Volkswagen ID. Buzz, features, price and data sheet

  • 55

The mythical Volkswagen van, popularized by the hippie culture, already has electrical successor. We have officially met the Volkswagen ID. Buzz, one of the most anticipated rebirths with all-electric technology. It seems that zero emission vehicles are perfect for rescuing automobile myths such as the Renault 5 or the Opel Manta.


The van keeps some of the hallmarks of the classic model, such as the two-tone bodywork and an adventurous spirit that is reflected in a very spacious interior with a 1,121-litre boot with all five seats occupied, making it a perfect option for traveling.

The update of a classic

The launch of the Volkswagen ID. Buzz is the relaunch of a whole myth that maintains its essence. “”The T1, an icon of the 1950s, allowed people to gain mobility and freedom. with the ID Buzz, we are transferring this T1 DNA into the present and thus into the age of electric mobility,” said Jozef Kaba, Head of Volkswagen Design.

Therefore, in the new electric van, functionality prevails over form. Its dimensions and its concept of an electric vehicle allow it to achieve exceptional interior space. The large windows offer a very bright interior that, in its Cargo version (industrial) reaches 3.9 m3 of interior space, dispensing with the rear seats and with configurations of two or three front seats.

Technologically, the ID. Buzz collects all the advances of recent years. In matters of security, emergency braking, lane keeping assist and sign recognition will be available as standard. It is possible to add “Travel Assist”, which adds adaptive cruise control and assisted lane change on the highway. You can also include automatic parking, on a previously saved route, or the “Car2X” local alert system in the Cargo option, which uses data from other vehicles and infrastructure to alert you to possible dangers in real time. This is accompanied by the head-up display with interactive color information to show routes or alert of incidents on the road.

These ADAS driving aids are accompanied by a 10-inch Digital Cockpit screen for the instrument panel and another twin, also 10-inch, to house the entire infotainment system. The latter can grow as an option to 12 inches and add Volkswagen navigation services. The climate uses touch controls at the bottom of the screen.

It also has wireless charging and two outlets. USB Type-C ports to the right of the steering wheel. Depending on the equipment chosen, two more USB-C sockets can be added in the center console and a fifth socket in the passenger door, one more in each sliding door and the eighth (and last) next to the rearview mirror. The idea is, obviously, to have a multitude of shots on long trips or for those who want to camp.

As for its mechanics, this Volkswagen ID. Buzz arrives with a 150 kW motor (201 HP of power) and an 82 kWh battery with a useful capacity of 77 kWh. It can be recharged from 5 to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes, supporting fast charges of 170 kW. In alternating current, the van can be charged with 11 kW plugs. Of its consumption and autonomy, at the moment, there is no data, although we do know that it will be electronically limited to 145 km/h.

We tested the Volkswagen ID.3: we have already driven the electric car that aims to become as popular as the Golf

Volkswagen does point out that the delivery of electrical energy is bidirectional, so in the event of a blackout or any other incident, the vehicle can power a domestic installation with the accumulated energy. As for his launchingThere are no official prices either, although we do know that orders will be opened in Europe in May and the first deliveries will be made in the fall.
