Volkswagen has rebooted its old microbus yet again, this time as a long-range electric vehicle.
The concept vehicle was being shown Sunday ahead of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It's yet to be seen if it will be produced.
The Volkswagen I.D. Buzz concept -- yes, that's the name -- has a range up to 270 miles per charge, which would put in it the heart of Tesla capability and about 30 miles better than General Motor's new Chevrolet Bolt, which just went on sale.
VW also says its concept would be the first "multi-purpose vehicle," er, minivan, to be fully capable of driving itself.
