    VW unveils new all-electric and autonomous retro microbus with 270 miles of range

      I think it's sad that such a spacious concept vehicle, to be launched in 2020, is basically already 3 years behind Tesla's battery range/size.

        I am surprised with that as well. Although things can change by the time actual car is built. I would so love to have this in my garage.

            ...but will it have that awesome shelf in the back over where the engine was? As the youngest of 5 kids that was my designated sleep space! Yes, this was long before mandatory seat belt laws.

            You had a shelf???

            I remember travelling from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia in our pickup truck.
            In the bed of the truck.
            In winter.

            We did have a cap on the bed, but it was just me and my sister, bundled up in winter coats and a couple of sleeping bags.

            God, that sucked. :p

              That's what I loved about the shelf. Nice and warm and the vibration from the engine...slept like a baby. Hell, I WAS a baby!
