Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ from Concept to Production
The beloved Volkswagen Type 2 (AKA Bus) has been out of production for quite some time, but it is coming back! The new generation will be available starting in 2022 and this time around, it will be completely electric! The return of this nostalgia-inducing vehicle is all thanks to Volkswagen fans who fell in love with the concept version that appeared in the 2017 auto show circuit.
Volkswagen’s Electric-Powered Compact Van
Although the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ gives a nod to the Type 2 model of yesteryear, it is outfitted with some new elements that will make it suitable for 21st Century driving. Instead of conventional mechanics, the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ runs on a powerful battery located underneath the vehicle’s floor. This battery allows the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ to release zero emissions, so it is very easy on the environment. It will also be able to travel great distances. The concept version of the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ is able to cover up to 270 miles on one charge, so we can expect to see a similar driving range with the production model.
Despite being a compact van (not a label we see too often), the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ is incredibly spacious and will be available with two variations: Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ Passenger and Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ Cargo. The passenger version has eight seats that can be swiveled around in different configurations to encourage a more social environment, no matter if it is on the road or in “Park”. The cargo version will provide an optimal amount of space for entrepreneurs who want to take their business on the road with a fun and eye-catching vehicle.
