Electric Brands has unveiled the eBussy, an electric vehicle that can come in various forms — including a bus, camper van, and pickup truck — by using modular attachments.

According to the Germany-based company’s website, the eBussy’s design is centered around the “Lego principle” by using a series of chassis attachments to create a multi-use vehicle.

Unlike other makers in, or newcomers to, the electric vehicle market, Electric Brands isn’t a veteran automaker or a new car-focused startup. According to the company’s website, the idea for the Lego-like vehicle came in late 2018 after the team decided to expand from its original product line of electric scooters, of which it currently has two. Now, the company is set to unveil the eBussy in 2021.

The eBussy starts with one of two chassis options: the “standard” and the “offroad”. From there, customers can select one of 10 body styles that best fits their needs, whether it be a camper van, dump truck, pickup truck, or bus.

The all-wheel-drive eBussy is then powered by two battery compartments. Each vehicle comes with eight removable lithium ion battery packs, providing 10 kilowatt-hours of power. However, the pack can be upgraded to 24 batteries that then provides 30 kilowatt-hours for those who want an extended range.

Options trading The vehicle’s solar panels and electric motors with an energy recuperation system gives the eBussy a range of up to 124 miles daily with the pack of eight batteries.
