Volkswagen Camper is the legendary car.It went through just so many important events:war in Vietnam,hippie movement,first launch on the moon,assassination of John F. Kennedy and a lot of other stuff.
Damn, this car have seen more than anyone of us, no surprise why it's one of the most beloved cars all over the world.
But we're going a little bit off topic from talking about our main issue, so let's switch to our main issue - all electric VW Camper.
Production of legendary van began in Wolfsburg 65 years ago.
Speaking at the 2015 New York Show, Neusser revealed that Volkswagen engineers and designers are working on a new Camper van concept using a small electric motor driving the front wheels and battery packs stored under the floor.
He also told us that the design of the original VW van is "so iconic" that any attempt at a new model would have to have three "very important" design cues: "First the wide, solid, D-Pillar, second the boxy design of the centre section and, thirdly, the front end must have a very short overhang. The distance from the A-pillar to the front end must be very short."
The key to achieving the unique front-end design is the fact that an electric motor would allow a much lower bonnet line than a conventional petrol engine. This, in turn, would allow the A-pillars to be placed much further forward than in a conventional MPV.
Such a car, he said, with an attractive cost base could make it into production. Work on the concept was currently ongoing at VW, Neusser confirmed.
Well, let's wish them good luck and wait for the brand-new Volkswagen Camper available to buy in the nearest future.
