2025 ID.Buzz

The 2024 ID.Buzz Headlights Illuminated in the Dark

The Much Anticipated Return of the MicroBus

It is hard to find a metric that could measure the level of anticipation of the return of the legendary Type 2, also known as the Microbus or simply the VW bus. The ID.Buzz isn’t quite here yet, as deliveries to Volkswagen of Duluth and the rest of the country are expected to begin in early 2024. But we can tell you almost everything you want to know right now.

The original Type 2 was purchased by a variety of people and households in its day but has since become most closely associated with the counterculture movement of the 60s and early 70s. In short: Hippies. While the ID.Buzz comes back as that vehicle’s spiritual reincarnation, it is also a very modern, comfortable, and well-equipped vehicle ready to take on everything conventional and unconventional families can throw at it.

Drivetrain and Mechanicals

What would have been the dream of any hippie owner of the original is that the Buzz is completely non-polluting. Like the original, the standard ID.Buzz has a rear-mounted powerplant and rear-wheel drive. Only now that powerplant is a quiet, smooth, and emission-free electric motor. While the pronounced slowness of the Microbus was almost an ironic badge of honor for its original owners, the rear motor produces 282 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque; the latter being close to five of its ancestors. An all-wheel-drive version will also be available at launch, using a second motor up front for a combined 330 horsepower. The motor(s) will draw energy from a 91 kWh battery spread out under the floor, giving the Buzz a low center of gravity that, again, owners of the original could only dream of. Range is not yet specified, but an educated guess points to approximately 260 miles with rear-wheel drive and about 250 with AWD.

Like the ID.4, the Buzz has a 4-wheel independent suspension with struts up front and a multi-link design in the rear. The wheels are pushed to the corners resulting in a whopping 127.5-inch wheelbase, which is over 10 inches longer than the Atlas though its short overhangs make it 8 inches shorter overall than the Atlas at 192.4 inches. Its 77.9-inch width is about the same as the Atlas, but it is about five inches taller. The coefficient of drag is just 0.29, which is most impressive for a vehicle of this general shape.


The ID.Buzz Interior is spacious and out of this worldWith its prominent (and now illuminated) front VW badge, available two-tone exterior colors, and D-Pillar vents, the Buzz contains several visual cues to its ancestor while simultaneously presenting an advanced design. Long, powered sliding doors provide easy access to the 3rd row as the 2nd row can be moved forward by 4 inches at the touch of a handle. At the rear is a standard hands-free power tailgate which will open and close with a light kick under the rear bumper. 

Inside, the standard Buzz will seat seven while available 2nd-row captain’s chairs change the occupancy to six. That can be six or seven pro basketball players because the legroom in both the 2nd and 3rd rows is quite generous. The 3rd row is also mounted as high as the 2nd row, so adult passengers back there won’t be breathing into their knees. All the seats will fold flat, and a “Flexboard” will create a flat cargo floor with additional space underneath. For more cargo space, the 3rd-row seats can be removed entirely. 

The dash is a very modern design featuring hidden vents, a “floating” 12.3-inch central touchscreen, and a 5.3-inch driver’s display mounted to the steering column. 30-color ambient lighting is standard, or drivers can select from five preset moods. Available is a 67.4- by 40.8-inch panoramic sunroof with electrochromic tinting that can change from clear to opaque with the swipe of a finger. 



The New ID. Buzz along side a vintage VW BusThe infotainment system is all-new with illuminated touch sliders for volume and temperature control, and primary climate functions take up permanent residence at the bottom of the screen. At the top is a control that opens the main menu with an overview of all installed apps. Next to it is the Car Control Center control, which offers direct access to the most important vehicle functions. Both of these can be accessed without exiting the active app.

All Buzz models have standard 12-way power front seats with memory for the driver. They also feature ventilation and even massage. Surely to be appreciated by anyone in the Duluth area, heated seats are standard on the front and outboard second-row seats. Also standard are heated windshield washer nozzles while a heated windshield is available. The standard Climatronic® automatic climate can activate and oscillate vents as you approach the vehicle to speed cabin comfort, and all three rows have dedicated air vents. Second- and third-row windows are tinted for privacy and also help maintain the interior temperature. The second-row seatbacks recline 16 degrees and move fore and aft by up to 7.9 inches to vary 2nd and 3rd-row legroom.

Naturally, the Buzz is quite adept with connectivity featuring standard wireless phone mirroring, wireless charging, and eight USB-C ports in the cabin. There is a 110V outlet under the passenger seat and 12-volt charging in the cargo area. A 14-speaker Harman Kardon stereo will be available. 

At the base of the windshield, you will find VW’s ID. Light system which is an LED light strip that provides the driver with various information using different light pulses to indicate readiness to drive, turn instructions from the navigation system, brake prompts from driver-assistance systems, and incoming phone calls. It also acknowledges that it heard a voice command and will indicate the current level of charge when charging Every ID.Buzz will come standard with IQ.DRIVE® driver assistance technology, featuring lane centering, Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Blind Spot Monitor, as well as Dynamic Road Sign Display. Available features include Head-up Display, Park Assist, including remote parking, and 360-degree Area View.
