Volkswagen Budd-e Concept.

Volkswagen Budd-e Concept — electric minivan Volkswagen.

concept name Budd-e sounds as well as buddy ( «mate», «pal»), and etotelektrichesky van is probably the most friendly car of the Volkswagen on the man-machine interface.

For example, Budd-e keeps track of all the things on board and does not give anything to forget: it is necessary to stick to subjects specific labels. As a result, if the predicted rain, van computer learns about this and tells the driver whether there is an umbrella in the car.

The car performs the voice commands and understands sign language, is connected to the «smart home» and shows which products are in the fridge, or someone rings the doorbell. And that’s not all. Company Volkswagen promises that such nurturing her car will be in 2019.

In the van no door handles and exterior mirrors: they were replaced by electronics. LEDs are not only in the headlamps and the C-shaped modules in the bumper, but in a narrow strip around the perimeter of the body.

The VW Group believe that the Microbus XXI century must emit a lot of light.

Length — 4597 mm, width — 1938, height — 1834, wheelbase — 3152 mm. Thus, Budd-e occupies a niche between models Touran and T6 Multivan (this is the official positioning).

Concept MPV is the first Volkswagen, the latest example of a modular platform MEB (Modular Electric Toolkit), created specifically for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.

The developers claim that this architecture «heralds a fundamental change and a revolution in automotive engineering.» Like, she would leave ICE eating fossil fuels, is far in the past.

According to engineers, the MEB platform allows to «pack» compact electric motors, large high-performance batteries and other electrical components without sacrificing interior space and the dynamics of movement.


The show car Budd-e is equipped with two electric motors. Their power does not name the company. According to the newspaper to Autocar, the motor on the front axle gives out 135 hp and 199 N • m, on the back — 170 hp, 290 N • m, and the amount obtained 306 hp, 489 N • m.

Step up to 96.5 km / h takes 6.9 seconds. Maximum speed — 150 km / h. The battery has a capacity of 101 kW • h.

Her charge is enough for 600 km (NEDC cycle on), or 375 km (by EPA standards).

When the van will go into a series, the batteries will be recharged to 80% in half an hour.

The interior brings to mind the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Budd-e creators also combined digital devices and a central display for one glass, and made touchpads on the steering wheel. For the sake of the screen for the rear passenger window had to be sacrificed. Right front seat turns 180 degrees.

The Germans replaced the mirrors broadcast with external cameras and improved gesture control system, which was first introduced on the concept Golf R Touch.

Now, infrared sensors detect people when they are close to the car. After that, the sliding door opens with one flick of the wrist (it works from the inside), and the roof — «kick» a statement on the foot trail laser projected on the ground.

To activate the voice command is sufficient to say: «Hello Budd-e».

You can then ask for a quieter music or lower the temperature. When connected to the «smart home» there is an opportunity to look through a display van to your home or office, turn off the light there, to visit children and so on. Which of the following comes to the conveyor, it will be clear within two-three years.

By the way, at CES, where he was introduced Budd-e, folksvagenovtsy wanted to show the integration of their cars with CarPlay system, but Apple has not allowed them to do so. The reasons are unknown.

Perhaps the matter «dizelgeyte», but more likely that Apple wants to hold the first demonstration of its own, such as the World Wide Developers Conference.

Specifications Volkswagen Budd-e Concept 2016:

at the heart of the concept MEB platform, implying the presence of the latest battery capacity of 92.4 kW, which occupies the whole of the ground floor area of the electric bus that is limited to the distance between the axles and the two installed on front and rear axle motors.


The front electric motor of 100 kW at 200 Nm, rear electric motor — 125 kW and 290 Nm (total engine power of 225 kW, about 301 hp).

The presence of two electric motors providing all-wheel drive minivan, the dynamics of acceleration from 0 to 100 kmh in 6.9 seconds, top speed is limited at 180 mph. Cruising with fully charged batteries about 533 km.

the battery is charged from the power outlet or use a contactless inductive charging. With the power of 150 kW battery charging at 80% it takes place in just 30 minutes.

According to preliminary information, the production version of the electric minivan German debut already in 2018.

Test drive the Volkswagen Budd-e Concept 2016-2017
