What We Know

The first European versions of the ID.Buzz will come to market with a high-voltage lithium-ion battery providing gross energy content of 82 kWh (77 kWh net). The battery system supplies a 201-horsepower electric motor, which drives the rear axle. Maximum torque of 229 lb-ft is instantly available and the top speed is electronically limited to 90 mph. With DC-fast charging, the battery charge level can be replenished from 5 to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.

Volkswagen fans have long been awaiting a rebirth of their beloved Microbus; the modernized fun and funky styling of the ID.Buzz is especially appropriate for its high-tech powertrain. Bi-directional charging is promised, which will enable the new ID.Buzz to feed power that ties don’t need into the domestic (vehicle-to-home) grid. Eschewing leather and adding to its sustainable persona, the materials used for the seat covers, floor coverings, and roof liner of the ID.Buzz incorporate recycled material.
