While the design changes are more evolutionary, the powertrain leap is revolutionary. The 2.0 ditches the long-running Volkswagen-sourced engine for electric power, bringing the original dune buggy into modern times. The standard battery is a 20 kWh unit; a 40 kWh pack with 202 hp (and 240 lb.-ft. of torque) is optional. Frankly, electric power makes sense—most of these are used as beach-town runabouts, so the estimated 150 and 300 miles of range for the base and optional battery packs should be more than enough. That electric power makes the buggy properly quick, too: 0–60 takes only 4.5 seconds for the more powerful model. That the whole thing only weighs 1,650 pounds (1,500 pounds in the case of the base version) helps its case. Charging is convenient, too, with a 6 kW onboard charger that can max out at 60 kW.
