Volkswagen ID. Buzz 2022 first drive – Why you’ll want VW’s retro bus in your life / Electrifying

Read more electric VW reviews and VW’s plans to build an electric camper version of the ID. Buzz here:

Volkswagen has been teasing us with plans to build a modern-day version of its Type 2 Bus for around two decades. During that time the blueprints might have switched from petrol to electric, but the basic idea to bring back an iconic design have stayed broadly the same.

The ID. Buzz is based on VW’s electric MEB platform, which is being used on a range of EV VWs such as the ID.3 and ID.4. But the Buzz will come as a bus and as a van with a distinctly retro flavour, and there’s even a camper version coming along not too far in the future.

It’s easily one of the stars of 2022 in the EV world and gets its full unveiling in March, but Ginny has been given a first drive before the covers are officially taken off.
