The all-new Volkswagen ID Buzz electric van will finally debut March 9, alongside the VW ID Buzz cargo van. While you wait on that full information, VW has released new interior images detailing a lot of the ID Buzz’s cute little easter eggs, some surprising tools, and even smiley-faced screw caps as part of the final finish.
VW ID Buzz + Cargo
The new VW ID Buzz van will be introduced first for overseas markets as a five-seater and a cargo variant, both built on the automaker’s new MEB electric vehicle architecture found in various configurations under VW’s other new EVs like the ID3 and ID4. We expect the passenger version will make its way here later, after several delays held up the project.
VW says the space-saving qualities of the EV platform allow for up to 39.5 cubic feet of cargo storage in the five-seater, and up to 137.7 cubic feet in the cargo version with “a partition behind the first row of seats” equipped. The new van lineup is set to help VW achieve its goal of 50 percent EV sales mix in North America by 2030.
Custom ID Buzz Paint
VW says the new ID Buzz van will launch with seven paint colors, but of course the automaker is going retro with four additional two-tone paint schemes also available that harken back to the iconic T1 camper. All four of the two-tone paint jobs include the color white paired with another hue.
VW ID Buzz Interior
Interior options color-matched with each exterior paint choice will be available, including the seat cushions, dash panel and door trim. The cabin is also animal-free, instead opting for polyurethane leatherettes with “a similar feel” as leather. VW also introduces recycled materials in the seat covers, floor coverings and headliner.
Various tools are cleverly tucked away in the van cabin, VW says, including a bottle opener and a handy ice scraper, though their utility may be hampered by your inability to find them, since the release says they are “only discovered at second glance.”
Both the new Volkswagen ID Buzz and ID Buzz Cargo will debut at 10 a.m. Pacific time on March 9.
