VW Bus Returns as an Electric Multi-Purpose Van
A spectacular and surprise show of last year was Volkswagen’s unveiling of the I.D. BUZZ concept vehicle. Bringing back the classic VW Bus design beloved by many of the last generation, the I.D. BUZZ takes that design and transforms it into a fashionable, affordable, and friendly EV (electronic vehicle).
Volkswagen I.D. Concept History
All-electronic, this concept of the I.D. BUZZ isn’t the first planned EV vehicle from Volkswagen, and it isn’t the last. The original I.D. electric concept was released back in 2016 as a hatchback/sedan model. More recently, Volkswagen has come out with their third concept I.D. EV vehicle with the I.D. CROZZ electric compact SUV. Altogether, Volkswagen hopes to perfect these designs with the latest technology and release them as a new branch of Volkswagen all-electric vehicles. The company is planning for them to frontline this new fleet of vehicles by 2020.
A VW Bus and Van Update and Upgrade
The Volkswagen Bus or Van most Americans are familiar with is either the Volkswagen Type 2 T1 Bus or the Volkswagen Type 2 T2 Bus. Generation 1, T1, stopped production in the United States in 1967. The second generation, T2, halted US production in 1979. That means that America hasn’t had a new Volkswagen Bus since before the 1980’s! Until now, that is.
The I.D. BUZZ concept electric MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) fills the classic VW Bus design with new life! There are still plenty of secrets to be revealed with this new Volkswagen EV, but what we already know is amazing! Built on a brand-new electric platform, the VW I.D. BUZZ will be fitted with a new type of lithium-ion battery pack and multiple electric motors to evenly distribute power. Meanwhile, the cabin is luxurious. Passengers seats in the back are customizable so you can literally create a den space with a secured table and counter space in the middle. Furthermore, the front seats include a clean dashboard with informative digital displays and a new adjustable electronic steering wheel.
