A few days after announcing its prices, the new Volkswagen ID.Buzz can now be configured online on the manufacturer’s website. The latter took the opportunity to announce the delivery date for the first orders: from the fourth quarter of 2022. The configurator also provides details on the WLTP autonomy which turns out to be better than expected, at more than 400 WLTP kilometers.
Only a few more months to wait before seeing the first copies of the new Volkswagen ID.Buzz arrive on the roads. Foreshadowed by the Bulli concepts in 2011 and ID.Buzz Concept unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show in 2017, the German brand’s electric van was officially unveiled last March, in its final form.
A newcomer to the manufacturer’s trendy range, alongside the Volkswagen ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5, a coupé version which will soon be available in dealerships. An equally imminent arrival in showrooms for the ID.Buzz, whose prices were recently unveiled a few days ago. Today, the electric van can now be configured online, directly from the Volkswagen Utilitaires site.
More than 400 km of autonomy
At its launch, only two versions will be available, namely the Pro variant, intended for individuals and the Cargo version, which takes the form of a van, rather designed for professionals. Only one finish will therefore be accessible to customers who would like to buy the ID.Buzz Pro, with a 77 kWh battery and no less than 204 horsepower. The WLTP autonomy has finally been announced: 421 kilometers. It is therefore better than the first estimates which gave less than 400 km WLTP. Rather well equipped, this version comes standard with LED headlights, a heated multifunction steering wheel and a 10-inch touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wirelessly.
For its part, the Cargo version is also rather well equipped, since it includes as standard a double bench seat for the front passengers, cruise control and predictive speed limiter as well as automatic air conditioning in one zone, against two for the version intended for individuals. This variant is also distinguished by its rear doors with leaves, facilitating access to the loading area. This version uses the technical sheet of the ID.Buzz Pro, and can browse about 425 kilometers on a single charge according to the WLTP cycle.
Deliveries for the end of the year
If you want to order this new Volkswagen ID.Buzz, be aware that you will have to pay at least €56,990 for the Pro version, while the Cargo version is displayed from €57,588, or €47,990 excluding tax, for professionals. . Prices certainly high, but which do not take into account the ecological bonus. The two vehicles are indeed eligible for a little help from the State up to €2,000, because of their price exceeding the €45,000 mark. If this were to increase to €1,000 on July 1, it could ultimately remain as it is, as the Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, would like.
Note that the ID.Buzz is still cheaper than the Tesla Model Y Grande Autonomie, displayed from €62,990, which therefore cannot benefit from the ecological bonus. However, we will have to wait for the arrival of the seven-seater version of the German van to be able to make more precise comparisons. Produced at the Hanover plant, the new Volkswagen ID.Buzz will begin deliveries from the fourth quarter of 2022 as the brand told us.
