VW ID.Buzz: we spend a month with VW’s retro bus. Do we still love it as much? / Electrifying

After years of waiting, the Volkswagen ID. Buzz is finally here. It comes in two versions initially: a five-seat family van and an ID. Buzz Cargo, with up to three seats across the front and large load area at the back. Down the line we’ll get a longer wheelbase version with more seating and if you’re very patient it will eventually be joined by a California Camper – the one we all want!

We’ve already reviewed the Cargo and we’ve pitted this car against the Model Y – yes really, check that video out when you’ve watched this (links below).

In this video, we take a deep dive into the ID. Buzz. We’re one of the only channels to have had a Buzz on loan for almost a month and it’s safe to say that we’ve learned a lot more during that period… Good and not so good.

Join Nicki as she discovers what the Volkswagen ID. Buzz is like to live with over an extended period of time. What is it like in colder weather? What can kind of range can you expect? How much attention does it attract?

As always, we’d love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment below. Is the ID. Buzz on your shortlist or would you choose something else. If so, let us know what!
