Volkswagen Id Buzz
Automaker will invest $800 million and create 1,000 new jobs.
We'd love to see this in some vintage racing colors.
Volkswagen is displaying the commercial version of its I.D. Buzz at the IAA show in Hannover, Germany. A production version could be ready by 2021.
Volkswagen is literally laying bare its plans for millions of upcoming electric-powered cars and trucks. Called the MEB platform, this dedicated EV chassis is set to form the backbone of the German automaker's electrification effort.
Top exec says VW 'wants to localize electric mobility in the U.S.'
Not all are actually concepts, but they're still cool.
Surf's up, van up, whatever. The Bus returns in five years.
Passenger and commercial versions are possible.
The regular I.D. comes out earlier, but we probably won't get it.
The EV is styled like the old Microbus.
One area that can significantly enhance EV performance is aerodynamic optimization.
The Volkswagen I.D. Buzz showcases the company's future, while displaying it with retro styling. It debuted at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.
