It's obvious that we're a bit in love with the Volkswagen ID. Buzz here at Electrifying.com. It's a practical household vehicle with a sense of enjoyable and is perfectly designed. Add the big dose of nostalgia we feel whenever we get behind the wheel and you have one of the most appealing and enjoyable electric cars on the marketplace.
However even we will confess that it has limitations. Regardless of its vast size, buyers of the launch design have actually only been able to have five seats, while the 77kWh battery doesn't precisely sit will with long distance hauls. However here is the variation which appears to have the answers. It's the Buzz with more bus– as it's a longer, bigger, and quicker seven-seater.
Perhaps most notably– Volkswagen is FINALLY fixing the infotainment too!
The Buzz we are utilized to– which is now called the 'normal' wheel base – is 4,712 mm long. This Long wheelbase variation measures an extra 250mm in between the wheels.
That additional 250 mm is partially used up by bigger doors 192 mm, and a bit extra in between the door and rear wheel. The bigger doors likewise have electrically moving windows now too. The larger Buzz can be utilized as a five-seater with a big boot, a six-seater with private seats and armrests in the second row of seats and as a seven-seater.
A three-seater bench seat is utilized as standard in this 2nd row of seats. The back-rests can be reclined by 16 degrees to make it more comfortable, and the bench can be moved forwards and backwards by 200 mm, either totally or in sections
In the five-seater configuration, the load up to the upper edge of the back-rests results in a volume of 1,340 litres– about the like a mid-size SUV with the seats folded down.
The long-wheelbase Buzz will be offered with two battery sizes. The first is the 77kWh which we have already seen. However a brand-new, larger 85 kWh pack is also available, which comes with a more effective 282 bhp motor. That improves the 0-62mph time by 2.3 seconds to 7.9 seconds.
And that's not all: a four-wheel drive version called the GTX will use two motors to offer an output of 335 bhp will be coming later on in 2024. That will have a GTI-like 6.4 second 0-62 time. The battery can be charged quicker too, at up to 200 kW at a suitable DC battery charger, indicating a 10 to 80 percent top up takes 25 minutes. To speed things up a lot more, it includes the Tesla-like "Plug & Charge" system which suggests the activation and billing is automatic, without the requirement for charging cards or apps.
There are no main range figures yet for this model and we need to be sincere, the efficiency of the Buzz hasn't been the best when we've had them. However there is a brand-new heat pump to increase effectiveness in colder weather.
