Two VW ID. Buzz start road-trip to Barcelona for media event

Volkswagen teased the latest EV that will join its lineup, the VW ID. Buzz with a video on its social media channels.

The ID. Buzz is in pre-production and is already making its way to Barcelona from VW’s Hanover plant.

However, looking closely at the vehicles, it seems like there will be two versions of the ID. Buzz. One car has two rear sliding doors, while the other only has one.

VW did not confirm the variations the vehicle will come in.

The “covered drive” event is not an official unveiling. Instead, VW will unveil the ID. Buzz to the public at a March 9 event.

However, we still do not know a lot about the vehicle.

In terms of specs, many speculate that the ID. Buzz will have a battery capacity of 111 kWh. In addition, the vehicle should be built on the MEB platform. Other than that, we will have to wait.

We know that VW is planning a passenger (ID. Buzz) and cargo version (ID. Buzz Cargo) for Europe. While the United States will get a different passenger version (ID. California)  with a long-wheelbase model. As well, VW confirmed that the only manufacturing location for the ID. Buzz, ID. Buzz Cargo and ID. California will be Hanover.

VW will launch the ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo in Europe in the third quarter of 2022. However, the ID. California will be a later launch in 2023.
