I.D. Buzz Concept Latest Take on Microbus

Van Lovers Rejoice at Possible Comeback

Those who love the original VW Bus are rejoicing at the latest concept vehicle to make its appearance at the Detroit Auto Show. Named the I.D. Buzz Concept, the Volkswagen design hearkens back to a time when a driver’s only worry was if he or she could come up with 29 cents for a gallon of gas. Although the Buzz resembles the old VW bus in design, it is light years away in technology. The Buzz is a zero emissions versatile electric vehicle designed for the future, offering a compelling design to the possibilities the next decade will bring. Stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to see if and when the latest version of the Bus will be available for sale.

VW Shooting for 2020 Electric Assault

Volkswagen is working toward a new “electric offensive” in the year 2020 with a wide variety of electric vehicles available for sale. They haven’t confirmed that the Buzz will be part of that lineup, but with an electric range of up to 270 miles and seating for 8, there’s a good chance it would be welcomed by an SUV-loving America. “The Volkswagen brand’s big electric offensive begins in the year 2020 with a completely new vehicle architecture,” said VW Chairman of the Board Dr. Herbert Diess. “That is when we will be launching an entirely new generation of fully connected, all-electric vehicles to the market. By 2025 we want to be selling one million of these vehicles annually. We are making electric mobility the new trademark of Volkswagen.”

VW Set to ‘Make Future Real’

There’s been a lot of talk about electric vehicles and self-driving automation for a number of years, but VW is banking on its slogan “We make the future real” to show the public they are serious about changing the face of driving. By focusing on smart sustainability, automated driving, intuitive usability and creating a connected community, VW says it will overcome any reluctance Americans have toward a new mode of transportation. “The overall concept of the I.D. Buzz points the way to the future,” said VW board member Dr. Frank Welsch. “The concept vehicle is the world’s first electric multi-purpose vehicle to be equipped with a fully autonomous driving mode. It carries the feeling of freedom of the Microbus over to a completely new era of mobility.”
