VW ID. Buzz
At the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Volkswagen grabbed the limelight when it debuted the I.D. Buzz concept — an all-electric van created in homage to the beloved T1 Microbus of years past. At the 2022 New York Auto Show, VW brought the long-awaited production version of ID. Buzz, although the show vehicle was specifically for the European market. (The U.S. version won’t be shown until sometime next year.) Designers of the ID. Buzz were able to take advantage of the vehicle’s electric drivetrain, which allows for short front and rear overhangs. This configuration maximizes interior space while keeping the overall footprint more compact than a similar vehicle with a conventional drivetrain. Up front , uniquely styled LED headlights have integrated daytime running lights and a slim, lateral light bar between the two headlights. The VW logo on the ID. Buzz is much larger than on other Volkswagen models — a throwback to the original T1 Microbus.
