'Bold, brave and beautiful' - Top Gear Electric Car Of The Year 2022
Imagine the iconic 'VeeDub' T1 re-imagined for the electric age. Then you have the Volkswagen ID. Buzz.
This concept van is now a reality. With its 'smiley face', it is spacious and energy efficient, with a touch-sensitive steering wheel, moveable LED headlamps and self-driving mode. Retaining its sense of freedom and personality, the Volkswagen ID. Buzz harnesses the energy of the future to bring you a zero emission electric vehicle.
Based on the modular electric drive kit platform (MEB), which allows different battery options for different vehicle purposes and budgets. The ID. Buzz is the next generation of MPV and follows along the ID family - after the ID.3, ID.4 and now ID.5.
The ID. Buzz has been designed for maximum use of interior space and flexible seating to adapt to your needs. It uses AR head-up display technology to guide you to where you want to go. Its LED 'eyes' can indicate to other drivers and pedestrians that you are about to turn a corner for example. It can 'look' towards pedestrians or cyclists and use subtle signals to let them know you're there. The steering wheel and cockpit display are simplified to an intuitive touchpad on the steering wheel.
The ID.Buzz is rear wheel drive. It is 20cms longer than the Caddy Cargo, and 20cms shorter than the T6.1. It has a capacity of 4 cubic metres. The first version will be short wheel based.
Is it a van, a mobile living space or a creative hub? The choice is yours, but it can be all three.
The ID.Buzz is available in 3 trim levels - Life, Style and 1st Edition.
At the recent press 'first drive' event, the media commented on its comfort and refinement. The beloved classic has been reinvented for the modern world they said. Campers and 'veedubs' have an emotional connection. You usually can't get a vehicle that you both 'need' and 'want', but the ID.Buzz says you can. Suffice to say, they were impressed! Top Gear's Electric Awards 2022 have crowned the Volkswagen ID.Buzz 'Electric Car Of The Year'.

Here's what our Managing Director had to say on returning from Volkswagen's ID.Buzz launch event in Copenhagen. He got a chance to drive the ID.Buzz and check out all its features ...
“I was a little apprehensive at how re-imagining this iconic VW for the electric age would work, but WOW! An amazing drive, so smooth, and so much technology on board. A real innovation for the driving experience. This is going to be an amazing leap forward for electric driving and its potential to adapt to so many uses as a zero emission electric vehicle.”
The ID.Buzz 7 seater version is set to be one of the most spacious electric vehicles. It's key highlights that we know so far are that it is....
Spacey: the new ID. Buzz1 with long wheelbase is one of the most spacious electric vehicles, with room for up to seven people and a large luggage compartment
Has a High-efficiency drive system: at its launch, the ID. Buzz with long wheelbase will be optionally available in Europe and North America with new 85 kWh battery (net) and new 210 kW electric drive motor
Is a Samba bus for the modern age: newly developed panoramic sunroof with electronically controlled tinting is the largest glass roof ever produced by Volkswagen
Has the Latest ID. software: a further developed generation of the infotainment system with the latest software and new head-up display make their debut in the large ID. Buzz. IDA voice assistant can interpret statements such as 'I feel cold' by turning up the heating by one degree! Innovative assist systems help the driver with a host of options.
The flexible seating options give you plenty of choice. Depending on the configuration, this ID. Buzz can be used as a five-seater (2/3), six-seater (2/2/2 with individual seats and armrests in the second seat row), and as a seven-seater (2/3/2). The front passenger seat, outer seats in the second row and seats in the third row are equipped as standard with ISOFIX child seat anchor points and top tether.
The battery can be charged at rapid charging stations (DC) with a peak charging capacity of up to 200 kW. The large battery can therefore be charged from 10 to 80 percent in just 25 minutes. On the road, a new thermal management system ensures that the battery is preconditioned on the way to the next DC charging station - so new energy can be charged as quickly as possible.
This ID.Buzz will be one of the world's most sustainable vehicles.
