The Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo is all electric being built with maximum space, the latest technology and giving you the most flexible design to meet your needs.
The I.D Buzz’s cabin have already emerged showing a similar layout to the I.D 3 and I.D 4 models, but in a bigger and flatter van-sized layout. These include a digital driver’s display, largely buttonless touchscreen dashboard and a central infotainment system, but laid out in a logical and easy-to-follow fashion. It will most likely also come with the ID Light tech across the dashboard that lights up in different colours depending on battery charge status, navigation directions or voice activation. In Cargo form it’ll be a panel van with a completely flat load floor thanks to the EV powertrain, giving far better load space than other electric vans such as the Nissan eNV200, for example.
The space and size of the Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo puts it around the Volkswagen Transporter and the Caddy. The rear cargo area is 3.9 cubic meters which is big enough for two Euro pallets, which can accesses via a barn style door or a top hinge two with twin or single sliding doors at the side.
So far, only disguised pictures of the I.D Buzz have been seen, but they show that it clearly resembles the original prototype shown at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. There’s also a distinct family resemblance to the current Transporter in the I.D Buzz’s profile and front end shaping – it’s smaller, but the slab sides and chunky arches are familiar. It’ll initially be available in just the one size – roughly equivalent to the existing short wheelbase Transporter – but expect this to evolve as the I.D Buzz range expands and battery range improves to accommodate higher capacity models.
The big news here is that the I.D Buzz will feature cutting edge tech, but foremost among its innovations will be a full Level 4 autonomous driving system. Volkswagen Group has partnered with American technology giant Argo AI, with the aim of putting a self-driving electric van on the road by 2025 – in theory and capability even if legislation doesn’t fully allow it. The Level 4 autonomous system would need barely any input from the driver, reading the road and responding to incidents on its own. It’s clever stuff, but will probably only be allowed in certain trial cities in the model’s early phase.
The Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo is a fully electric zero emissions vehicle. The Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo batteries can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes when using a 170 kW DC fast charging system. The Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo has the plug & charge function making the charging authentication process quicker.
The over air updates for the Volkswagen I.D Buzz Cargo give you the ability to have the most up to date software features without having to visit a van center.
The I.D Buzz will be a highlight model of VW’s EV line-up and will use a selection pf batteries from 48kWh to 11kWh in size, the most capacious of which will offer up to 350 miles of range. There will be single and dual motor variants, with equivalent power outputs of 200bhp and 300bhp, fed to the rear wheels. Top speed will be limited to 99mph, but the more powerful model should hit 0-60mph in less than 10 seconds.
At present the I.D Buzz remains a prototype so official trim levels are a long way off being confirmed, but expect it to follow VW’s traditional Commercial Vehicle strategy – Trendline, Sportline and Highline. Later on, expect high roof and long-wheelbase variants
