The Future is Buzzing: Celebrating the Debut of Volkswagen’s ID.Buzz on June 2nd

  • June 2nd, 2023, marks the first International Volkswagen Bus Day, debuting the ID.Buzz.

  • The event celebrates Volkswagen’s electrification journey with product showcases and entertainment.

  • ID.Buzz, an all-electric three-row model, encapsulates Volkswagen’s commitment to a sustainable future.


 

In an event that marries past, present, and future, Volkswagen and the National Day Calendar have announced a worldwide celebration dedicated to the iconic Volkswagen Bus. June 2nd, 2023, will be the first-ever International Volkswagen Bus Day, an innovative initiative that not only honours the past but also heralds an exciting new chapter in the history of this legendary vehicle.

This inaugural celebration, taking place in Huntington Beach, California, is far more than a nostalgic nod to the original Type 2 VW Bus. It also serves as the global launch platform for Volkswagen’s latest electric vehicle, the three-row version of the ID. Buzz. This powerful combination of celebrating the past and embracing the future signals an exciting new direction for the iconic automobile brand.

 

A Day of Celebrations and Innovations

The International Volkswagen Bus Day promises a multitude of interactive and engaging activities for attendees. It will feature new product showcases, live entertainment, and live-streamed programming, along with a “Cars & Coffee” style gathering for classic Volkswagen Bus owners. This event is designed to be a mix of both media- and public-facing activities, ensuring a global reach for this significant launch.

Adding the International Volkswagen Bus Day designation is no mere marketing ploy. It marks a major milestone in the Volkswagen brand’s electrification journey. It also creates a day of celebration that Volkswagen Bus and ID. Buzz fans can look forward to each year, making it a significant event in the global automotive calendar.

 

The Future is Electric with the ID. Buzz

The ID. Buzz, the latest addition to Volkswagen of America’s growing fleet of all-electric vehicles, represents the brand’s commitment to a sustainable and electrified future. This three-row model, already available in Europe in two-row and cargo vehicle configurations, is slated to hit the North American market in 2024.

The ID. Buzz is a zero-emission vehicle that transports the design of one of the world’s most iconic automobiles—the Microbus—into the era of electric mobility. With its short overhangs, spacious interior, and an available two-tone colour palette, it is a respectful nod to its legendary predecessor. Simultaneously, its high-tech interior, progressive design features, and cutting-edge EV technology firmly position it as a vehicle of the future.

Cameron Batten, Chief Communications Officer of the Volkswagen Group of America, expressed his excitement about the ID. Buzz and the International Volkswagen Bus Day. “Whether you call them Buses, Bullis or Kombis, the legacy Type 2s have left on modern culture is unmatched,” he said. “As we continue to introduce the T2’s 21st Century electric successor, the ID. Buzz, we’re thrilled to create this annual day of celebration for Volkswagen bus fans and enthusiasts everywhere.”
