The long-awaited production version of the Volkswagen ID Buzz has been revealed. The ID Buzz and ID Buzz Cargo represent Europe’s first all-electric MPV and van range, transferring the design of one of the greatest automobile icons – the T1 – to the era of electric mobility.

So what do you need to know about the new launches?

• The design pays homage to the T1 with the designer, Jozef Kabaň creating a direct link with the original classic vehicle: “In the T1 you are practically sitting on top of the front axle – there’s no front overhang. While providing everything of relevance to safety and technology, the ID Buzz has wonderfully short overhangs.”

• The compact overall length of 4,712 mm is accompanied by what in comparison is a very long wheelbase (2,988 mm).

• A high percentage of recycled materials and no use of real leather in the interior complete VW’s sustainability strategy; the ID Buzz is made and shipped with a carbon-neutral footprint – a first for an MPV and van range.

• The ID Buzz provides space for five persons and 1,121 litres of luggage – the Cargo has space for two euro pallets

• The model line is being produced by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles at its main plant in Hannover.

• Pricing is yet to be announced, but expect to start at around £40,000 for the van and increase to close to £50,000 for the MPV

The models will come onto the market in the first few European countries this autumn. Advance sales are due to start in May.
