    Spiritual successor to the VW Bug? Volkswagen leaving door open for a VW Up Buggy

    The appeal of VW early on in the USA was that the cars were affordable and had a certain appeal with their styling. The bug had a "fun factor" it is difficult to describe but enjoyed an iconic status in the USA. The Beetle has evolved since then but the Up Buggy pictured below aims to recapture that feel good VW emotion. They recently made patent filings in the United States for the Up Buggy meaning production is a possibility.

    This patent runs for 14 years so when the car will come or if is uncertain other than it would be somewhere in that 14 year window. The Up Buggy is trying to be fun and affordable similar to a VW Beach Buggy.

    The car certainly seems like a good idea. Affordable, light, nimble, fun, and with good styling. What's not to like? The only thing stopping production is that pesky money problem. VW is currently conducting research studies into how many they can sell a year. It is a business after all, emotional appeal only goes so far.
