Up Buggy may go into production

One of the strangest cars we've seen a long time was the Volkswagen Buggy Up concept. Volkswagen has been granted a US design patent in the past few weeks on the vehicle hitting that the car may be taking the next step into production. The Up Buggy design was created by Klaus Bischoff.

The design is patented for the next 14 years. The design is said to be reminiscent of beach buggies that were popular in the 60s on the West Coast of the US. VW hopes that by drawing ties between the 60s when the brand was very popular in the US and its new models it can sell more cars.

Volkswagen sources have already said that the automaker would like to build the Buggy Up and are conducting market research to determine annual sales estimates for the vehicle. The car is expected to be a small volume vehicle using molded plastic body panels and the Up structure.
