The upcoming Volkswagen ID. Buzz has not been launched but, however carwow managed to… launch it from 0 to 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in the course of the preliminary take a look at drive.
The camouflaged pre-production model (the 5-seat passenger one) with a 150 kW rear-wheel drive unit accelerated 0-60 mph in 9.78 seconds, in response to the video.
It is fairly good for a van of this measurement, particularly since doubtlessly there can be extra succesful variations (dual-motor, all-wheel-drive).
Nonetheless, the ID. Buzz can be noticeably slower than the smaller Volkswagen ID.4 with the identical/related rear-wheel drive unit.
Within the US, the 2022 ID.4 has an official 0-60 mph time beneath 8 seconds:
- ID.4 Professional 19″ (RWD, 150 kW): 7.7 seconds
- ID.4 Professional S 19″ (RWD, 150 kW): 7.8 seconds
- ID.4 AWD Professional 19″ (AWD, 220 kW): 5.7 seconds
- ID.4 AWD Professional S 19″ (AWD, 220 kW): 5.8 seconds
By way of vary, there isn’t a official estimate accessible but. Nevertheless it’s believed that the Volkswagen ID. Buzz with an 82 kWh battery (77 kWh usable capability) could have a noticeably decrease vary than the corresponding ID.4 model, primarily resulting from aerodynamics.
In keeping with carwow, the 17-mile mixed-cycle take a look at drive resulted in power consumption of 23.1 kWh/100 km (62 miles). Assuming a usable power capability of 77 kWh, the estimated vary could be then 207 miles (333 km).
The video consists of (8:22) an fascinating occasion when the automated emergency braking interrupted reversing to keep away from collision with a automobile that was passing by. That is an unplanned (take a look at), however a really constructive final result.
The Volkswagen ID. Buzz and Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo van can be launched in Europe in September. Launch within the US is scheduled for 2023, however will probably be an extended wheelbase model than the one presently demonstrated in Europe.
