It is noted that in case of approval of the electrical design of “beetle” in its configuration is close to the original version of the car. We are talking about using rear-wheel drive with a rear motor.
The series will form proprietary platform VW’s Modular Electric Drive (MEB). It allows you to create machine configuration required — drive front, rear or all-wheel drive. Thus, in the future, the Beetle can appear a variety of options, including all-wheel drive.
