There is that, then.

Those bodies-in-white are aftermarket. VW has partnered with eClassics to produce Type I roller-skates that use e-Up! drivetrain, batteries and fast charger.
Two such conversions have already been built by Volkswagen with its partner eClassics, which named the cars "E-Käfer," käfer translating from German as beetle. Both cars are described as "near-production" prototypes . or proof-of-concept vehicles that show how customer-commissioned E-Beetles could look if ordered en masse. As Volkswagen plans to neither revive the Beetle under its electric vehicle brand, ID, nor put the ID Buggy into production, the eClassics-built E-Käfer is effectively your only shot at owning a Volkswagen-approved electric Beetle.
The EU equivalent of US$44K, IIRC. Then you could make a wooden camper body and let them freak out about that instead.
