For all you retro fans out there; there are plans to bring back another classic from the VW bloodline and it might just become an electric vehicle this time. The plans concern the VW "hippy van".
Similar to the new Beetle this looks like a well done modern overhaul of the old design, spacious and comfy looking. It is expected to hit the market around 2012 and currently discussions are going on to decide on a power train. My guess is it will either be electric or hybrid, perhaps both types will be available even.
