Volkswagen BUDDe is Concept of The Year


We have seen the future of mobility – and it walked away with an award!

At the 15th Annual North American Concept Vehicle of The Year Awards, Volkswagen received 2016 Concept Truck of The Year for the BUDD-e Concept. Awarded at the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s in Michigan, the award was given by a panel of judges looking for a concept that epitomizes style, overall architecture, propulsion and innovation.

Volkswagen scored highly with the BUDD-e Concept with a perfect combination of heritage and modern elements. A nod to the past to the original Volkswagen Bus, it features a 101 kWh battery with an estimated range of up to 233 miles, gesture control version 2.0 enabling intuitive operation of interior and exterior features and seamless communications with smart home and car technology, and infotainment technologies that turn travel into a fully interactive, intuitive experience.

Volkswagen Van Nuys believes that a production version of the BUDD-e concept fits perfectly with the California lifestyle of sustainable transportation. We hope to be able to present one to our customers in the near future.
