The Hanover plant was updated during the three-week summer break.
The long wheelbase version will begin rolling off the assembly line this year.
Well, we will but only in about two years’ time. The important element is that production will be underway at the Hanover plant for the long wheelbase (LWB) version of the Volkswagen ID. Buzz and that lessons will be learned.
Up until now, only the regular wheelbase ID. Buzz was rolling off the assembly line. Production began in June although not without a hiccup or two. Even so, things are moving along, and Volkswagen’s just completed a series of updates to the facility, according to electrive, in order for it to begin building the LWB.
The bigger Buzz will allow Volkswagen to further expand the minivan’s potential. The LWB Buzz is the one headed our way, so we’ll eventually get some official specifications. The details could include a larger battery which could reach up to 111 kWh, up from the current 82 kWh unit.
One of the potential new models could be a pickup version. VW Group’s Twitter account shared a design draft earlier this year. In our opinion, it should definitely join the minivan on the assembly lines, both in Hanover and Chattanooga.
As a reminder to our Canadian readers, orders for the 2024 Volkswagen ID. Buzz opens in 2023 and deliveries should begin in 2024.
