Confirmed! Electric VW Microbus Coming in 2022

 

For many years, Volkswagen teased the concept of a retro-minivan without the intention to produce them. It's changing today. VW has just announced that in fact, really, seriously going to put a fully electric minibus, ID. Buzz, in production in 2022. We know. We, too, can not believe this.

We have seen ID. Buzz in conceptual form (pictured above) earlier this year at the Auto Show in Detroit, but we never expected it to enter production. Then, in media reports, it was suggested that the main brand of VW Herbert Dies actually insisted on getting ID. Buzz in production. Apparently, Dies got his way.
I.D. Buzz will ride a new modular electromobile platform Volkswagen (called MEB), which debuted at CES in January 2016. This platform, which is going to make its debut on production in ID. hatchback in 2020, integrates its battery into the floor, like Tesla. I.D. Buzz will also receive an optional all-wheel drive engine with electric motors on the front and rear axles.

It is this clever packaging that allows Buzz to exist at all. With all its transmission components mounted on the chassis, VW can freely carry a car with very short overhangs and an incredibly spacious interior, like the original. And unlike the original, this one will meet modern safety standards in a collision - something VW could not do with a modern bus with internal combustion.

VW says that the Buzz has the outside dimensions of a compact cargo van from the outside, offering the interior space of a large SUV. And, speaking of the cargo, VW will make delivery of the van version I.D. Gul.
When I.D. Buzz reaches production, it should include reconfigurable seating, like the concept we saw earlier this year, and it will offer self-contained driving at level 3. This is not complete autonomy, since it is required that the person behind the driver's seat pay attention, but ID Buzz will handle the steering, braking and acceleration independently in certain scenarios.

Expect to see I.D. Buzz in American dealers sometime in 2022, shortly after I.D. The hatchback hits the market.
