Volkswagen Confirms New Microbus In Coming Years

Volkswagen is working on a new microbus that might take the traditional minivan look, with a conventional interior, just a heck of a lot bolder.

The VW microbus is legend in the world of motoring. It was used back in the 1960s and 70s as a people carrier and became an icon during the hippie revolution. While it might not gain that status in its new form, there is no doubt that it will retain some of those old characteristics.

VW's first microbus was unveiled in 2001

Nearly a decade ago, Volkswagen unveiled a microbus concept at the 2001 North American International Auto Show. The green bus received high praise, but it was never made due to cost concerns.

Despite this, Klaus Bischoff has not forgotten about the van. He told Auto Express, "I would not be doing my job, at Volkswagen, properly if I was not thinking of bringing back the Camper."

The concept of Volkswagen's microbus should be unveiled in the next few years.
