Can I Buy a Used Volkswagen Bus?

Volkswagen Bus

Have you always dreamed of cruising in the retro cool of a used Volkswagen bus around Bellaire? Well, you’re likely going to be limited to finding one of the originals through vintage car dealers or third-party sellers, although we occasionally get one in the used car inventory at Serra Volkswagen of Traverse City. The good news is, soon you’ll be able to get on the bus for the 21st century with the introduction of the Volkswagen Electric Bus! Learn more about what you need to know to find a used Volkswagen bus, and what to expect when the Volkswagen electric bus arrives on Kalkaska streets.

Used Volkswagen Bus Rentals

Some businesses focus on vintage vehicle rentals and will have used Volkswagen bus rentals in their inventory. There are several models that could be available. The names to look for are:

  • Volkswagen Bus Tent
  • Volkswagen Camper Van
  • Volkswagen Hightop Camper Van
  • Volkswagen Type 2 (T1) Microbus
  • Volkswagen Type 2 (T2) “Bay Window” Bus
  • Volkswagen Samba-Bus or Deluxe Microbus
  • Volkswagen Westfalia Camping Van

If you’re not sure which one matches what you have in mind, take a look on Turo.

The New Volkswagen Electric Bus

A Volkswagen bus for the next generation will hit the streets in 2022! And even better, this time the bus is an electric vehicle! While the new VW bus is still in the concept stage, we do know a little bit about what to expect:

  • The new Volkswagen electric bus will use dual electric motors to generate 369 horsepower, and it is expected to offer an all-wheel drive drivetrain.
  • Two batteries are expected. The first will hold up to 48 kWh, and offer a predicted driving range of 200 miles. The second 110 kWh battery option is expected to provide an even more impressive 340-mile range. It’ll include a fast-charge system that should charge up to 80 percent of the battery in just 30 minutes.
  • According to the concept, each and every one of the new VW Microbus seats can be spun around or removed from the cabin. Even the front seats.
  • Car and Driver has predicted that the new bus will have some autonomous driving technology. You’ve never seen a road trip vehicle like this before.

While this all sounds like a far cry from the classic VW bus, the iconic looks of the original Type 2 model will be honored.
