DETROIT -- Christian Buhlmann, a Volkswagen Spokesperson for North America from Wolfsburg, Germany, says the E-Bugster is a two seater, all electric vehicle and has the same powertrain as the VW Golf.

It is powered by a 114-hp electric motor and a lithium-ion battery and gets 100 miles on a charge in zero emissions driving. You can charge this car in three ways: 120-volt, 240-volt, and quick charge, which is an 80-percent charge in 30 minutes. The battery weighs 176 pounds and is stored under the trunk floor and rear bench seat.

The Bugster has a flat and wide windshield. You can take off the top roof, so it is capable of being a roadster. The roof material is made of fiberglass. It takes four people to line the pins in the holes for the roof assembly. It has 20-inch chrome wheels with a Porsche design and it has front wheel drive.

There is no target price and no decision made on production.

The Bugster has a C-shaped design of LED daytime running lights on the front of the car. These lights have become a signature element on the Volkswagen electric vehicle studies.

The interior has an energy consumption display that fluctuates with vehicle acceleration. It also has a driving range indicator and a display showing the battery's charge state.
