We’ve talked about VW’s ID.Buzz earlier than. Lots of people have, truly.

That’s as a result of Volkswagen’s been teasing us with revived variations of the legendary T1 Microbus (AKA Samba Bus or “Hippie Van”) for many years now, and simply when it looks like a design idea will leap to manufacturing, VW scuttles the plan.

However not this time.


Whereas Volkswagen has already confirmed that the ID. Buzz was (lastly!) going to achieve the general public’s arms, we remained skeptical till the VW manufacturing facility in Hanover, Germany began tooling up.

And earlier this yr, that occurred.

Because the headline mentions, the ID.Buzz shall be an all-electric automobile, with zero tailpipe emissions. Its 210 horsepower electrical motor drives the rear wheels and VW says the ID.Buzz could have an electronically-limited prime velocity of 90 mph. No phrase on an estimated vary but although.

The battery sits low, alongside the ground of the bus, offering loads of cargo house within the cabin.


Talking of cargo house, along with the five-passenger ID.Buzz, there shall be a cargo van variant of the platform, with a aspect door and bulkhead separating the driving force and passenger from the cargo field.

VW additionally hinted at an upcoming six-seat model and an prolonged wheelbase seven-seat choice coming later.


And sure, VW plans to supply the ID.Buzz in a extensive colour palette and there are many proposed customized choices too.

VW says Euro-spec fashions shall be in European showrooms by the tip of this yr. For us within the States, our North American model shall be revealed someday subsequent yr and it’ll go on sale as a 2024 mannequin.
