Volkswagen debuts Beetle-based Electric Hot Rod at the Detroit Motor Show

A pure-electric concept model based on the new generation of the Beetle is going to be Volkswagen's surprise at next week's 2012 North American International Motor Show from Detroit. The news contradicts some previous reports which said otherwise. Slightly resembling the Volkswagen Ragster Concept presented at the 2005 Detroit Motor Show, the conceptual EV version of the recently launched 2012 Beetle is enhanced by a heavily modified body with wider fenders and a lowered roof. An electric motor fed by a battery pack, will deliver power. More details will be revealed at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show.
