Volkswagen Has More Than 20,000 Reservations for the ID. Buzz in Europe

Volkswagen’s ID. Buzz was a bonified hit the moment production was announced

  • The initial run will be limited to 82 kWh battery and rear-wheel drive models.

  • Volkswagen plans to assemble 15,000 units before the end of 2022.

These numbers are for Europe only. So, before you head over to Volkswagen’s website, we North Americans still have to wait months (Three? Six?) before we can place an order for the all-new ultra-hot ID. Buzz. And then we’ll need to wait many many more months before we can actually take delivery of the electric minivan.

Volkswagen is Planning to Build 130,000 ID. Buzz EVs per Year

The fact that VW’s already has 20,000 orders in hand for the quirky Buzz demonstrates that it will sell well. More than likely, demand will far outstrip availability and probably for the first two years if not longer.

“Even before the launch at our dealerships, since the start of advance sales, we’ve already been able to sell more than 20,000 ID. Buzz. With their availability in the showrooms, we are now expecting a further surge in demand,” said Lars Krause, Brand Management Board Member for Sales and Marketing at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

According to insideevs, Volkswagen will build 15,000 Buzzes by the end of 2022, 6,000 of which will be used by dealerships leaving only 9,000 for consumers. Eventually, the German automaker will ramp up production to 130,000 units annually.

Now, if you live in Canada or the US, the odds are that a similar picture will be painted the moment reservations open. In other words, when the books open, you’d better be clicking on “place order” or be left out in the cold for months (possibly years).
