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

Volkswagen already has a hit on its hands, and it’s not yet come to North America

  • Demand for the electric minivan is obviously strong.

  • In Europe, VW already has 12,500 pre-orders in the bank.

How does the saying go? Ah yes: “Everything old is new again. Minivans came into prominence 40 years ago and all but died out in the mid-2010s. Thing is that they cannot be beaten for utility and, when combined with Volkswagen’s retro-modern interpretation of their storied Bus and electric power, it’s going to be a winner.

The Volkswagen ID.BUZZ Could be 10.6 Inches Longer in North America

And it is. Although we’re still about six months away from placing a pre-order in Canada and the US, European consumers have had the opportunity to put a deposit on a new VW ID. Buzz since early summer. So far, more than 12,500 buyers have put their names on the list and it’s still growing. In fact, interest in the new all-electric ID. Buzz is so strong that Volkswagen is looking to rapidly increase production to 100,000 units next to 130,000 shortly thereafter according to arstechnica.

The hype surrounding the Buzz is very strong in North America as well. There’s a strong likelihood that it will be added to VW’s production line in Chattanooga, or elsewhere, perhaps with the new Scout vehicles.
