Get Ready to Meet the Volkswagen ID. Buzz LWB Model: Debuting June 2!
The VW ID. Buzz made its debut over a year ago, excluding North America. On June 2, the long-wheelbase model will be unveiled, marking the official North American 2023 Volkswagen ID Buzz debut. To commemorate the occasion, Volkswagen, in collaboration with The National Day Calendar, will establish June 2 as International Volkswagen Bus Day. This special day will likely feature annual celebrations, including classic bus gatherings and, eventually, the arrival of the ID. Buzz in showrooms.
Cameron Batten, Volkswagen Group's chief communications officer in America, expressed the unmatched cultural impact of the iconic Type 2 buses and the excitement surrounding the introduction of the 21st Century electric successor, the ID. Buzz. With the European debut of the two-row model in March 2022, the North American ID. Buzz's appearance is no mystery. It will feature a flat face, thin headlights, and trim details. While prototypes have showcased single-color exteriors, the enduring charm of the EV lies in its two-tone finishes, which will be retained in the larger model. However, the exact size increase remains uncertain, although reports suggest it may expand by 10.6 inches, enabling the addition of an extra seat in the back.
The impact of the extended length on the battery size remains uncertain. North American customers can expect a more powerful dual-motor version of the 2023 VW ID. Buzz, potentially featuring a larger 111-kWh battery for 300 hp. Details will be unveiled soon, but the wait to drive the ID. Buzz in North America extends until 2024.
