Volkswagen Microbus Concept
The Volkswagen Microbus Concept Car (also known as the Volkswagen New Microbus and Volkswagen Microbus Concept) was a concept car created by Volkswagen to create a modern take on the original Volkswagen Microbus. Unveiled during the 2001 North American International Auto Show, plans to place the car into production came to an abrupt halt in early 2005. Volkswagen was then reportedly redesigning the front fascia of the car in preparation for a future release.
On 29th November 2005, the American International Automobile Dealers Association (AIADA) newsletter reported that Bloomberg had mentioned that Chrysler was to build minivans for Volkswagen AG at its South plant in St. Louis.
The design of the Microbus was far more modernised compared to its predecessor and featured several technological advances. For instance, there were two 7-inch screens located in the center console and towards the roof. The former allowed passengers to watch television whilst the latter allowed the driver to see what was behind the vehicle. This technology has since been implemented in many production cars today.
