Back in the 1960s, the original Volkswagen Beetle-based dune buggy was released, and now, Meyers Manx 2.0 modernizes it with an all-electric powertrain. Available in 20 kWh and 40 kWh variants, both with a 6 kW on-board charger and an optional 60 kW DC fast-charging capability, it boasts a dual electric motor setup, one in each rear wheel.
On a single charge, you’ll get up to 300-miles of driving range, while the highest-end model will generate 202 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque, enabling it to hit 60 mph in just 4.5-seconds. Unfortunately, it will be limited to just 50-units worldwide for the 2023 model year with pricing yet to be announced. Want to see it in person? Head on over to The Quail, a motorsports gathering, on August 19, 2022 at the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, California .

A lot of new startups want to get big, fast, and we’re low volume. We’re starting off walking before we run. That’s the main reason we want to do the 50 vehicles is that those are going to become more like test drivers. These are people that we will have relationships with. We will work out all the bugs and make sure that it’s perfect,” said Freeman Thomas, Famed Automotive Designer.
