Volkswagen’s announcement of an all-new, all-electric remake of the much-loved Kombi camper van this week has set the internet on fire. We take a closer look at the next generation of the four-wheeled wanderlust machine that (still!) has everybody talking.

Since 1950, the iconic Volkswagen Kombi—otherwise known as the Bus, Transporter, Microbus or Camper—has stolen the hearts and minds of outdoor enthusiasts around the world.

Best known for helping the hippies and surfers of the 1960s chase the endless summer wherever it led, the van—which enjoyed a multitude of updates and revisions over the years—achieved cult-like status thanks to its charm, good looks (even gracing the covers of Bob Dylan and Beach Boys albums) and its durability.
