Is Volkswagen making the Microbus again?
Few other vehicles in automotive history are associated with such evocative imagery as the Volkswagen Microbus. VW produced the first Microbus about 70 years ago.

Starting is 2022, Volkswagen will begin to roll electrically-powered versions of the Microbus to dealerships like Schworer VW.

Both AutoBlog and MotorTrend expect the T-Roc to eventually make its way to American dealers, like Schower Volkswage. Let us know in the comments what you think. Read the rest of this entry »
