Following rumours earlier this year of a production future, talk of a 2013 market debut for Volkswagen's Bulli concept has surfaced again.

Built on the company's MQB production platform, which will underpin a wide range of new Volkswagen Group models, the Bulli 'microbus' concept debuted at this year's Geneva Motor Show.

The concept, shown in press images against a beach backdrop, offers a glimpse of a possible return for the iconic Kombi, remembered fondly as the transporter du jour for the hippies and surfies of the 60s and 70s.

A report by News Ltd this week suggests the Bulli has become a new priority for the German carmaker, keen to capitalise on the retro trend it helped to start with the 'New Beetle' in 1997.

The report offered few details, but Volkswagen is understood to be developing a business and production case for the van.

In concept form, the Bulli offers seating for six, thanks to the use of a 60:40 bench arrangement up front - common with many commercial vehicles, and reminiscent of many passengers vehicles of generations long past.

For couples hitting the road, the Bulli's seats can also fold flat to provide a sleeping space for two adults.

Power is provided by an electric drivetrain borrowed from the company's upcoming E-Motion line, with a claimed driving range of up to 300km from one charge.
