The Volkswagen ID. Buzz collects the experience of the legendary Bulli and transfers it, without losing the essence, to the era of sustainability and digitization. With passenger and delivery versions.
In the 1950s, el Bulli represented the sense of freedom and independence; of a lifestyle. Seven decades and several generations after this iconic van, the electric version is presented, fully connected to the network and ready for autonomous driving. The premise includes two options, for passengers and for freight distribution, in both cases fully electric, ie free of CO2 emissions. In fact, they are two pioneering vehicles in their sustainability dynamics: their production and shipping have a zero carbon footprint. In that ecological sense, they use recycled synthetic materials, while the interior has no animal leather upholstery.
Innovative and connected software
The ID. Buzz starts with the latest software version of the ID. family, which identifies the Volkswagen electric vehicle range and sets new standards in its segment in terms of safety, comfort and charging systems. The ID. Buzz is based on the company’s scalable modular electric propulsion (MEB) platform, with an architecture that enables the evolutionary development of software and technology, and with Over-The-Air updates, both for new models and for models already delivered.
Advanced charging dynamics
The lithium-ion battery can be charged via wall boxes or public charging stations with 11 kW alternating current (AC). With a CCS plug in a DC fast charging station, the charging power increases to 170 kW; in this mode, it manages to go from 5% to 80% in about 30 minutes. The Plug & Charge function consists of the ID. Buzz authenticates itself to compatible DC fast charging stations via the charging connector, using the ISO 15118 standard. Vehicle-to-Home (bi-directional charging) enables the ID. Buzz returns excess energy from the vehicle’s battery to the user’s home network.
Carefully designed for a life in motion, with a very clear arrangement of the elements and optimal use of space. Comfortably accommodates five occupants (up to eight, depending on configurations). With 1,121 liters of luggage space, up to 2,205 with the second row seats folded down.
Zero emissions, with three seats in the front (two as an alternative) and a fixed 3.9 m3 partition for two Euro pallets transversely.
The systems for emergency braking (Front Assist) and Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist) are included as standard.
Artificial intelligence-based technology enables partially automated driving across the entire speed range, including assisted lane change on highways for the first time.
Automatically park on a previously saved route.
It comes standard with this advanced communication system: it uses signals from other vehicles and transport infrastructure to detect any danger in real time.
battery and motor
77 kWh unit (82 kWh gross power) for a 150 kW electric motor that, like the flat-top engine in the T1 once, drives the rear axle.
4,712 mm long, 1,938 mm high and 1,985 mm wide. Turning circle: 11.1 m. Aerodynamic coefficient: 0.285. Estimated autonomy: 500 km.
The iconic front with its V-shaped hood is retained between the charismatic -now- LED headlights. This also applies to the optional two-tone paint.
