Carsten Intra, Chairman of Volkswagen’s Commercial Vehicle Brand Management Board, said that both versions of the VW ID. Buzz has pioneered sustainability in manufacturing and shipping its carbon-neutral footprint.
“ID. Buzz will also be used for future autonomous mobility concepts such as ridepooling and is also part of the future of inner-city transportation,” he said on his official website, Friday (11/3/2022).
As standard, VW ID. This Buzz Cargo only comes with one sliding door on the right side. However, this version of the car can also be configured with two sliding doors at an extra cost.
This cargo model gets a variety of optional equipment, from exterior ambient lighting, electric tailgate, to LED matrix headlights and a folding trailer tow bar as well as a heated and electrically foldable rearview camera as an added feature.
Although the exterior is not much different from the passenger version, however, ID. Buzz Cargi has wider dimensions with a length of 4,712 mm, a width of 1,985 mm, a height of 1,937 mm and a wheelbase of 2,988 mm and a slightly wider load sill at 619 mm.
The partition walls on this car can optionally be equipped with windows and/or openings for placing items. As for the loading area, it is large enough to accommodate two euro pallets and can support a maximum load of 650 kg.
The cargo space itself is of course large in volume at 3,900 liters with dimensions of 2,208 mm in length, 1,732 mm in width and 1,279 mm in height with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 3,000 kg.
To secure the load in the rear compartment, Volkswagen has installed lashing rings on the floor as well as lashing rails on the side walls. In addition, the presence of five USB-C ports, ensures that the smartphone will never run out of power.
In the two-seater version, ID. The Buzz Cargo has 1.4 liters of storage space in the center, which is a removable box.
Wooden flooring in the cargo area comes standard, as does what VW calls a “strong” floor covering at the front. The vehicle featured in this article is the tallest type with a two-tone display, but the base van has a monochromatic body finish and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Regarding performance, Volkswagen ID. Buzz Cargo is equipped with a rear-wheel electric motor which is claimed to be capable of pumping power of 201 hp and maximum torque of 310 Nm. The electric motor is powered by a battery with a capacity of 82 kWh. Although it is claimed to be able to run at a speed of 145 kph, unfortunately, VW has not announced about the range that this electric van can reach.
VWID. Buzz Cargo is available for pre-order in Europe from May. The van will launch in the fall after entering production in Hannover, Germany, in the first half of this year. The same goes for the passenger variant, while the California camper will follow around 2025.
