Volkswagen shows off their BUDD-e concept at CES
Volkswagen stays on course for innovation. The world premiere of the BUDD-e shows the next step towards the mobility of the future. Its newly developed electric drive enables a driving range of up to 533 kilometers (NEDC) / 233 Miles (EPA estimated real-world driving range). The all-wheel drive vehicle’s system has a total power output of 235 kW/317 PS.
With the batteries located in the vehicle floor, the concept permits entirely new, unrestricted forms of interior design. The BUDD-e is a modern interpretation of the first Volkswagen bus. One of its highlights is the charging cycle. It is possible to charge the battery to 80 percent of its capacity within just around 30 minutes.
Parallel to this, Volkswagen presented the e-Golf Touch, which is based on the production model. With its state-of-the-art infotainment system the e-Golf Touch reflects one of the key connectivity trends of the near future.
Not only does the e-Golf Touch have innovative gesture control, it also features a further developed version of the Modular Infotainment Toolkit (MIB) with a 9.2-inch display. This touch display merges the operating worlds of smartphones and automobiles.
