Volkswagen ID. Buzz Delayed Until 2023

Volkswagen admits that the ID. Buzz is their most popular EV concept ever. Sadly, we’ll have to wait another year


  • The electric VW Bus was expected in 2022.

  • The delay is primarily related to VW’s Hanover, Germany, plant.

  • The interest in this EV is excessively high.


Almost a decade ago, Volkswagen revealed the electric Bulli concept at that year’s Geneva Motor Show. What this concept did for Volkswagen is prove that there remains lots of life left in their vans. Back in 2017, at the NAIAS, VW lifted the wraps off the ID. Buzz. Up until just now, Volkswagen had promised that the minivan was coming to North America in 2022. Sadly, that’s no longer the case.

Scott Keogh, CEO of Volkswagen of America, confirmed to Automotive News (subscription required) that the electric reincarnation of the microbus will not come to our shores in 2022 but rather in 2023. According to the story, the delay is due to VW’s Hanover, Germany, plant also building a smaller commercial electric van, alongside the Buzz. As we know, demand and profit margins are high for these commercial vehicles.

Volkswagen admits that the ID. Buzz is the most popular EV concept they have ever shown. Keogh said he regularly gets texts from VW and non-VW dealers about the ID. Buzz as to when it arrives.

Keogh adds: “I think what the consumer can expect, I think is just pure, magic Volkswagen. You drive it, the world is going to be talking. The reaction’s been huge, and we just got to get it here. It’s as simple as that.”
