ZelectricBug Electric VW Beetle

ZelectricBug Electric VW Beetle

Zelectric Motors finds and restores 50s-60s Volkswagen Beetles, then turns them into electric cars. The motor installed has twice the horsepower of its gas counterpart, and of course provides instant torque for a fun ride.

Bumper Cars without Bumping

Bumper Cars without Bumping

To promote their collision avoidance tech, Volkswagen fitted bumper cars at a theme park with ultrasonic sensors and automatic braking to prevent them from hitting each other. They got the point across, but also wrecked the fun.

Volkswagen XL Sport Concept

Volkswagen XL Sport Concept

The XL Sport has the same 1199cc V-Twin engine that’s in the Ducati 1199 Superleggera. That means it only has 197hp and 99 lb.-ft. of torque to work with, but the concept car makes up for it with its low drag coefficient and weight.

2015 Volkswagen e-Golf

The e-Golf looks like its gas-powered siblings. The EV’s motor produces 115hp and 199lb.ft. of torque. It will get between 70mi to 90mi per charge and will go up to 87mph. US price starts at $35.5K. Read our test drive on 95Octane.

Dat Engine Noise

Volkswagen: Eyes on the Road

Volkswagen: Eyes on the Road

To remind people not to use their mobile device while driving, Volkswagen arranged a blunt but highly appropriate public service advisory in a theater. Aiden Pearce approves of this message.

2015 VW Golf GTI Interactive Ad

2015 VW Golf GTI Interactive Ad

Volkswagen hooked up a ton of GoPro cameras to a 2015 Golf GTI so it could shoot from a variety of angles as rally driver Tanner Foust messed about with the car. Turn annotations on and watch out for the prompts to change views.

Volkswagen Golf R 400

Volkswagen Golf R 400

VW Kombi: Last Wishes

VW Kombi: Last Wishes

It’s known by many names – Type 2, Kombi, Transporter, camper, microbus, hippie van – and loved by many more. Volkswagen Brazil bids goodbye to one of the most recognizable vehicles ever made by reaching out to its fans.

Van Life

Over 300 watercolor drawings combine with 3D effects in this short but sweet animation by Parachute Parachute to create a very personal and touching love letter to the cultural force that was the Volkswagen Vanagon.

2014 Volkswagen Scirocco

Porsche Formula V & VW Type 2

A restored 1964 Porsche Formula Vee race car and a restored and remodeled Volkswagen Type 2 pick-up. The latter wasn’t originally the carrier for the race car, but it is from the same year and has been modified accordingly.

1,000HP Volkswagen Golf

1,000HP Volkswagen Golf

Boba-Motoring’s insane 16Vampir VW Golf is turbocharged to 1,013hp. It goes from 0 to 60mph in 2.3s and tops out at nearly 200mph. What’s that? You have a Bugatti Veyron SS and a Nissan GT-R? Watch this and weep.

2015 Volkswagen Golf

2015 Volkswagen Golf

The all new VW Golf is longer, lower, sportier, more fuel efficient and more sharply styled than the current version. Gotta love the projection mapping even if you’re not wild about the car.

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTI

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Lighter, wider and lower than its predecessor. It has a 220hp 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, goes from 0 to 62mph in 6.5s and tops out at 153mph. Video of the concept car here.

Volkswagen Jetta: Baby

Volkswagen Jetta: Baby

A newborn baby gets in a near-death situation in this silly commercial promoting the Volkswagen Jetta’s safety features. It’s a shame they ruined a good joke by explaining it. Still funny though.

The Camper tent is cute and all, but if you’re looking for a more permanent travel companion, the Dub-Box will suit you better. It’s fully furnished, but the matching VW van is not included.

Volkswagen: Dog Strikes Back

Volkswagen: Dog Strikes Back

We’re not sure if dogs, weight loss, James Brown, Star Wars and Volkswagen make any sense together either. You be the judge of the extended cut of VW’s pot-luck of a Super Bowl commercial.

Volkswagen: The Bark Side

Volkswagen: The Bark Side

VW follows up on last year’s awesome Darth Vader Superbowl commercial with a teaser to get you in the mood for game day. Bonus points if you can identify each dog’s character. (Thanks, Kyle!)

Volkswagen E-Bugster Concept

Volkswagen E-Bugster Concept

An electric Beetle (why change the name?) with a 114hp motor and a battery that lasts up to 100mi per charge. Its low, flat and wide design echoes VW’s desired new direction for the iconic line.

Sub-Compact Car

Sub-Compact Car

VW recently redesigned the Beetle, but we think this is taking it a bit too far. Somewhere up the road, there’s a passenger lying on the side of the road in the other half of this car.

Modern technologies encased in a body inspired by the original Beetle, the 2012 Beetle is wider, lower and sports a more aggressive look. It’s also the most fuel efficient, able to get up to 33mpg.

VW Bulli Concept

VW Bulli Concept

The grandchild of the Type 2, aka the hippie van. While we still prefer the look of the older model, the Bulli does have its own appeal. VW is said to be planning on releasing gas and electric versions.
