Volkswagen presented the ID.Buzz electric van

Based on the MEB platform, the ID. Buzz, with a smaller wheelbase, has five seats in the passenger version.

Buzz will be able to accommodate seven people in the cabin.

With the ID Buzz Cargo version there are two or three seats. The volume of the cargo space, which can hold two euro-pallets, is 3,900 liters, and the maximum permissible load is 650 kilograms.

Buyers in Europe will initially be able to count on an electric motor that develops 204 hp and 310 Nm of torque, and the vehicle is powered by batteries with a capacity of 82 kWh.

From next year ID. The Buzz will also be offered in combinations that include more power and more battery capacity, and VW has not yet revealed how many kilometers the current configuration already used in the ID.4 electric model delivers.
