The Bug is a car manufactured by Volkswagen and first introduced in Neo Tribes.


The Bug is similar to the "people's car" that was all to popular in the 1960s. The Bugs production was discontinued in the U.S. in 1974, but South and Central America still produced the Bug well into the Collapse. Most nomads Bugs are 5th or 6th owner vehicles, having been rebuilt many times. The Bug is a popular sight around Nomad camps because of how common they are.[1][2]
Because the Bug was manufactured in the millions they are commonly seen as Nomads scout vehicles, and there simple construction make them light, fast, reliable and extremely versatile in the desert. The bug generally features a roof rack (to help with its limited cargo space), additional lights (for night runs), a long range radio and a light machine gun.[1][2]
