount of space, which can be credited in part to the compact electric drive system that’s arranged on the outside of the vehicle. Additional interior features include a digital instrument cluster and a hexagonal steering wheel with water-resistant Nappa leather.
