New VW ID Buzz prices and specs
The passenger version of the new Volkswagen ID Buzz is available to order now, with prices starting from £57,115.
Three trim levels are available: Life, Style and 1st Edition. The commercial vehicle version with no rear seats will also be available to order from August this year, with prices starting from £38,125.
New VW ID Buzz Life
Base model Life cars start at £57,115 in the UK and come pretty generously equipped. You get LED headlights as standard, along with a heated windscreen, a 10-inch touchscreen and wireless charging for you phone.
All ID Buzz models also get a digital driver’s display, similar to that of the Volkswagen ID4, as well as an optional two-tone paint scheme.
Volkswagen ID Buzz Style
Style versions of the ID Buzz gain matrix LED headlights which can blank out part of their beam to prevent dazzling oncoming drivers, as well as interior ambient lighting. This model will set you back £61,915.
Volkswagen ID Buzz 1st Edition
If you want a range-topping 1st Edition ID Buzz, you’ll have to part with £62,995. For this, you get unique 21-inch alloy wheels, an upgraded 12-inch touchscreen, and electric comfort seats with memory functions.
New VW ID Buzz Cargo LCV
The cargo version of the new Volkswagen ID Buzz (pictured above) will be available to order from August this year and will be offered in two trim levels: Commerce and Commerce Plus.
Volkswagen ID Buzz Commerce
Basic Commerce versions of the Volkswagen ID Buzz start from £38,125. For this you get a heated drivers seat, front and rear parking sensors, a 10.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and LED headlights. All commercial versions of the ID Buzz also come with three free services and one MOT.
Volkswagen ID Buzz Commerce Plus
Upgrade to the Commerce Plus version of the ID Buzz and you get adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, parking assist, a reversing camera and a heated windscreen. All this will set you back £42,375.
New VW ID Buzz motors and batteries
The first ID Buzz models on sale come with the largest 77kWh battery. This is capable of charging at up to 170kW – that’s fast enough to boost the batteries from 5% to 80% full in half an hour. A full charge will give you around 260 miles of range.
The first wave (or should that be swarm?) of ID Buzz models also get a 204hp electric motor driving the rear wheels. VW is expected to offer additional motor and battery combinations at a later date.
New VW ID Buzz design
If you have a hankering for a modern Volkswagen Type 2, the VW ID Buzz should tickle your fancy.
Its two-tone paint finish (one of 11 different paint options) is unashamedly inspired by the classic van, as is the V-shaped bonnet, the square sides and the upright rear windscreen.
You’ll also spot some straked detailing towards the rear that serves as a subtle nod to the old Volkswagen T2. A sliding door appears on the five-seat VW ID Buzz giving you easy access to the rear seats.
In the UK, you get 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, although these get bigger as you go up the range. The largest you can get are 21-inch units on the range-topping 1st Edition models.
New VW ID Buzz interior and infotainment
Despite its remarkably retro exterior, the interior of the Volkswagen ID Buzz is about as modern as it gets.
Coloured accents bring some of the ID Buzz’s retro-inspired exterior character into the cabin, and you can choose from a range of dashboard inserts including the wooden trim pieces in these photos.
A 5.3-inch digital driver’s display comes as standard and offers you key driving information such as current speed and your remaining range. It works in much the same way as the one you get in a Volkswagen ID3 and ID4.
Sitting in the centre of the dashboard is a 10-inch infotainment system, which can be upgraded to a larger and more advanced 12-inch version if you’re happy to pay a bit extra.
The interior features sustainable materials for the environmentally conscious buyer. These include recycled plastics and vegan leather upholstery. As standard, the VW ID Buzz will be a five-seater – six- and seven-seat variants are due to follow in 2023.
With all five seats in place, the ID Buzz gives you 1,121 litres of boot space.
VW ID Buzz Cargo
The VW ID Buzz Cargo comes with a similar interior to the standard five-seater but does away with the back seats. As a result, there’s enough space back there to carry two Euro pallets.
