Volkswagen ID. Buzz – First Look!

From InsideEVs.

We get our first official look at the production spec Volkswagen ID. Buzz!

Volkswagen has been teasing the ID. Buzz for months now and it recently even showed off the vehicle’s exterior hidden only by symbolic camouflage that left nothing to the imagination. Today the automaker finally revealed the Buzz, which will eventually go on sale in the United States, although not in either of the two configurations that were just revealed.

The first is the short-wheelbase passenger version of the ID. Buzz, which will come with an 82 kWh battery pack (77 kWh usable capacity) and only one rear-wheel drive configuration motivated by the 201 horsepower (150 kW) / 229 pound-foot (310 Nm) motor used in other ID products. The sprint time to 100 km/h (62 mph) is not mentioned (probably around 9 seconds) but top speed is limited to 90 mph (145 km/h).

Peak charging speed is 170 kW (an increase over the maximum 135 kW you get in an ID.4), according to VW, and this will bring the battery from 5 to 80 percent in 30 minutes. The 11 kW on-board charger, available on the ID.3 and ID.4 too, needs just over 8 hours to fully charge the battery.
