Preserving the Beetle’s greenhouse, Theottle adapted the IONIQ 6 side, front, and roof to the Volkswagen images. Checking the final result, it looks so natural that it may seem that there was hardly any work in creating these images. We recommend that you watch the video below not to believe that: Theottle had a lot of work making this Beetle from Hyundai seem so convincing.
The third-generation Beetle was built over the PQ35 platform and had a 99.9-inch (2.54-meter) wheelbase. The IONIQ 6 has a 116.1-in (2.95-m) wheelbase. There’s a 16.2-in (41-centimeter) difference. Supposing Theottle extended it halfway, the IONIQ 2 would have a 108-in (2.74-m) wheelbase, which is pretty decent for any car. The hypothetical EV would only have to be classified as something else: a C-segment vehicle instead of belonging to the B-segment.
If such a vehicle were ever built, it would definitely need a frunk. The rear cargo compartment would be small due to the droopy trunk lid. Another issue this car would have is that it would not be as aerodynamic as the IONIQ 6. That said, this Beetle shape would not help it be a better product. Hyundai would also not be able to explore the similarities. Or would it? Volkswagen has yet to complain or sue Great Wall for the Punk Cat or Ballet Cat.
