The New VW ID-Buzz
VW pay homage to the original camper.. with the VW ID Buzz!
The new ID Buzz has definitely created a ‘buzz’ in the motoring world, with its retro looks and electric powertrain. It is now available for orders in the UK, with prices starting from around £46,000. For now, there’s a five-seater and a commercial version. However, VW have said 6 and 7 seater editions will come to the UK later on.
The ID Buzz commercial will set you back at around the £46,000 mark. The five-seater being around £9,000 more at £55,000. Your 55K will get you a Pro edition model, with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-departure warning, front and rear parking sensors and dual-zone climate control. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will come as standard, being displayed on a 10 inch infotainment screen. The driver gets a 5.3 inch digital drivers display
The battery is a 77kWh unit, taking just half an hour to go from 5% to 80%, thanks to 170kW charging capabilities. A full battery is likely to get you 260 miles of range, with a power output of 204hp from the all-electric motor.
On the passenger versions, features like the sliding door and upright windscreen are a nod to the original camper, the T2. There’s 11 different paint options available. Both being rather striking two-tone finishes.
Inside, there’s multiple different finishes you can choose from for the dashboard and door cards. It’s fairly simple, with a bit of a retro feel with the colourways. In the back, you get 1,121 litres of boot space with all 5 seats in place. Commercial versions of the ID Buzz have enough space to carry two, yes two Euro pallets with 3.9m3 worth of space.
Are you looking forward to the VW ID Buzz hitting UK roads? We are!
