VW Chief Confirms Microbus is Back On

Back in 2001 VW excited fans with the unveiling of the Microbus concept at the Detroit Auto Show. It was supposed to be produced, but it never happened. Now according to Auto Express, plans are back on to bring the Microbus concept to life.

VW’s chief designer, Klaus Bischoff recently told Auto Express that he feels its part of his job at VW to bring the Camper back. According to Bischoff the original plans to produce the Microbus were called off because of cost and not lack of public demand. VW is now trying to decide how bold the car should be, if it should be a traditional MPV or something more flexible and versatile.

If this is all true we may see a concept by 2012.
