The Volkswagen Concept S is a creation of Mark Kruse, a junior level industrial designer working for Formation Design Group in Atlanta, GA. and a 2008 graduate of the University of Cincinnati.

The VW Concept S is a versatile, modular and affordable proposal for city dwellers. The vehicle was designed around a scenario of consumers who lived in a large city with limited street parking, and hobbies that required the storage of a truck or SUV. They need a vehicle that offers maximum storage in a compact size, and is more ecologically responsible than past vehicles.

The party trick of the Concept S is the fact it can be used in three different configurations. Stage 1 is a small hatchback similar in size to the Toyota Yaris. It boasts over 50 cu.ft. of storage space while closed. Using lightweight materials and thin modular seating, it has maximum storage in a very small area.

Stage 2 is a small 2 door Pickup. A truck bed section hidden within the walls of the vehicle adds storage space and functionality. The bed is covered with durable recycled High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and offers multiple tie-downpoints. Lift open the hatch and fold down the seats increasing the storage space to over 87 cu.ft. Large enough to store 3 adult size bikes, or 12 bags of mulch, or six large suitcases...etc.

Stage 3 is an open air storage vehicle. The driver simply lowers the tailgate, lifts the hatch, and folds down the seats, allowing them to haul nearly anything they can secure to the vehicle bed.

Powering the VW Concept S are four individual electric motors, one in each wheel hub. To further reduce the impact on the environment the vehicle is painted with water based paints.
