VW ID Buzz Concept

There are few vehicles more beloved than the Volkswagen Bus, and now VW is teasing a future version of that vehicle with the VW ID Buzz Concept. While the original Volkswagen Microbus hasn’t been sold for forty years, there are still plenty of vintage examples on the roads today. The I.D. Buzz is a new take on the famous profile. Here at Larry Roesch Volkswagen, we know drivers in Elmhurst and Schaumburg would love to see this new VW bus concept make it to market. Find out more about the concept, which debuted at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year.

Volkswagen Future Bus Buzz

The Volkswagen I.D. Buzz concept was a clear throwback to the original “Type 2” microbus. In fact, when it debuted, it was displayed alongside an original Type 2 in an identical lime and white two-tone paint job. While the two share a snub-nosed profile, the I.D. Buzz and the vintage microbus couldn’t be more different when it comes to technology.

The I.D. Buzz is built around electric power. That enables a totally different layout. Rather than building around an engine compartment and a gas tank, the I.D. Buzz is built around a battery pack that sits under the floor, and two electric motors that are set at each axle for all-wheel drive. Since there’s no need for an engine compartments, the overhangs are shorter, and the vehicle can better take advantage of its footprint. Seating for eight is possible, even in a relatively compact size.

Finally, designing around electric power makes it possible to emphasize aerodynamics. The flat nose of the I.D. Buzz is designed to cut through the wind easily to help make it even more efficient. The front end of the Buzz even hides a small trunk, just like the original Volkswagen Beetle, for one more throw-back touch.
