VW Previews Electric Bus
Aug. 26, 2020—Volkswagen is crafting a vehicle that is both nostalgic and retro. The Volkswagen I.D. Buzz is reminiscent of VW vans in the 70s, but will be the brand's first all-electric microbus. The microbus is said to have a driving range of 270 to 373 miles.
The I.D. Buzz is among the latest autonomous models that Volkswagen has invested in, in an effort to keep pace with the evolving industry and environmental concerns. According to CleanTechnica, Volkswagen board member, Josef Baumert, says "With the current measures we are systematically further implementing our strategy of automating and digitizing production."
The I.D. Buzz is rumored to cost around $40,000 and will enter production in 2022 to meet its 2023 release date.
