Volkswagen Buggy Up! Concept
Volkswagen surprised everyone at the Frankfurt Auto Show last month with this Buggy style concept car, aptly named the “Buggy Up!” Traditionally, automakers release some information on its latest concept cars in the days and weeks leading up to an auto show, but Volkswagen chose a route off the beaten path with their Buggy Up! The car draws inspiration from Beetle-based beach buggies of the past, while incorporating a modern shape that includes no doors. In lieu of doors, there’s a waterproof cockpit with two neoprene bucket seas, drain holes, a grab-handle for the passenger, a removable infotainment module, and a fabric roof; ensuring that you can still take the Buggy Up! out to the beach for a spin. The hatchback has also been replaced with a trunk lid that splits to fold up and down for easy access.
