There will be Three Versions of the Volkswagen ID. Buzz

The all-electric Volkswagen ID. Buzz will serve many purposes and always look good

  • The retro-styled ID. Buzz goes on sale in Europe next year, 2024 for North America.

  • Versions will include “ride-pooling”, ride-hailing, and cargo.

  • Level 4 autonomous vans planned for 2025.

We are getting closer to seeing the much-anticipated Volkswagen ID. Buzz on our roads. Many prototypes have been photographed driving about in Europe as it will launch there next year. In order to reach as many potential customers as possible, Volkswagen will provide three distinct versions.

North America will get a ride-hailing iteration where there will be only four seats on board. Two will face forward while the other two will face rearward. In contrast, Europe will be offered a six-passenger variant for “ride-pooling” services. Each individual seat will have its own information screen. According to Automotive News Europe, the final version will be the IB. Buzz Cargo.

By 2025, or shortly after the van hits the market, VW plans to offer Level 4 autonomy with its various Buzz vans. The technology will be available in certain markets and be configured for both passenger and cargo transportation.

“Our answer is autonomous delivery vans for the distribution networks of tomorrow, where delivery workers no longer need driver’s licenses and become passengers who focus on their loads and the order of deliveries,” Christian Senger, VW’s head of development for autonomous driving said during the company’s Strategy 2030 presentation on July 13.
