U.S Patent Office granted a patent for the concept of the Volkswagen Buggy Up!, Suggesting that VW has bigger plans for this model than the mere presentation of the concept. Buggy Up! shown in Frankfurt Motor Show 2011, and the mart 2012 filed application for patent protection.
This model is clearly a memory of the old buggy that in the 60-ies of the last century have become extremely popular on the west coast of the USA. The most common applications, driving on the beach. Former buggy was constructed on the basis of bugs, because its framework platform was perfect training ground for the realization of the concept of alternative body.

Sources within the company have already confirmed that there is a desire to Buggy Up! put into production, but they are waiting for the results of the market research that shows how much copies will be sold annually.
