If you’re looking for a Volkswagen bus for sale in the Louisville area, your options are pretty much limited to private sellers or vintage car dealers, although we have seen a few from time to time in the used car inventory here at Gebhardt Volkswagen. These unique and classic vehicles have a lot of appeal, but they’re getting harder and harder to find. If you do manage to locate one, you’ll be faced with having to deal with maintaining it and finding the right parts when needed.

We have some suggestions on how you can get behind the wheel of a vintage VW bus without having to purchase one. Also, we have the latest news on the rumors of a brand new VW bus that may be available in the near future.

Renting a VW Bus

There are some businesses out there that rent classic Volkswagen buses. It’s an easy way to enjoy the vintage style and unique versatility of this legendary VW without having to worry about maintenance costs.

Will There Be a New Volkswagen Bus?

According to Volkswagen, a brand new electric VW Bus is in the works and is expected to arrive at dealerships in 2022. This all-new model will be based upon the I.D. Buzz concept that was revealed at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. The vehicle will feature the VW Modular Electric Drive kit, and be based on the same platform as a future electric VW SUV inspired by the I.D. Crozz concept. The all-electric driving range is expected to be 300 miles, and with the VW fast-charge system, up to 80 percent of the battery can be recharged within 30 minutes. Even though this new VW bus will feature the latest advanced technologies, its styling will be based upon the classic look of the vintage bus.
