BUT..... according to the article "Is Volkswagen planning a 2015 Microbus?", it's turning out though that there's no such vehicle and that this rumor has been floating around the Internet for a while and it just isn’t true. Volkswagen is NOT poised to introduce a new version of its legendary microbus.  The article quotes a Volkswagen company spokesperson  on this claim saying that Volkswagen did display a van-like concept vehicle, nicknamed "Bulli,"  at the Geneva auto show in 2011 and that the images being shown online may be based on that platform but was much smaller than the traditional VW van.

Furthermore, the company said it has no plans to start building a new microbus.

So...which article and who do we believe now?
