Volkswagen took the stage at CES to unveil their latest innovation in electric cars, the BUDD-e Concept Volkswagen bus, which the company is calling a “gateway to the future.”

The concept bus is based on Volkswagen’s new Modular Electric Platform that has been specifically created for electric vehicles. It uses both front and rear electric engines, each of which has been pushed as far to the front and back of the vehicle as possible in order to create a roomy interior. It uses a 101 kWh battery that gives it a range of up to 373 miles on one charge. It’ll hit a top speed of 93 mph. Most notably, Volkswagen threw around the term “cordless, inductive charging.” Inside the car, you’ll see a design like no other. Instead of a typical dashboard, the driver is provided with “Active Info Display”, a flexible instrument cluster that looks more like a gamer’s PC setup. Everything is controlled with voice commands or by multi-touch, and the car is even able to tell who is speaking in the car.
