VW launches iconic ‘ID.Buzz’ EV, but does this incarnation of the Microbus inspire the same love?

by Fred Lambert

Volkswagen has finally unveiled the production version of the ID.Buzz: a new electric version of the iconic VW microbus that now lives a segment of its own in the growing EV market.

But will it be loved as much as the original version?

At first glance, it looked like just one more cool electric vehicle concept that Volkswagen was teasing but would never bring to market. However, the company surprised many by stating that it was serious about bringing the vehicle to market by 2023.

Leading up to the start of production, several new prototypes of the ID.BUZZ have been spotted in the wild.

It got us worried, but the automaker has now fully unveiled the production version today and it got rid of most of our concerns.
