Production Preparations For the New Multivan And ID. BUZZ Are Underway

Volkswagen’s Hannover, Germany plant will be completely remodeled and production of the new Multivan beings in 2021 while the ID. Buzz will be assembled as of 2022.


  • Both “vans” are part of the Bulli family, and Volkswagen’s Commercial vehicle line.

  • The new Multivan will be available as an ICE and a hybrid.

  • The ID. Buzz will be all-electric.


Volkswagen is hard at work converting its Hannover plant in preparation for the new Multivan and ID. Buzz, but in the process of building these new vehicles, will cut CO2 emissions by 4,200 tonnes annually.

Before anyone asks, there are no plans at Volkswagen of America to bring the T6 Multivan to North America. It is the actual successor to the hippie-flavor VW Bus we all love and remember. The Hannover plant will build this van and the updated T6.1 simultaneously. It will also assemble the hotly-anticipated retro-cool all-electric ID. Buzz will be the described VW Bus’ spiritual successor.

According to fleet.ie, production of the T6 and T6.1 will begin next year while the ID. Buzz (possibly called the ID.7) is set to begin in 2022. Retooling the Hannover plant will also do away with old tooling, namely Amarok machinery, will see the factory considerably reduce its annual emissions.

Interestingly, the changes at the plant will include a new bi-colour painting facility for current T family models, the new Multivan, and the ID. BUZZ. If you recall, most images of the Buzz and Bulli concepts feature a two-tone paint job, as it should.
