Pre-sales of the new ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo start in Germany and most European markets on this coming Friday, 20 May. The zero-emission all-rounder can be ordered from this date – whether as an electric bus for the family, leisure activities or business, or as a delivery vehicle for companies.

Without taking into account the environmental bonus in Germany, the gross list price for the five-seater ID. Buzz Pro is 64,581.30 euros (in Germany). Gross prices for the ID. Buzz Cargo start from 54,430.60 euros (in Germany). The first vehicles will be delivered to customers in autumn this year.

With the start of pre-sales, Volkswagen’s electric strategy aimed at offering climate-neutral mobility in every segment continues to pick up speed. This is shown by the fact that the most important automotive trends can be found in the ID. Buzz: electric mobility, intelligent networking of the assist and information systems and over-the-air software updates. With long ranges and short charging times, the ID. Buzz is also a sustainable and economically efficient companion for everyday use, permitting operation with zero local emissions.

With the ID. Buzz, Volkswagen is adding another model to the successful ID. family, which consists of the ID.3, ID.4 and ID.5 in Europe, and is also picking up the pace of its electric offensive as part of the ACCELERATE strategy. By 2030, it is planned that at least 70 percent of Volkswagen’s sales in Europe will come from all-electric vehicles. The goal is to reduce CO2 emissions per vehicle by up to 40 percent as soon as 2030. On its Way to ZERO, the company intends to become climate-neutral by 2050 at the latest. The ID. Buzz and ID. Buzz Cargo are manufactured at the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles plant in Hannover and are carbon-neutral on handover to their customers. When charged using 100 percent green energy, the vehicles are already climate-neutral.

The five-seater ID. Buzz will be initially offered in the high-spec Pro version throughout Europe. The ID. Buzz Cargo will be available parallel to the market launch. For the market entry, the ID. Buzz will be equipped as standard with the largest battery of the ID. family so far. The lithium-ion battery offers an energy content of 77 kWh (82 kWh gross) and supplies a 150 kW (204 PS) electric drive motor at the rear with a torque of 310 Nm. The WLTP consumption: 20.6 kWh/100 km (Cargo: 20.4 kWh/100 km). The range is up to 421 kilometres (Cargo: 424 km). At a DC quick-charging station, the battery can be recharged from 5 to 80 percent of its capacity in around 30 minutes with a maximum charging power of up to 170 kW.

The new Plug & Charge function makes DC charging even more convenient: as soon as the customer plugs in the charging cable, encrypted and secure communication in accordance with the ISO 15118 standard starts between the car and charging station. This authentication process takes just a few seconds before charging starts. Billing then functions in the usual way via the We Charge contract. Plug & Charge will be available in the Ionity, Aral, bp, Enel, EON, Iberdrola and eviny networks in 2022.
