The quirky Volkswagen I.D. Buggy Concept has made its Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance debut at Monterey Car Week. It was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show and previews the versatility of Volkswagen’s modular I.D. architecture. This all-electric buggy is powered by a 62-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack and two axle-mounted motors for a combined output of 201 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, sent to all four wheels, which equates to a 0-60 miles per hour time of 7.2 seconds.

This EV may only boast a 155-mile range, but it more than makes up for that with its off-road capability, thanks in part to 18-inch wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain TA tires (255/50 front, 285/60 rear). Its flat aluminum underbody ensures that rough terrain won’t wreck the buggy, while two red steel tow hooks embedded in the front offer maximum towing power should it be needed.
