The legendary beach buggy Meyers Manx is reborn. Instead of carrying an internal combustion engine, this beach buggy returns with electric technology and is called the Meyers Manx 2.0 Electric, featuring the iconic retro style of the original design.
As is known, the Meyers Manx as one of the most iconic vehicles of the 60s. This beach buggy car was first made in 1964 by Bruce Meyers. The Meyer Manx features a fiberglass body with an engine and transmission taken from a Volkswagen Beetle.
The current owner of the Meyers Manx brand, Trousdale Ventures, is bringing new life to this beach buggy in the form of the 2.0 Electric model.
Designed by Freeman Thomas, CEO of Meyers Manx, this electric beach buggy combines original iconic style without forgetting a modern twist.
This relatively short beach buggy features more prominent fender flares and a sort of hardtop that covers the interior. Thick off-road tires help the Meyers Manx Electric 2.0 tackle sandy terrain with the help of high ground clearance.
The Meyers Manx Electric 2.0 is offered in two battery pack options, namely a 20 kWh battery pack that has a maximum range of 241 km and a 40 kWh battery pack that has a range of 482 km on a full battery.
Weighing 680 kg or 750 kg depending on the choice of battery, the Manx 2.0 is claimed to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds.
