Dear VW: This is not a fucking microbus

How many times to I need to repeat it, before you dudes figure it out? I want a hybrid fucking Microbus. This new van (Routan? WTF) is ugly as hell. Nevertheless, it’s actually in production and will be coming out, although it’s butt ugly.


Build a damn BUS. A hybrid friggin’ BUS. Build THIS:
VW Bus
As a hybrid. It’s really not that friggin’ hard to figure out.
I know I got excited about this spaceUp!Blue thing – and it wasn’t that terrible looking. I was mainly excited about anything resembling a microbus idea at all, plus it’s supposed to be a hybrid. But they’re not going to make it in the US.

Actually, the closest they came to doing it right was the concept Bus that they came out with a few years ago (around 2003 or so)

They scotched it due to “lack of interest.” I doubt that highly – I think it was a lack of interest in square friggin’ headlights. And a potential gas guzzler. Put some round headlights on there, and make it a HYBRID, and people will buy it.
ERRR. It’s not rocket surgery, people.
