The focal electric module of the Volkswagen E-Bugster has an inventive outline; it weighs only 80 kg. The vitality for controlling the electric engine is put away in a lithium-particle battery whose modules are housed in a space-sparing area behind the front seats. The battery's vitality limit of 28.3 kWh empowers a scope of no less than 180 km in the urban world. What's more, even in a colossal nation like China, for the larger part of suburbanites this is adequate to drive to their working environments and return home. Since the Volkswagen has a speedy charging capacity, the battery can be "refueled" inside 35 minutes at appropriate charging stations. At home, the battery of the VW E-Bugster can likewise be charged from an ordinary electric outlet. The interface for the charge link is situated behind the ordinary 'fuel entryway' close to the C-column.
Bugster? That sounds familiar. Of course: Ragster! That was in January 2005 in Detroit, where Volkswagen presented a New Beetle as a speedster with a swept-back ragtop (folding roof) - the Ragster. A design vision for the Beetle of tomorrow - wider, lower, sportier. In 2005, the slogan for the concept's feasibility was expressed as: "Everything is conceivable!" In 2012, it had advanced to: "Everything is feasible!" Because the idea of the Ragster - wider, lower, sportier - became a reality (with the exception of the ragtop) in October 2011 in the current production Beetle. So, what does the name E-Bugster actually signify? That is easy to explain: a combination of the 'E' for electric models, the American nickname for the Beetle, 'Bug' and the vehicle type 'speedster' that describes a low, open-top two-seater.
