Why is BUDD-e a big deal?

MEB stands for Modular Electric Toolkit. BUDD-e is the first VW model based on this technology. MEB technology, specifically designed for plug-in vehicles, gives BUDD-e a mobile interface that connects with the world. Think: Smart Home, Smart Car technology. 

This next-generation infotainment concept will hopefully change the way we think of smart cars by taking the technology to a new level.

The BUDD-e design also captures Volkswagen’s heritage with a revolutionary, outside-the-box design and elements representing the original VW Microbus.
