Volkswagen Presents Budd-E Electric Microbus Concept

During the Center for Automotive Research’s annual Management Briefing Seminars, Dr. Matthias Erb, Chief Engineering Officer North American Region, Volkswagen, presented BUDD-e, Volkswagen’s electric microbus concept during the Car of Tomorrow session.

Having debuted at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, BUDD-e is the first concept car developed by the Volkswagen Group that is built on the new Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) platform.

Volkswagen North American Region chief engineering officer Dr. Matthias Erb said: “The BUDD-e concept offers a glimpse of next-generation e-mobility, connectivity and infotainment innovations, a perfect fit to showcase during the 'Car of Tomorrow' session.

“Built on the MEB platform, we are showing a concept but also showcasing real-world possibilities of the future.”

Completely and thoroughly networked, BUDD-e is a mobile interface which connects the vehicle with the world around it. With the BUDD-e Volkswagen has developed a vehicle that can be more thoroughly connected with its surroundings than any car before it.

The BUDD-e concept’s highlights include:

A 101 kWh battery that gives a manufacturer estimated range of up to 233 miles

Gesture control 2.0 that enables intuitive operation of interior and exterior features

Seamless communications with smart home and smart car technology, and infotainment technologies that turn travel into an interactive, intuitive experience.
