An iconic vehicle, the Meyers Manx dune buggy was pioneered by Bruce Meyers in 1964. In addition to countless versions of the original Meyers Manx buggy from 1971, the company was refounded in 2000.
The Meyers Manx 2.0 is Meyers' first truly new vehicle in nearly 60 years, and it's electric as the name suggests. It's still a Manx, but Freeman Thomas, who designed the original Audi TT, Panoz Roadster, and Volkswagen New Beetle, gave it some rad styling updates.
An electric version of the Meyers Manx dune buggy has been developed.
The Meyers Manx 2.0 Electric looks adorable.
The biggest changes are at the rear, where the engine is no longer exposed.
The styling was done by Freeman Thomas, who designed the Audi TT and VW New Beetle.
A 40-kWh battery pack can give it a 300-mile range, while the 20-kWh model can go 150 miles.
This 40-kWh version will accelerate to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, according to Meyers Manx.
A very cool interior can be found here.
A total of 50 'Beta' units will be sold to customers in 2023, and full production will begin in 2024
The Manx 2.0 will debut at The Quail on Aug. 19.
