VW EV Concept for CES 2016 Looks Like a Microbus

Volkswagen just revealed a teaser of their new EV concept for the CES 2016 event.

Volkswagen plans to debut their EV concept at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016. In preparation for the launch VW has revealed a teaser of the concept.

The purely electric vehicle seems like a blend of a futuristic vintage car. The VW car concept resembles the vintage Microbus majorly but with an innovative edge.

The first teaser suggests the EV has an illuminated grille and squinting headlights. The first look also indicates the EV has vintage cues from the van Microbus.

The wide D-pillar and boxy overall aesthetic are trademark Microbus features. It seems Volkswagen is looking to revive the Microbus's classic look for their EV concept. 

According to VW the concept is a way to point toward its future. The concept will encourage CES visitors to forget about VW’s current diesel emissions scandal.

The EV concept will make its full debut on the 5th of January, reported AutoBlog. The chairman of VW will himself unveil the concept during his CES keynote. During CES, VW will focus on the latest developments in electro-mobility. VW will also highlight the advancements in the next generation of connectivity. 

Volkswagen is using different venues more closely aligned with the vehicle being displayed. The EV concept has been hidden under a veil in the teaser picture.

Still the dimensions of the Volkswagen EV concept are visible.  Previously rumors had been circling that VW is launching a new Microbus. It seems the Volkswagen EV concept is the reincarnation of the Microbus.
