2023 Volkswagen ID. Buzz Might Be Priced Below $50,000 To Start

The Volkswagen ID. Buzz electric microbus is on many families’ future shopping list and now they know how much money save up


  • The ID. Buzz is the very anticipated return of the VW microbus.

  • The entry-level Buzz would get a single-engine and 60kWh battery setup.


We’re going to be bold and predict that minivans will make a comeback, albeit a very small one. One such “monospace” will make one heck of a splash when it arrives in 2023 and that the all-electric Volkswagen ID. Buzz.

Details on the microbus-revival are trickling in such as the fact that there will be two versions, at least to start. Buyers will have the option to select between a 60- or 100kWh battery pack which will deliver, respectively, 300km or 500km of WLTP range.

Electrek reports that pricing will be set between 40,000 and 60,000 euros, or roughly the equivalent of $47,500 and $71,300 US. We’re assuming that, at $47,500, the ID. Buzz will be set up with a single rear motor. The same would apply with the larger battery for the $70,000 Buzz. This leads us to believe that a dual-motor 100kWh Buzz with a few options will easily reach the $75,000 mark.

Sadly, for us Canadians, this would indicate that the base price should hover at around $60,000 with a dual-motor 100kWh Buzz topping $85,000. At this price, one could buy a refurbished classic ‘60s microbus…
