The legendary bus from Volkswagen is back.  Electric vehicle ID.  Buzz is bigger than Sharan

The legendary bus from Volkswagen is back. Electric vehicle ID. Buzz is bigger than Sharan

Volkswagen introduced one of the most anticipated electric cars this year. Five years after the original concept, he came up with a serialized version of the reincarnation of the legendary “bus” known as the VW T1. The news item is called an identifier. The Buzz along with the personal variant also comes in the form of a pickup truck.

The Volkswagen Electric ID family is expanding to include the largest member yet. ID. After the ID.3 hatchback, SUV ID.4, ID.5 and ID.6, Buzz is the brand’s first full-size jack model (it will also be offered as a pickup truck). Not surprisingly, the foundation is the modular MEB platform. ID. The Buzz is 4,712 mm long, but the wheelbase stretches to 2,988 mm – which means it’s significantly shorter than the larger T6.1 or Sharan series, but it practically calls the first with the wheelbase and even surpasses the second. The car is 1937 mm high and 1985 mm wide, so it is definitely not a small car.

The interior space also proves it. Personal version identifier. Buzz can carry five passengers and 1,121 liters of cargo or two passengers and 2,205 liters of cargo, Utility Model Id. Buzz Cargo has two or three seats up front and space in the cargo area for 3.9 cubic meters of cargo or two euro pallets. The carrying capacity of the electric current is 650 kg. The wood floor cargo area can be accessed through a rear door or sliding side door. A second side door will be available at an additional cost. This personal version has a pair of sliding side doors as standard.

It’s hard to surprise the connective electrodes. From other Volkswagen electric warehouses, it borrows the largest battery with a capacity of 77 kWh (later a version with a lower capacity will arrive) and an electric motor on the rear axle with a power of 150 kW and torque of 310 Nm. The maximum speed is limited to 145 km / h, and the range has not yet been determined by the automaker. The maximum charging power when using direct current is 170 kW and when using alternating current is 11 kW. In the first case, it is possible to obtain from five to 80 percent of the capacity in half an hour.

The known technique is in the case of the model identifier. The Buzz is wrapped in a retro jacket that references the T1 style directly. Volkswagen is also irrelevant: “With ID. Buzz, we are taking the DNA of the T1 type to the present day, that is, the era of electric mobility and sustainability,” says chief designer of the German company Jozef Kabaň. In addition to the original form, the novelty follows a five-year-old concept. The basic shapes with short overhangs are the same as for the Concept and Production Edition, and there’s also a two-tone panel with a white upper and a body-colored lower part. There are four shades available in two colors – blue, green, orange and yellow, ID. But Buzz will also be presented in monochrome varnish. However, the front “bonnet” and the V-shaped roof will always be white, regardless of the one-tone or two-tone paint.

LED headlights dominate the front sections, and for an extra charge even an array with permanent high-beam illumination and coverage for oncoming vehicles. As is customary at Volkswagen recently, the headlights are attached to a light strip, which is affected only by the large company logo. This is larger than on other models of the brand, which should be an homage to the already mentioned T1. The rear is very similar in design to the Multivan T7, because the headlights are oriented horizontally, but for the first time in a VW commercial car they are connected by a light strip.

Volkswagen describes its electric novelty as “one of the most sustainable model lines in the world”, something that is emphasized above all by the interior materials. ID. Buzz does not use leather or other materials of animal origin at all. The steering wheel is therefore covered with a synthetic material that resembles leather and has the same tactile properties, and some of the covers offered and the carpet or roof upholstery are intended to be changed from recycled products. The cab then features a higher position behind the steering wheel, or optionally, a color scheme that complements the body paint. There are four colors offered – blue, green, orange and yellow. The basic equipment also has armrests inside the front seats.

The rest of the cabin is consistent in design with other models of the ID family. That means 5.3-inch digital alarms that adjust with the steering wheel, complete with a 10- or 12-inch center touchscreen. The larger diameter indicates the presence of a navigation system, and the multimedia system is also integrated with mobile phones and remote updating as standard. What is also identical with other VW models is the air conditioning or volume control using touch panels. The Personal Edition then has up to eight USB-C ports, while the Utility Edition has a maximum of five.

An interesting novelty is the so-called BuzzBox, a removable storage box between a pair of front seats, which also includes an ice scraper and opener. In the utility version, the top of this box is adapted to the location of the laptop, for example, and there is also an additional drink holder.

The Hanover plant will be responsible for production, and Volkswagen pledges that production and delivery will be carbon neutral in Europe. Pre-sale ID. Buzz will launch in June, so far in a Pro version with a larger battery, and a base Pure model with a smaller battery will be added later. Next year, a version with an extended wheelbase, a seven-seater variant and, according to speculation, a residential electric car are also planned in California.
