Volkswagen Bulli concept may head for production

Volkswagen is “very serious” about producing a fossil-fuelled version of the Bulli MPV electric concept car, as the firm believes building its heritage should be included in its business case.

The Bulli, who styling echoes the '60s Microbus, debuted in Geneva last March and immediately received a warm reception. The Bulli concept is a smidge larger than the Polo supermini and would be produced in Puebla, Mexico as insiders believe the Bulli would sell very well in the U.S and become a cult car, where the Microbus is lovingly remembered.

“As a designer, I am convinced by this idea,” says design chief Walter de’Silva. “We don’t have a space for another conventional MPV, but this one would be desirable on a different level, combining practicality with the heritage appeal.”

Production would start in mid-2013.
