The current trend passes through the body of SUV, a vehicle that is in great demand in the united States (largest in Europe), a market of great importance that “they have sworn” to the German mark. Perhaps that is why Volkswagen has decided to develop a concept electric SUV.
Automotive News claims to have talked in the Detroit Auto show with Klaus Bischoff, the chief designer of the company, who would have declared that “the SUV will come, that is decided”, after being questioned on what made her debut there as the concept Volkswagen I. D. Buzz and not a model with a body any way. According to this same medium, the future SUV will be presented in the form of concept at the Auto show of Shanghai, during the next month of April.

The initials “MEB” come from “Modular Electric Drive”, and as its name indicates is used for the development of electric vehicles.
Volkswagen has a tough job ahead if he wants to go back to to gain the trust of the american customers, where the dieselgate has done a lot of damage. In Europe, losses on sales data have been minimum.
