Volkswagen is in the final phase of trials of the ID. Buzz prototypes with prototypes which are only slightly disguised. The ID. Buzz draws on the stylistic elements of the legendary T1, includingshort vehicle body overhangs, maximum utilisation of space on a minimal footprint, the classic division of the vehicle body design into an upper and lower level, plus the unmistakable face with its V-shape. And just like the original Bulli, the ID. Buzz has rear-wheel drive.
Unlike some other vehicles, the ID. Buzz is not based on a multi-use platform, but is an electric Bulli from the ground up based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB).
It will be launched with a 77kWh lithium-ion battery supplying a 150kW electric motor integrated into the rear axle. Top speed is limited at 145km/h. (Figures for range are not yet available).
We will take another look at the ID Buzz as more details are made available.
