The silhouetted, topless vehicle is pictured cruising in the moonlight with Santa at the wheel. We can see soft curves, a free-standing windshield and big, knobby tires pushed out to the very corners of the little two-seater. A little flag flies off the whip antenna at the rear of the car.
Autocar says VW’s I.D. beach buggy is currently being pieced together at the automaker’s R&D center in Braunschweig, Germany, with a possible debut in March 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show. While production seems like a longshot, the report claims the buggy is under “active consideration” as a third retro-inspired car to be built on the MEB platform, the other throwbacks being the I.D. Buzz and a Beetle-inspired five-door hatchback. Fingers crossed.
