The first-ever VW ID. Buzz is the latest all-electric microbus from Volkswagen. The ID. Buzz represents Volkswagen’s commitment to sustainability and mobility through electric vehicles. The VW ID. Buzz is helping Volkswagen to reclaim its rightful place as the cultural icon they once were. The Volkswagen glory days of the VW Beetle and Bus and those iconic vehicles inspired cultural change in society. The VW ID. Buzz is a new take on a VW classic, in an all-electric form. The two zero-tailpipe emission vehicles transfer the design of one of the greatest automobile icons—the T1 Microbus—to the era of electric mobility. The ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo are launching in Europe this year in the normal-wheelbase form. In 2023, extended wheelbase versions of both ID. Buzz models will arrive on the European market: the U.S. version, arriving in 2024, will be based off the long-wheelbase passenger model.
The new ID. Buzz is built on a Modular Electric Drive (MEB) platform, which is the future of the ID. family. The architecture of the MEB will fundamentally change electric cars and cars in general. The MEB is the world’s first scalable large-production-run platform, and it provides the basis across the brands for all sorts of different models and segments. At present, 30 percent of all-electric vehicles in the Volkswagen Group are already based on the MEB. By 2025, it’s planned to be more than 80 percent. For Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, the all-electric ID. Buzz is an important building block in order to continually help reduce the carbon footprint of the whole product portfolio.
The battery in the VW ID. Buzz is mounted in the floor of the vehicle, giving the ID. Buzz agile handling for a vehicle of its size. The charging power when using alternating current (AC) is 11 kW. With DC-fast charging, the battery charge level rises from 5 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
The ID. Buzz features a spacious cabin, which maximizes utility and comfort while dazzling with high-tech features and an interplay of colors and materials. The standard length ID. Buzz will launch with five seats. Driver and front-seat passengers sit on individual seats with adjustable armrests (standard on the inside, optional on the outside). Integrated into the backrests of each front seat is a side thorax airbag, and in the driver’s seat, there is also a center airbag, which in the event of a crash protects the driver and front-seat passenger from hitting each other.
