Volkswagen ID.Buzz, the official debut of the electric Bulli is approaching

Cars News

It will be officially presented on March 9, yet Volkswagen could not resist sharing the first photos and info of the ID.Buzz, the new battery-powered minivan that extends the German brand’s electron offer. In the DNA of the model, expected on the road during the year, are the genes of the famous Transporter T1, which has become a four-wheeled icon of the 1950s and 1960s.

The vehicle will be available in a passenger version, with five seats, and a “cargo” version, intended for commercial use. The first is 471 cm long and has a cargo volume of 1,121 liters. The second reaches 490 cm and boasts a cargo volume of 3.9 square meters. Under the skin is the modular Meb platform, engineered by Volkswagen for battery-powered cars and already shared with ID.3 and ID.4. The powertrain with zero local emissions is powered by a 77 kWh lithium battery, connected to a 204 HP engine (the maximum speed of the vehicle is limited to 145 km / h), discharged to the ground by the rear traction wheels.

The Buzz will also be able to function as a sort of large battery on wheels, being able to transfer the energy stored in its accumulator to the grid. The car will be upgradeable over-the-air and will have technologies such as the automatic parking system and connection to intelligent infrastructures – it allows you to receive real-time information on traffic or any dangers present on the route – as well as an autonomous driving system. Level 2, complete with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and active lane keeping.
