During the Center for Automotive Research’s annual Management Briefing Seminars, Dr. Matthias Erb, Chief Engineering Officer North American Region, #volkswagen, presented #budde, Volkswagen’s electric microbus concept during the Car of Tomorrow session. Having debuted at CES® 2016 in Las Vegas, #budde is the first concept car developed by the #volkswagen Group that is built on the new Modular Electric Toolkit (MEB) platform.

“The #budde concept offers a glimpse of next-generation e-mobility, connectivity and infotainment innovations, a perfect fit to showcase during the ‘Car of Tomorrow’ session,” said Dr. Matthias Erb, Chief Engineering Officer North American Region, #volkswagen. “Built on the MEB platform, we are showing a concept but also showcasing real-world possibilities of the future.”

Completely and thoroughly networked, #budde is a mobile interface which connects the vehicle with the world around it. With the #budde #volkswagen has developed a vehicle that can be more thoroughly connected with its surroundings than any car before it.

The #budde concept’s highlights include:

  • A 101 kWh battery that gives a manufacturer estimated range of up to 233 miles
  • Gesture control 2.0 that enables intuitive operation of interior and exterior features
  • Seamless communications with smart home and smart car technology, and infotainment technologies that turn travel into an interactive, intuitive experience
