Discover Volkswagen's EV Sensibility

Volkswagen is rolling out an electric vehicle in Europe, the ID.3 hatchback, and it can show the car world what VW wants to produce in the future. It combines uncomplicated design with user-friendly technology. The hatch is built on VW’s Modular Electric Drive Construction Kit platform, MEB, which VW shares with its subsidiaries. The MEB platform reduces production costs, and Volkswagen’s four badges can offer their own versions of an affordable electric car using the MEB.

So, how inexpensive is it? The numbers aren’t available yet, but Volkswagen expects to sell 100,000 a year in Europe. The ID.3 includes updatable software, state-of-the-art infotainment system, augmented-reality heads-up-display, and augmented and semi-autonomous driving technology.

What level of autonomy are we at? Volkswagen is offering Level 3 autonomy, or self-driving cars on the freeway but not on the freeway ramps. Some sources believe that fully autonomous vehicles will be much slower reaching the market than people think and will be very expensive for drivers in Broken Arrow and beyond.

Whatever happened to the VW Microbus? Volkswagen has introduced an EV ID Buzz, a fully electric vehicle that was suggested as an heir to the VW Vanagon microbus. With the online package delivery service evolving in the marketplace, the new EV ID Buzz could quickly become a cargo carrier.

Volkswagen is also predicting a battery shortage in the 2020s, and they’re investing in hydrogen fuel for their Audi line. Nevertheless, VW’s commitment to electricity is growing. They not only plan to produce electric car batteries, but they’re also looking forward to re-purposing old batteries and ultimately recycling worn out batteries. Volkswagen is optimistic about fusion fuel cell technology, but for the 2020s, the game is electricity. That’s how the car manufacturer will reduce the footprint of the average vehicle for families in the Bixby area.

Is the Dune Buggy Back? Remember the old dune buggy hippies drove around the desert in the 1960s? They must have bought a kit car for a VW bug of light fiberglass construction. The kit was designed to fit on a VW bug frame. The same dune buggy is being reintroduced by Volkswagen officially as a concept to perhaps be added as an electric car lineup in the future. The old buggy is lightweight and easily converted to an electric vehicle for Owasso drivers.
