Beijing Show 2012 Highlights: Volkswagen E-Bugster Cabriolet Concept

Volkswagen is previewing the look of its new Beetle cabriolet with an open-top version of its electric-powered E-Bugster concept at the Beijing motor show.

The latest E-Bugster retains the earlier concept’s bold look, but it swaps its speedster-style roof structure for a roofless profile that insiders suggest provides clues to the look of the new Beetle cabriolet.

Unlike the previous Beetle cabriolet, whose roof remained exposed even when folded away, the E-Bugster’s structure is stowed beneath a plastic tonneau cover, preserving its retro-inspired lines while providing it with a cleaner overall appearance - something that is set to be reflected on the new model.

The concept’s tonneau cover extends forward behind the front seats, turning it into a two-seater, while the rear edge forms a spoiler that lends the car greater visual length.

The production-ready Beetle cabriolet will be revealed at the Los Angeles motor show in November.
