VW CEO Herbert Diess has released sketches of a convertible electric car he said the automaker is "thinking" about bulding.

The drop-top is based on the new ID.3, which is a roughly Golf-sized compact four-door hatchback that's not sold in the U.S.

Diess didn't confirm that it will put it into production, but VW's modular skateboard-style electric platform was developed to accommodate a wide variety of vehicle types that ranges from subcompacts to minivans and has even been shown with a dune buggy body.
