- the 2024 volkswagen id.buzz microbus will be revealed on march 9, 2022.
- it will arrive in the united states in 2023 in its three-row passenger van configuration.
- pricing is expected to start around $40,000, and both single- and dual-motor version should be available.
the id.buzz is inspired by the iconic type 2 microbus that was introduced in the 1950s, and its design will be appropriately retro. we've seen prototypes testing and vw revealed a glimpse of the production version last fall (pictured). it'll be built on vw's modular electric drive (meb) platform that currently underpins the id.4 electric crossover on sale now in the states. we expect the id.buzz to offer a driving range of around 300 miles and both single- and dual-motor configurations providing rear- or all-wheel drive.
we'll only get a long-wheelbase passenger van version here in the u.s., and it will arrive in 2023 for the 2024 model year. it will offer three rows of seats that can be configured in multiple different ways—and they can even be removed. we expect pricing to start around $40,000 to make it competitive with other ev offerings. a commercial cargo version without windows will be sold in europe.
check back here in march for more specs and details when the new electric microbus makes its debut.
