The VW Type 2 microbus is an icon and not just for hippies and serial killers. Its simplicity, capacity, and pill-shaped body has made it a favorite on at least two continents. Now, it’s been properly updated by EV West by electrifying it. A 1972 Type 2 is the base vehicle, and it wisely borrows the engine from its own stablemate, the 2017 e-Golf. Instead of a meager 60 horses in the original van, it now gets better torque and more than double the horsepower. Range on a single charge is 125 miles, so it can manage the daily commute with ease. The rest of the vehicle looks properly vintage, though pristine. It’s the best collision of low-key modern electric power with even lower-key old-school style. You’ll show off the efficient engine while the manual windows and lack of infotainment will keep you humble.
