Volkswagen I.D. Buzz Electric Microbus

The hype machine for this VW concept has been ramping up for a while now. The iconic German auto maker first teased a version of the vehicle back in 2015, and then again earlier this year. So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that they used this year’s Concourse D’elegance at Pebble Beach as an opportunity to further stoke excitement the Volkswagen I.D. Buzz Electric Microbus.

The modernized microbus is slated to be realized in the U.S. in 2022 with level 3 autonomous driving capabilities and a fully electric engine. Or, put a different way – it’ll be the Tesla of vans. Right now there is no word on exactly what the range is going to be on the four-door traveling van. We can assume, however, that it will at least be in the ballpark of 270 miles per charge (which is what the concept version of the vehicle is getting now). Other features we do know about include an all-wheel drive option, the ability to flip down or move seats to accommodate for more gear storage, and rear view cameras in lieu of mirrors. Better start saving now.
