VW Bus Lightweight Construction
How do you save 800 kg in a car? This fair booth shows it, VW Bus with only 1140 kg of empty weight. The lightest of the current generation weighs 1946 kg.
Let's make a few concessions for more comfort and more safety. What could be more comfort and more safety with a 9 seater? 200 kg? 300 kg? Maybe even 400 kg? But under no circumstances 800 kg. This is a VW beetle more, my first car, a VW beetle 1500 weighed 810 kg.
As a percentage, the new weighs 70% more. This is like a slim beauty with 56 kg have married and 50 years later she weighs 96 kg.
With 7-speed DSG, the new is even 2093 kg. 953 kg additional weight. My second car, a VW Passat built in 1979, weighed 925 kg.
