Volkswagen revealed when you can hit the road in his electric minibus. The ID 2024.Buzz will be available in the United States in 2023, the year after the vehicle first goes on sale in Europe, VW said. Car and driver.
The automaker will offer more versions of the EV in Europe than in North America, namely passenger and commercial variants with short and long wheelbase options. US buyers can only pick up the Buzz ID in a passenger long-wheelbase format. Eventually there will be a fully stand-alone version of the ID.Buzz sales representative in Europe. It will be the VW Group’s first fully autonomous vehicle. However, this variant is unlikely to come to the United States either.
The entry-level ID.Buzz will likely be a rear-drive model with around 200 horsepower, according to Car and driver. At the high end, VW will offer an all-wheel drive version with up to 300 hp.
At least in Europe, VW is sticking to its original timeline for the ID.Buzz. This said in 2017 that it had a target release window of 2022. It won’t meet that timeline in the US, unfortunately, but at least the company has given specifics on when it will arrive.
