Meyers Manx 2.0

An Electric Dune Buggy

Bruce F. Meyers who passed away in 2014 at the age of 87, was the creator of the legendary Dune Buggy. An iconic VW Beatle-based kits car produced by his company B. F. Meyers & Co. from 1964 to 1971.

The Meyers Dune Buggy was synonymous with the California lifestyle of the ’60s and ’70s. Much like the Beatle itself, instantly recognisable the world over – more so after staring in the 1968 Thomas Crown Affair with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway.

Fifty-five years later, the original Dune buggy is still in production, now manufactured by Meyers Manx, Inc., a US-based company clearly not willing to rest on its laurels with the announcement on Monday the 9th of August of their new electric Manx 2.0.

Keeping with the iconic styling of its predecessors, though without the iconic VW engine hanging out the back, the Electric Manx 2.0 features independent rear suspension and regenerative braking, with a 20kwh or 40kwh battery option giving the Buggy 202hp and up to 240 pound-feet of torque, with ranges of 150 or 300 miles depending on battery choice – top speed of 60mph.

The first 50 Manx 2.0 will ship in 2023 – For Availability outside of the US, tech specs and options contact Meyers Manx.
