New small Chinese van: cute and modern rendition of the old VW Bus

 






I think this is great! So far, no idea who is making this. Probably one of these many small Chinese brands. 
Stupid VW has been taking forever (still no prototype driving around!) to revive the old retro Bus. I am glad someone else got inspired. The idea of a compact little van with cool retro styling is still a great one.

This would be a great little camper van. I am sure there could even be a market for something like this in the US.
Apparently it is powered by a small 1.5 Liter Plug-in hybrid powertrain.  Which is even better!

Who wants to see this over here?

Other than the taillights and headlights (needing to be raised up several inches) the rest of it is really cool.

Is a Uyghurs - human leather seats option?
I'll bet you'll be first in line if there is.

Looks like it says Songsan Motors on it.

ironic to see the Chinese beat VW to market. other than bad proportions on the front end,the rest looks pretty good.
