The 2024 VW ID.Buzz electric car will go on sale in early June in the US

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Long wait for Volkswagen for identification.

VW has teamed up with an organization called the National Day Calendar to make June 2 the official minibus day, as reported by the Motorauthority page, Thursday (18/5). The date was deemed appropriate for the launch of the ID.Buzz as the electric car is the next generation of VW’s iconic car.

The first VW ID.Buzz show is scheduled to take place in Huntington Beach, California and will include live entertainment and Car and Coffee style meetings for car owners. VW has also confirmed that there will be no showroom displays for the ID.Buzz until 2024.

VW says customers in the U.S. will get the long-wheelbase version with three rows of seats as standard. The standard wheelbase version has been sold elsewhere since 2022, in two-row and stripless commercial configurations.

Additionally, VW is also working on a version of the California camper, which could make its debut.

The standard wheelbase version of the ID.Buzz van is just 185.5 inches long, or about 1.5 inches shorter than Tesla’s Model Y compact crossover. The long-wheelbase version has about 10 extra inches between the wheels.

The core of ID.Buzz is the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform designed for mainstream EVs. The platform is also available on the VW ID.4 which is already in US showrooms.

Although the largest battery on the current ID.Buzz is an 82-kwh unit, the long-wheelbase body can accommodate a larger battery. VW previously hinted at a 111-kwh battery, which would be large enough to provide a range of around 300 miles (482 km) on a single charge.

Production of the ID.Buzz is handled exclusively at the VW plant in Hannover, Germany. It’s the same factory that VW builds the T-series van line it sells overseas. The T series is actually the direct successor to the original Microbus, and it enters its seventh generation in 2021.

Reports say VW is considering adding the ID.Buzz to US production. The automaker has built the ID.4 at its Chattanooga, Tennessee plant.
