Would've been great if VW had made the Type 3 engine standard, clearing some space in the engine bay to eventually fit the battery there for example. When it comes to turning the Beetle into a hatchback, I guess the Brasília was the closest approach to that proposal. Well, it would clearly benefit from the Type 3 engine, since it would allow some useful load space.
