Volkswagen has announced a new electric car concept that it will unveil at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. To give us a bit of a preview it has released three teaser images and has said that this new vehicle is based on their upcoming modular electric platform.
The pictures do not reveal much but from them we can understand that this new concept car will be a global size compact hatchback. It will carry all the modern VW design hallmarks the logo, headlamps, tail lamps and grille. This car is based on the same modular platform as the Budd-E microbus and is likely to borrow a lot of its tech and cabin design.
VW has already confirmed that the car will go into production and that it will do for them in the electric car era what the iconic Beetle hatchback did for them in the 20th century. The company had announced earlier this year that it would have electric cars across the range by 2020 and this one in production guise is expected to be the first one.
