Just read this article. VW may be looking into bringing back the T2

Volkswagen bus to be revived as an electric vehicle

Nice idea, but I'll believe it when I see one in the flesh.

Nice idea but you can imagine how small the range will be particularly with a heavy camping load. At least you'll have something nice to sit in while you wait for someone to recharge your batteries.

I'm with Tallulah on this one .... never gonna happen! It's probably just industry bravado.

Electric vehicles and battery technology are coming along in leaps and bounds now. I've a 2 tonne SUV that is battery driven. It does have a 2 litre petrol engine but that is used to generate electricity for the batteries, although at speeds over 76 it (allegedly) does go into direct drive as well, as the motors don't produce enough power to go that fast. At my last petrol fill-up, my third since getting the car in Jan, I returned 89mpg and my average is 74mpg. Not bad for 1600 miles of predominantly town driving.

And yes, I do carry a cable for campsite charging Smile
