VW brings E-Bugster concept to Beijing for Asia premier

Volkswagen is showing the E-Bugster electric vehicle concept, unveiled earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show (earlier post) at Auto China in Beijing for its premiere in Asia. The two-seat Beetle speedster, features an 85 kW electric motor or 38.3 kWh battery pack, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.8 seconds.

Volkswagen calls the complete electric drive unit “Blue-e-Motion”.

Featuring a new Combined Charging System, the E-Bugster can be recharged via one interface using any available charging modalities: single-phase charging with AC current or ultra-fast DC charging at charging stations (quick charge).

Just checked, China's mains voltage is 220V so need to install a separate 240V domestic supply (unlike the USA). Europe in general is also 220-240V with electrical equipment rated at 230V +/- 6%.
