‘On a Level Playing Field With Today’s Gasoline-Powered Cars’

Single-charge range of better than 230 miles will put Volkswagen’s “Budd-e” all-electric minivan “on a level playing field with today’s gasoline-powered cars,” the company said at the New York International Auto Show.

Sailing past the service station with a single-charge range of better than 200 or even 300 miles? Volkswagen is making big promises for its 100% battery-electric Budd-e minivan.

The vehicle’s 101-kilowatt-hour battery pack will provide an estimated range of 233 miles based on the U.S. EPA drive cycle – an impressive 373 miles based the NEDC/New European Drive Cycle. Budd-e, as currently conceived, will have two electric motors, one to drive each axle.

“Coupled with a charismatic, iconic design, this vehicle successfully incorporates Volkswagen’s heritage while providing a glimpse into the brand’s future,” VW says.

“With Budd-e,” states a release, “Volkswagen demonstrates what electric mobility could be like by the year 2019.”

The New York International Auto Show runs though April 3.
