Volkswagen has teamed up with eClassics to create an electrified Beetle that's powered by technology from the VW e-up!. Based on the e-up!'s 1-speed gearbox and the battery system, the e-Beetle's powertrain won't break any speed records but gives it all the juice it needs with 80 hp and lithium-ion battery modules that deliver up to 36.8 kWh of power. When it comes to performance, the e-Beetle can get to 30 mph in under four seconds and will reach 50 mph in over eight seconds. The top speed is a little over 90 mph and you'll get a range of about 124 miles on a single charge.
